Quilting!

I went to my sewing lesson the other day and had the very best time.  I decided to make a wall hanging and actually quilt it myself.  Now, I have made quilts in the past, but I’ve only sewn the pieces together and had someone else do the quilting.  Let me see if I can find a picture of one of them.

This is my first one, although I didn’t make it wide enough.

Here is a close up. I really like it.

I decided to make my wall hanging with my Christmas fabric because I have so much of it.  I bought it a few years ago, for what I can’t remember.  I  didn’t want to buy more fabric because I have been spending a little too much money lately on fun things.  Anyway, this will be great to try on since I consider it “free” material.

These are going to be the borders.

These are my cute little triangles for the hanging.

I took me forever to cut them because I was so afraid I would mess them up.

Here is my stack.  I have to sew them together into squares.  That’s my homework for this week.

Don’t worry, it will look good when I get it done – At least that’s what I tell myself.

I’ll keep you apprised of my progress.

I have big plans.  I’m hopeful that it turns out nice and I can make wall hangings for all the seasons and holidays.  I have the perfect place in my home to hang them.  I only hope that I get this done before next Christmas.

These are my partners in crime.  Wherever I am, they are.  Here, we are in the office/craft room.  The problem is that Sugar always wants to be under the sewing table.  They are such mama’s girls.

Have a great day!
