Crazy. week.

This week, I'm moving out (Saturday!), getting used to a temporary full time schedule, and oh, I have a demo lesson tomorrow that I found out about today. No big deal. Oh, and, ya know, the wedding is 3.5 weeks away.

I actually got a lot of sewing done this week but I can't show that quite yet! It's a Christmas gift :)However, I also FINALLY finished a t-shirt quilt for my best friend and maid of honor, Julie!


She gave me these shirts from high school a year ago (it's been a few years since high school!!) and we also had gone to pick out fabric then. I finally decided to just work on it once a lot of the wedding crafts were finished this summer! She wanted straight line quilting and I was happy to oblige, especially because my cheap FMQ foot broke again (I really just need a machine that can handle all my crazy quilting, haha - working on it). For those who will ask, I do NOT use stabilizer on my T-shirt quilts - I like them soft!

 
I'm in love with how cool the lines look! They weren't measured to be a certain distance apart.

Glad to be moving, but it's sad packing up all of my (almost) 23 years. It's especially sad packing up my quilting stuff because I LOVE monopolizing the dining room!

More soon.

  2. Are you moving very far? I was devastated when my DD left home to get married and she only moved a couple of miles away! That looks like a lovely quilt - I'm sure your friend will love it.
