Finished Quilt


Dale bought me a sewing machine last February for my birthday because I was all excited to teach myself how to quilt! For those of you who don't remember that far back, here's the last post I did about that quilt. You'll notice is was posted to the the blog May 28, 2008, almost a year ago! Ridiculous! I blame all the cute crafty blogs out there that got me distracted with purses, dresses, curtains, and everything else that's out there. So I pulled out this old pile of rags and finished machine quilting it, and finished the binding yesterday. I loved this experience. I realize how much I've learned about sewing in the last year, and I honestly can't wait to make another quilt. And this time I'll finish it a little faster, I hope. There are so many mistakes that I never want anyone to actually look too closely, but it has been a great learning experience for me. I've got my next quilt picked out, so let's all keep our fingers crossed.

And who knows when I'll actually start it, since I've now sentenced myself to make 5 crafted items for friends for the Pay It Forward Giveaway... Speaking of, here's the list that I have of people who are getting a crafted item from me and in return will be crafting for 5 others!
1. Brittany
2. Jenny
3. Kim
4. Lauren
5. ???
Yes, you see correctly! I have one last open spot if anyone is interested. Or else, I get off the hook, and only have to do four! Check it out here for the Pay It Forward details if you'd like to be my number 5! Leave a comment on this post, or the Giveaway post letting me know you want to be a part of our crafting MOVEMENT!!!

***Number 5 spot has been filled by the Mabbs! Thanks guys! If you want to participate, start your own and maybe it'll come back around! Pay It Forwards are good like that...

Hey Kim. Great job on the quilt. How did you machine quilt it? So you have a self quilting machine? If so... I am so jealous! And as for me I am tired of the rain. I want sunshine non stop for the next 6 months.

Jenny said...

Thanks for the compliments guys! And Brittany, no, I don't have a self quilting machine. They have those? I could have used one. That was the most tedious part, sewing all those lines across the whole thing...
