I know everyone is saying it...but time is going so fast!! I can't believe it's March already! I realized yesterday, we'll be packing our house and preparing to move in less than three months!! Yikes!! I have a lot I want/need to accomplish in that time. <
I did get a big job checked off my list by the end of last week though. A little bit before Christmas, I agreed to make TWO quilts out of baby clothes for a customer. I've made tshirt quilts before and I feel pretty comfortable making them with no major issues. So I figured, why not? It would be a little extra money and wouldn't be too difficult, right? Ha...famous last words!! This was the most challenging project I think I've ever made and much more time consuming than I ever imagined. I probably put 30+ hours into EACH of these quilts....really I stopped keeping track because it was too depressing. LOL
Anyway...they aren't perfect, but they are done and the Momma was happy!!
I used flannel on the back and did the binding on my machine. Not my preferred method, but I think it's better for this type of quilt.
The second one....
I'm happy they are done and I can move on to other quilt projects!!
I pulled out a wool project I'd like to finish up and I needed a couple of ideas for shapes and designs. Pinterest is always good for finding the right thing...I found something I really liked, but it was a dead link...so I resorted to this. I traced it right off my computer screen. Oops...I hope that's okay to do! LOL I promise I'm not going to market it as my own design...it's just going on my own little project. :)
p.s. Anyone know how to get Sharpie marker spots off your computer screen? Oops again...LOL
