Did you know it takes FOREVER to make a quilt!

Sorry It's been so long! I have been sewing, a little bit a couple days a week.  At this pace I will NEVER get my WIPs  finished.  I feel like I am being punished having to complete a quilt before I start a new one. UGH!  But... I ....must..... perservere. So here's a little finish. 
This is one of the first projects I started when I decided I wanted to become a "quilter", about a year and a half ago.  Oh my have I learned a lot since then. 
I was REALLY bad at quilting when I first started.
Since then I purchased a 1/4 pressure foot, best $55. I've spent in a long time.
My cutting is way more accurate. I read somewhere that all of your rulers should be the same manufacturer, that sounds like a good idea to me. I'm going to work on that.
I'm still below average at FMQ. But I plan to practice, practice, practice! 
Have a happy day!


  1. Such a cute, happy little quilt!!

  2. Jenni, it's so cute! And your FMQ is way better than mine, I need to practice!

  3. Hey, good for you! One done still means one less to finish! It turned out cute. who is it for?
    Sounds like finishing was a real chore. This is supposed to be fun, remember?
    I think I need to buy a 1/4" foot cause I am still eyeballing.
