Mr "Plad" Boy

Quilted and Binded just in time for Sew N' Tell Friday!
Such a basic quilt that I whipped up using all my left over plaid fabrics.
And for the quilting part of it I just did an all over stipple since that is really all I'm good at.
And i'm excited at how the binding turned out. Usually it only looks good when i hand bind it but I used my machine on this one and it turned out great. Click here to read more about how I am slowly perfecting my binding skills!

Thanks for looking and check out all the other projects on


  1. Glad you finished in time! Great job on the fabric choices and the way you added interest to the backing!

  2. I have a thing for this!
    Visiting from amylouwho. Nice job!

  3. Such a perfect quilt! I love how you binded it with different fabrics. Plaids are a big favorite of mine, and I have tons of small leftovers. I think your quilt is going straight to my inspiration folder, if you don't mind.

  4. I love that border, so great. I've got a plaids quilt in my future as well. I think I'll try a scrappy border too! Nice job.

  5. Wonderful Quilt! I just love patchy bindings!

  6. I really, really like your quilt. Your stippling is great.

  7. I really like the look of this quilt. It screams to be cuddled under.

  8. This is really great! Perfect for a boy's room. I love the plaid and the scrappy binding! This one is going in my folder. :)

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.

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.
