My Quilting Roller Coaster!

Sunday, December 29, 2013

While I've been terrible about the blog, I'm actually quite happy with my progress on quilting.  I was spending so much time focusing on the down parts of my quilting roller coaster that I'd all but discounted the ups and the soaring ride in general.

First, a big THANK YOU! and I LOVE YOU! to my hubby.  He surprised me with exactly what I wanted on Christmas morning.

The Birds of a Feather weekend quilting retreat with Virginia Longarm Network at the beautiful Founders Inn & Spa in Virginia Beach, VA.

Best. Christmas. Present. Ever!

It's exactly what I wanted & needed to keep my quilty juices flowing.  Let me know if you're going to be there.

I just finished putting the binding on my fall quilt.  I'll be stitching the back down this evening.  I haven't named it yet so I don't have the label.  I'd planned on a bottom left corner placement, so I'd better get thinking.

Pouring rain outside, so kitchen pic it is!

I'm determined to get back to my old normal posting schedule. Here's what I have planned for the coming week.

Motif Monday: I've got a nice block motif to share tomorrow.  You can see a sneak peek of it above.

Technique Tuesday: I'm going to share my favorite free motion quilting tips and what I've completed this year.

Wednesday: Happy New Year!  I'll share my goals for 2014.

Thoroughly Modern Thursday: I have a pattern for a quick win modern quilt I designed. 

Free Form Friday: I have time to decide on this one!

…with more to come.

As I sit here writing this post, I realize that I've really missed writing about my quilt journey.  There's something therapeutic about sharing my quilting hopes, successes & failures.

Don't forget to appreciate and reflect on all parts of your roller coaster!!!

Quilt. Create. Enjoy!

  1. It is fun to write about them and share them with the community isnt it? I find it keeps me focused too. When I know someone is willing to look at it, I'm more likely to do it! :)
