My New Business Card

My New Business Card

 

Just got the shipping confirmation on my new cards! I feel like this is the start of my new business, and I want to thank everyone who helped me along the way. Without all of the viewers on the website I would not be able to get these.  Thank you!

PS. Don’t they look awesome!

Good Morning Quilting World

Hello quilting world! I totally slept in, and I think it was much needed. I have been working on the current project quite incessantly, and I feel I needed a break, but now that I am well rested I shall go eat a banana, and start the quilting again. I should have everything done by the end of today including the boarder. So here is to hoping, and I’ll post as soon as I can!

Love you all!

Secret Project Post #3

So, as you all can see I have been working on the piecing of my super secret quilt project. The name is still under construction as is the quilt top itself. I have been slaving over it all day… well part o the day. I think I took a dinner break, and I did watch an episode of Mad Men. Anywho, I’ve been working on this darn thing and I must say it is time consuming. Because of the placement of the blue pieces, it is taking a lot more sewing than I had thought.

While I have your attention, let me explain more about this quilt. I was actually inspired by an applique piece I saw on a patchwork background. I thought about doing something similar, and I had been thinking about project ideas for about two days when I thought. I can make the patch work the background and the foreground. I decided to use the blooming 9 patch pattern for the focal backdrop, while the vibrant blue color is the focal foreground. The blue star is the focal point of the quilt, and the blooming 9 patch of black and red is the background.  I really hope people understood that.

Anyways, I’m going to sleep here in a little bit and just wanted to update everyone on my work.

PS. Soon I’ll work on getting a better camera, or better lighting.

We Have A New Home!!!

So, I am loving WordPress and now I have my own domain. I feel like it was a smart move. I can monetize the hits, which means more money for quilting, and means I can eventually add the store link on here so I can sell stuff via this website. I am slightly bummed because the formatting is not as user friendly as Blogger was, but it was a trade off. So, here we are, with a new home, and eventually I’ll have some more people posting besides just me. I happen to know a quilting Maven who just might jump at the chance to pass on her knowledge through my blog. Can’t guarantee anything, but it is a possibility in the future, and I am very excited for it.

Speaking of new additions, I shall also be adding a gallery to showcase all of my work, past and present. This way everyone can track the progress of my works throughout time. I was actually talking to a friend of mine, the aforementioned quilting maven, as she told me how much my work has progressed from simple geometric patterns, to more complex patterns. She told me this while I was b****ing about how much more work this current quilt is versus most of my past quilts. She was right. I look at my first quilt and I see how simple it was compared to my current project. 

So here is to growth over the next year, and to making Quilting my full time profession and not just my hobby!
