mini quilt complete!

I have shown the top before but now it is quilted and binded!
i'm not very good at picking a quilting design so I just followed the triangles from the white triangles.

And I just used it as a guide as I quilted it. The correct term is Shadow Quilting.
and here is the design from the back. I think the quilting turned out pretty cool from the back. and the scrappy binding really stands out on this side.

I pulled the pattern for the paper piecing block from the website

And here are some details on the binding. I Love the mitered corners, I love when they turn out perfect!
I did a blind hem stitch on the back and I decided on a scrappy binding because I could not decide on just one fabric.

I love the blind hem stitch and do this when I'm not pressed for time. It's so relaxing and the best part because its then end you know your project is almost complete, its the last step to your quilt so you enjoy every last step of it.     Kinda like the last bite of cheesecake!

I was trying to experiment with the right angle and pose of the quilt but didn't have much luck getting a great picture....some days I struggle more than others with my camera.

Thanks so much for looking! You will be blown away at all the other Paper Piecing quilts here.

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
