Time for Sew n' Tell...

Some of you may have already seen this quilt. It is my
I had the top finished so long ago...
And FINALLY I quilted it!  It took me so long to quilt because I did not know what design to use.
So I went with the  feather design. I think it turned out okay.  I just really wish I would have used a thicker batting. I am still in search of the perfect batting. I want something a tad more thicker than warm n natural.This quilt does have a lot of mistakes  because it was one of my first quilts. The whites i used were really cheap fabric so you can actually see thru it to the backing fabric!! If I would have used thicker batting that would not have happened plus it would have hid the squares not matching up on the front....but you quilt and you learn!

Now I need to get working on the binding. I have not decided what fabric to use for it yet but next week I will post the binding and let you see the back!
Thank you for looking!  And I have to mention that AMY Lou Who's blog party is my favorite! Click on the link to see all the other Sew & Tells!


  1. It looks great! Love the feathers! Have you thought about using wool batting? I have made one quilt with wool. It has a bit higher loft than cotton or bamboo. You can machine wash it but you can't dry it in the machine. It's lovely and warm in the winter.

  2. I love your quilt!! :o) Is this a particular pattern or did you create it yourself? I just love the stars and 9 patches. :o)
    Have a great day.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
