my creative space

quilt a long

The cutting out is done!  Sound the trumpets!  Hooray! (That's just the last of the pile in that picture, there's plenty more pieces where they came from)

You see what a little blogging promise can do to my motivation levels?  I wanted to make sure I had something to write about today too, haha!

So now it's time to start sewing this quilt together which, quite frankly, I'm a little scared about.  There's so many pieces I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to keep it all straight and beautiful.  Oh well.  At least I am about four billion weeks behind everyone else so I can read ahead.

I'm also about to have my first ever sewing encounter with stretch fabric (I'm obviously having a very ambitious week).  Who knows how that will turn out?  Any tips?

Now I'm headed over to kootoyoo to be inspired by what everyone else is doing


  1. I find using the quarter inch foot on my machine helps keep the blocks even. Do you have one? They are worth getting if you dont. Good luck with it, love the materials youve chosen.

  2. Thanks for the tip Leah, I will definitely look into that :)

  3. Ooh lovely, I like the colours you've chosen!
