A friend of mine recently started her own dream business of doing long arm quilting!  I am very excited because I love the piecing part and hate the quilting part. I also like doing the binding...between her skills and mine, I am hoping more quilts actually get done this winter!!  She takes mail orders so if anyone is interested...

I have been woefully lax in any actual quilt projects. I have been buying fabrics, and looking at patterns, but any actual quilting has been non-existant...

Same.  Sad  Although I made a bag a couple of weeks ago that I'm quite proud of (although I'm in the middle of re-doing the lining because I fluffed it a bit the first time, and I want to add a grab handle), and I jut finished a cushion for my niece for her birthday.  Will take some pics in a bit...

I might have to look into this... Because, I have plans to make some quilts, but don't want to mess them up with badly done (meaning, by me) quilting.

I don't usually quilt a lot during the summer. It can get quite hot in my craft room. I can take my sewing machine downstairs but my quilting soon takes over the whole living room .... I work on my hexie project during winter. We like to watch Netflix under a blanket and the hexie project is already big enough to cover us while I'm stitching away.

I bought many yards of a Robert Kaufman christmas flannel last week, but not for a quilting project. As we sadly don't have a lot of close family, we celebrate christmas with friends in the same situation. One day we cook nice food and dress up and one day we spend in our pyamas, watch films and eat leftovers. I'm going to sew everyone matching pyama pants and put them under the tree.

We are also getting married some time in the future (we got engaged in Dec 16, but we didn't actually pick a date yet) and I'd like to make us a special wedding quilt. I've already picked out the sampler I'm going to cross stitch, but I haven't found the right quilt pattern yet. I'm definitely going to have that one professionally quilted.

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.

I wish we could get over with it and be married already! The vow itself holds a lot of meaning to us, which is why we want to be married. But all the hassle surrounding it ... we've been putting it off because we're not looking forward to that part. We've considered eloping but we're not sure it would mean less fuss (although it would be after the wedding, not before). Whenever you let it slip that you're engaged everybody just seems to get hysterical. We're determined to have a low-key wedding.

I'm still kind of stuck on the wedding quilt. I want to make a heritage type quilt, a quilt we're going to cherish for a long time. I'm thinking of a 1930s style quilt because they seem fresh and modern but not so fashionable that they will look outdated in a few years. I'm not an extremely skilled quilter so the pattern shouldn't be too difficult, and I'd prefer to buy all the fabrics from the same range for this project as I'm not 100% confident matching fabrics. I do a lot of scrap quilts these days because in the past I have messed up pretty badly matching fabrics, even when I asked for advice at the shop beforehand. But then I want something really nice and not 13 a dozen either. And something not too girly because my fiance wil object. I know this sounds totally contradictory, which is why I'll probably need some more time to decide  Roll Eyes
