It’s been a while…

I’ve been in a funk for the last few months – I’m attributing it to the overwhelm that comes with moving. I haven’t done much sewing & quilting since my last post in early November so there hasn’t been much to share…until now.

I knew I needed to spend some quality time in my sewing room to relax and stop obsessing over every little moving detail so I broke into my Vintage Holiday charm packs and followed Jenny Doan’s tutorial for charms on point. It’s a pretty neat trick and I love the result.

Here are a few in process shots and the finished quilt:

Believe it or not, I STILL haven’t finished the commissioned memory quilt for my neighbor (uuuuuuugh!) that monster keeps haunting me!!! I think my issue is I don’t like the final size cuz it’s MUCH longer than it is wider (74×106). I keep telling myself to just push through and finish but the other voice says “fix it”…so I’m stuck until I decide what I’m going to do.

That’s all I have for now…

I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessed and Happy New Year 🙂

  1. I sympathize – sometimes it’s hard to get yourself into the sewing mojo, but once back into the groove, you feel so much better. Glad you got into your sewing room & love the quilt! On the Commission Quilt, how would it look taking one of the inner rows & putting it on the back? I love the look of the top & bottom rows to ‘frame’ it. Merry Christmas to you & your family & prayers for a Blessed New Year!

    1. THANK YOU for that suggestion on the commission quilt…I had not even thought of doing that!! I was trying to figure out which rows could have some length shaved off but moving a whole row to the back just might be the answer 🙂 We’re planning our move for late January but hubby refuses to PICK A DATE so I feel like I’m in limbo 😦 Thanks again for your input, that really helps!

      1. Sometimes it just takes stepping back or having a fresh set of eyes & looking at the ‘big picture.’ Maybe taking row 2 or 3 out? Thank you for the link to the On Point video. Can’t wait to try it!
