Bargello Quilt Top Kit and Pattern

I finally got around to finishing the quilt top! Now just to quilt it! However, I did take the time to make the pattern and I’m selling it with the Wilmington 40 Karat Black set. Check it out on Etsy here! Now

if you’ll excuse me, I have a commission Mario quilt to get cracking on! Wish me luck!

I Have A New Job!

Sorry I haven’t posted lately, but I just got a new job which starts next week! I’m beyond excited! I’m really going to miss my current job, but It’s time for a change! Also more money! And we all know More Money = More Fabric! I’ll keep everyone posted! Wish me luck!

Working On A New Bargello Quilt Project

0811161726

MY friends and I decided to make some Bargello quilts, and I bought one of those 40 Karat Packs from Wilmington Prints, and I decided to add a splash of color with those two red strips. I’m really excited to see how this turns out. I promise to keep everyone updated! Wish me luck!

PS. I’ll be selling the kit for this project shortly! I just have to finish it first!

12 Ribbons

I think I did pretty okay at the Lake County Fair. It was the first show I had ever done, and I’m so happy I did it! I won two best in show ribbons. One for my Machine Quilted Quilt, “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”, and another for my rug made from scraps of fabric and cording. I got a handful of other ribbons for some of my other work, including: River in Flames, and Alice in The Garden of Eden. I’m beyond words at this point. I finally got a chance to swing by there and take some photos, and it was so worth it! It really made all the hard work I put into quilting seem worth it! I know I shouldn’t need ribbons to make myself feel like I’m doing a good job, but it does make me warm and fuzzy! I had some very stiff competition; I’m already getting ready for next year. Next year my goal is 30 pieces! We’ll see! Wish me luck!

 

I’m Entering Show’s Again

Everyone knows how my favorite quilt was rejected by a quilt show, and I made the mistake of of taking it personally. However, now that my quilt has some legitimate credentials, I decided to start entering it in quilt shows. I know I need to grow a thicker skin, and not take things personally, but it’s still an effort. Wish me luck! I just filled out my first call to entry form tonight! I’m excited!

People have asked, and I have answered. I just added the 6″ by 6″ Pokemon Go Design set to my Etsy shop! I’ve gotten a few requests for the design set in the sizes I put on bath towels, and I went ahead and made the available for you! And don’t forget to send me pictures of what you are doing with the designs!
