A New Project



I haven't started a new project in several months. I worked a bit on one of the T-shirt quilts this past week, but today I felt like working on something new. I've wanted to work on a quilt for my godchild. Possibly, I can finish it for the holidays. She turned sixteen this year so I thought the Sassy Sixteen quilt would be appropriate. I have a fat quarter bundle of April Cornell's Maypole fabric line. The colors are wonderful. This morning I was able to cut out the quilt. I even began sewing the blocks. It just felt good to work on whatever I felt like sewing. This afternoon and evening, I worked on hand sewing binding while watching football. I still have three quilts that need the handwork on the binding finished. One is our Christmas quilt. One is a Christmas gift. The last one is possibly for a nephew's new baby.

A new quilt magazine arrived in the mail today. I love quilting magazines. I'm heading upstairs to bed to savor this issue of Quilter's Home.

Let us all know how "Sassy Sixteen" turns out. Looks like a great way to use up scraps. Glad to hear you're up and having enough energy to sew.

I need to be more like you and work on what makes me feel good. I did a Sassy Sixteen this summer. It is being quilted now.

Oh, Becky! Send your binding hand work to me! Whip stitching binding is one of my very favorite parts of quiltmaking! No kidding! I put some logs on the fire, crank up my iPod (Linda Ronstadt), and melt into my project!

Hey you got a comment from Mark Lipinski! Can't wait to see your Maypole quilt! It is going to be a perfect quilt for the dead of winter because that fabric line is so cheerful and "springy".

How is Sassy Sixteen coming along?
