Another Quilt for Charity
Are you having moments yet where you can either sew for yourself.. or sew for christmas for others? It's that time of year where I look at my to-do list and nearly faint. However one big thing has been trying to get a few quilts out for charity.
I was inspired by Auntspicy and friends "100 Quilts for Christmas" and have managed to crank out two baby quilts in between school, work and life. It makes me feel good and I like that. I had alot of fun making these two quilts and also taking photos of them actually. I've never gone out of my way to take nice photos of my quilt so that was kinda different and challenging.
This quilt I started following a pattern I had but I was using fat quarters and realized after cutting up about 5 of the 6 QQ's I had cut the fabric the wrong direction and would either have to start again or try something different.. which I did. I've never made up my own pattern before and that fun!
And of course I didn't have enough fabric for my backing.. and not wanting to leave the house I had to make do.
Another first for me was I decided to buy some Machingers OMLG (oh my lady ga-ga) these things have been life altering.
Thanks for stopping in to have a look!! :)
