A Short Update

I entered my first quilt show! I didn't place, which I pretty much expected, but I had 3 quilts in the show all with my name on them! Aaaahhhhh!

The first quilt was Niece Quiche's Star Wars quilt. My sister was kind enough to send it back to me to put a hanging sleeve on and compete with.

The second was for Twig, my one year old son. The top has been done October? I knew I wanted to quilt it on my new mid-arm machine but kept procrastinating because I didn't feel ready to do it. Like I would mess the quilt up if I did it. I spent a lot of time picking out the quilting and actually had the machine break down but the owner of the company that made my machine was very helpful via email and we got it working again. I finished this quilt the day before everything had to be turned in for the show.

I called this "Twig Cabin" since we called my son Twig until we decided on his name.
 The third was for baby H3, my nephew. His nursery was ocean themed so I designed and made this quilt in less than a month. When the mid-arm broke down I immediately switched gears and prepared it for quilting on Jenny the Janome. The quilting was simple and pretty fast, and this was finished the day before the show as well.

  1. Very nice quilts! I'm surprised none of them placed ... especially the Star Wars quilt! But I'm not sure how those shows work as I've never been to one. I love them all and I give all grand prize!

  2. I'm fairly new to the quilting blog world. I came across yours today through quilterblogs. Congratulations on taking that step to entering your quilts in a quilt show. I haven't been brave enough to do that yet.

    I had to take an extra peek at your Star Wars quilt. I love how you designed this one. My husband has been begging me to do something similar and make him a Goofy (Disney) quilt for years now.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you, if you've got the time to leave a comment!
