First Quilt On Long Arm, Seaglass Progress

I finally made the leap from the practice quilt to a real one this week. I finished piecing the baby quilt, loaded it on the frame and quilted a lovely meander! I think it took me the same amount of time to load it as it did the actual quilting! It was fun and I learned as I went about advancing the quilt and knowing where to start and end a pass.

I’m looking forward to quilting another one soon which will be my student, Nancy’s, beautiful star quilt.

We finished up seaming the back and cut the batting for it yesterday. I have it in my studio and will be getting to that soon.

I also made some progress pinning pieces of the Seaglass quilt. I have ten blocks left to piece and then I can begin sewing blocks into rows. I can’t wait to find time to finish them up.

Sewing Progress & An Interesting Article

Happy Thursday!

It’s been a slow week for me over here as I’ve been saddled with a cold and some nasty fatigue. I’m feeling better today so I’m thrilled. I tried to get in some sewing for the craft fair in December and I managed to make a few tote bags and even some Star Wars bibs.

After asking around a bit about the best way to do the closures on the bibs, I settled on plastic snaps. I ordered this Kam Snap Plier bundle set from Amazon for $25. It came yesterday but I haven’t tried it yet.

I ordered some Minion and Frozen fabric this week too. It has arrived and it is washed and waiting to be pressed. These will be for pillow cases.

I came across this article from James Clear about creativity and whether it is a function of destiny or development. It speaks to creativity being a process. I think it’s a great read and very inspiring. What do you think?
