Bloggers Quilt Festival

I am presenting  Flock O' Geese!
I saw this quilt in Elm Creek Quilts books and had to make one myself! I just love the little triangles. And I made it from some leftover Urban Couture fabrics.

What I learned most is to iron..actually "Press" Press, Press.

I just love the little triangles! And another thing that was helpful is measure 1/4 away from the point. It is very important that you always leave 1/4 alowance or else you will just sew off the tip of the triangles...and again, press-not iron.

I also quilted and binded this myself. What I really wanted to do is straight line quilting but did not know where to run the lines thru so I just did an allover stippling on the long arrm.

The binding is also from the Urban couture line and I did a blind stitch on the back of the binding.
Oh and It's kinda exciting to mention that I entered this is my local County Fair and it won 1st place in it's category.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my quilt...Make sure to check out all the others.

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.

(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
