How are you ending your year? What are your plans??
Mine include getting settled into my new sewing room I got for Christmas (thanks to my grown son’s moving out mid December)!!
|Love that fresh buttercream paint in the room 🙂|
And some slow stitching…
and some piecing too!
First up is my slow stitching project that I have been working on more focused since I finished the Byrum Family Quilt. Here it is in my hoop…
I have 3 of the 6 stars quilted using DMC Perle 12 cotton.. and I am loving the DMC brand a LOT!
Here is a full shot of Wish Upon a Vintage Star Wall Hanging so far…
I have only quilted the cream background and the top 3 stars so far. Here is a close up shot of those 3 stars…
Forgive my hoop marks and enjoy the quilting please 🙂
During the day at some point I find my way to my new sewing room and make “hexi stars” as the first part of a quilt top… here is a pic of the finished pattern
I love the zig zag edges on the sides and plan to finish mine similarly….
Here is my sewing space in my sewing room how I generally like my set up…
I got to choose where I wanted to be… initally I would take up the whole room… but once I decided on what worked best for my quilting then I decided to split the room with my honey… so this is my side 🙂
I have everything in a semicircle kind of so I can swivel and scoot a bit and be right in front of my ironing table, or my cutting board, or my sewing machine, or my design wall ( which will be stained dark soon to match the sewing machine cabinet 🙂
I love using my vintage iron and my new cutting mat and of course my 301 A Gloria is GRAND! lol
The remote is on the table to control Pandora … I love listening to music when I piece a quilt… it keeps me calm 🙂
So for now I am hand quilting outside and machine piecing inside.. I like the separation of spaces and projects.. plus I have several projects coming up that will interrupt my progress…
Do you follow me? 2015 is gonna be a stellar year for me in quilting. I would love to have you as a regular reader if you aren’t already 🙂
Have a happy Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy & her linky party HERE!
Until my next post!
