See the Sew Along Quilt Top

It has been awhile since I’ve posted.  My old laptop and Windows 10 update fought and Windows won, so I had to get a new laptop and luckily I have a son close by who resurrected important things on the new one and has the old one to try to recover a few things – like my address book!

In the meantime, I have been busy working a seasonal part-time job with a school photography company and getting myself organized yet again in the sewing rooms!  I have a number of quilts cut out for sewing this winter and discovered a tote full of UFOs I went through to decide which I really will finish this year – 2016 – and put the rest aside to donate.

20160821_142257  Wish me luck!  I have already taken out one box and completed that top.  It was a quilt along, something new for me, and a modern design, also new for me.  I generally lean toward traditional patterns, but wanted to step outside my comfort zone and give it a try.  I think it turned out pretty, but it isn’t me!  One thing about modern designs, there is more background than “quilt” blocks – so more thought will go into the quilting.  This good size quilt would fit a queen size mattress, I think.  I didn’t measure it when it was done, but it is big.  Snowflake Shimmer was designed by Quilting Jetgirl who led the quilt along.  Check out her website for some very awesome blogs and photos and information –                              20160829_174028
