I made a summer top – the first clothing sewing I’ve done in about twenty years. Even had to put in a zipper!
I recently ordered some more patterns – despite having three file cabinet drawers filled with patterns from the old days. Unfortunately I’ve gotten a little more “mature” in size so many are no longer my size. I hope to do more clothing sewing on a regular basis from now on.
After the Block Gather was so successful, she made arrangements with the organization to accept finished quilts from other quilters. When I heard about this, I knew this was the perfect destination for the Dino Sports 2 quilt since I’d only made it to use up the fabrics and I didn’t have any more young relatives to gift it to. I already had the quilt half way quilted when I bought my new machine so I got to finish the quilting, binding (attached by machine which is the way I bind all my quilts), a pillowcase and the best part, made a monogrammed label for the quilt and donated it in early August for the Basics Quilt Gather.
Well, that catches me up. Hopefully with school started, I can try to post more regularly. Hope your Summer was good and your Fall will be even better!
