Friday I was at whits end and decided to take a mental health day. I work from home and am my own boss but RARELY do I even just take a day off….Friday I gave in.
I grabbed my shirts and come solids and started playing. I sewed blocks on Friday and sewed them into this on Saturday.
It was so fun!! If I get enough requests, I will do a little tutorial….nothing fancy but enough information that you can make your own. I think this would be so fun for a kid quilt or a picnic quilt. I don’t have it quilted. Right now I am debating whether I want to put it on my Grand Quilter or wait for the new APQS machine to come.
Someone asked yesterday why I was selling mine and getting a new machine. Well…my old machine was good but I think I am ready for an upgrade. A new machine will be faster and give me more options. Kelli and I are starting to do bigger projects and I want to do fancier work. When I got my first machine, I was happy and content with what it could do. At this point I think I have met this machine’s potential and want more.
I loved working on this quilt top….it was so relaxing and fun to play with the placement of the squares.
