This just in…

on January 3, 2011

Made for the new year another quilt top I FINALLY cut into my Freebird for Momo by Moda…. And here is the pretty top I finished!!

I LOVE IT!! Simple yet beautiful.

 

I have some how got to figure out this quilting thing. I am sending of 3 of my tops to a quilter to be done but I really dislike how long the turn around is going to take. I just want to be able to do it myself and have it here for me to cuddle with.

I really got frusterated with this quilt top as it was very simple 8.5inch squares so that when sewn they would be 8″ squares… now I have a 1/4 seam foot on my sewing machine and somehow most the rows were even and then some were off…. and I don’t mean a small 1/4 inch off I mean they were close to an inch off!!! How does that even happen the squares were all the same when laying in the pile together and I used the same seam allowence for all…. I’m just baffled….. and frusterated!! I would have to say any insight on this issue would be helpful and does it happen to more then just me? How do I avoid this frusteration is there anything I can do at all or is this one of those beginner things.

*sigh* Oh well, I guess as long as I keep moving forward…. I have decided to save my pennies for a new sewing machine as this $79 on sale Brother is about to take a crap on me and well it is not the best sewing machine for what I want…. so I will move on to bigger and better things and since my anniversary…. 8 years…. is coming up I think that it would be the perfect gift since I am not a jewlery type person. 🙂 Here’s to hoping!!
