quilty quilts

I'm not completely done with this quilt. I just couldn't wait to show you!
I still have to complete the binding...I don't know if this is just a bad picture or what but it almost looks too quilted? I did an all over stipple since that is the only one that I am good at on the long arm.

I want to learn how to do straight quilting on the long arm but I think there is a specific ruler needed for it and none of my local quilt shops have them. I have seen them online and some are $20. while others are $55! Why? I need some feedback on what kind to get....


And this quilt is completely finished now... There are better pictures of it in my previous post.

And the back is just a plain pink with a little detail... I can't believe how well the quilting is showing up, remember, I'm just learning and the swirls is a new design I'm trying. It's all freehand that is probably why it doesn't look the best but I still love it!


Thanks for looking! Check out the other links below...

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.

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
