big charmer

long weekends

the reason I got this fabric

are the best when you can include some simple sewing.

girly quilt

that quickly turns into a, very girly, quilt top.

ready to quilt and bind!

I picked up some thread and fabric today for quilting and binding. I can't wait to see it all come together.

the quilt this morning

they should also include some hand quilting I think. not pictured above, the dog that is constantly laying on top of the quilt as I try to stitch. it's cute until I have to move the quilt.

what they shouldn't include? migraines. I wanted to post some links on friday but never got the chance to because of headaches. so here's some monday link love instead:

  • have you checked out stef's new online class?! it's an intro to knitting, from casting on to binding off and everything in between (knit, purl, lace, reading patterns, blocking, and even knitting with alternate materials) watching it made me miss knitting and hanging out with stef (she's pretty much like that in real life, I promise). hopefully my arm will feel better soon and I can pick up the sticks again. I think the link gives you a 50% discount on the class (am I right here stef?)!
  • I really, really, really can't wait for melody miller's next line! that dragonfly kills me
  • I am so in love with maritza's single girl quilt. I can't believe she made it up herself. actually, yes I can.
  • I don't know if it's just because I love new gadgets so much or because I hate patterns with no seam allowances with a passion, but I really want to order one of these seam allowance guides. it looks like you just add it to your scissors and go.

big charmer quilt

I've been calling this the purple quilt, the birthday quilt, the big charmer, selfishness in a quilt, and the quilt of awesome. I'm pretty much indulging myself with this project. tons of fabric from the stash, some simple patchwork, and some silk batting.

hand stitching

all leading up to some hand quilting with perle cotton. we'll see how long it takes. did I mention this is a queen size quilt? I'm just enjoying the process right now.

big charmer

I have a long way to go, but I already know this is going to be a favorite.
