Sewing Confrontations: Final Linkup and Posts 5 & 6!

Whew - November flew by! Can you believe it's almost December already? And, in that vein... did you try anything new and/or work on a previously-existing-but-needed-some-tweaking sewing skill this November? (scroll down to the bottom for the linkup!)


Confrontations can be scary, but in this case, not... right? :)


Today is a double posting! The first comes from my friend Kate who blogs at Swim, Bike, Quilt - I'm constantly enamored by her quilty creations, AND she does an amazing job with 100 Quilts for Kids every year! *Check out her post here on her confrontation, sewing with knits.

The second post comes from my real life friend from the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild, Kristina, of Ornamental Confectionary. Kristina quilts, bakes and sews up beautiful clothes - *you can see her post on making pants her (part 1)!
(*links will be updated later today, when I get home from work :))

Please visit these ladies and let them know your thoughts on their confrontations!

**I hope you enjoyed reading about the Sewing Confrontations of my bloggy friends! If you want to see what others have written about, click here for the full listing.** Thanks so much to them for all the work they did, and for the fantastic posts they wrote up!

P.S. Small update on my own challenge - my Luigi block and cutting accurately - I think I need to take Rebecca's advice on the 1/4th seam into closer consideration because the main problem I'm having is lining up all of those crazy seams.


I'm no perfectionist but some of them are way off, so I'm using my best friend (the seam ripper, of course) and will be back with a finish nearer to Christmas! I am SO SURE that all of my little 1.5" blocks are the right size, so I guess that I accomplished my goal. I've also been taking greater care with a new quilt I've been working on. So, I'm happy :). -endrant-

------------------------------------------------------
Now its your turn! The linky will close on December 5, which is when I'll pick a random winner!




Good luck!! I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone has accomplished this month!
