Coffee, please

It takes longer to get some coffee ready
than a mug rug finished.
Do you really think a mug rug must be rectangular?
Let´s say its a coaster then.

Cheering up

I´m not ready to work with beige & browns long enough to complete a bed quilt.
Need some color to cheer me up. 
A rainbow is needed to cheer me up right now.

I´ll be going back to browns and beige pretty soon, I hope, and get the bed quilt ready before Christmas.


An ambicious project...

... considering I´m a totally non skilled begginer.

It may look extra simple, obvious and uninteresting to most of you. However, there seems to be nothing either simple, obvious or easy about it to me! And I´m quite interested to find out how far I can go.

I´ve started getting pieces cut and sewn together yesterday evening. The challenge consists in having the quilt ready before the year ends mostly. 

How long do I have? 


A Christmas Miracle

The season made me get back to work and motivated me to improove the quality of my work. I´ve decided to master free motion quilting once and for all. It had always both fascinated and scared me.

I used to cheat but I knew I would, someday, do better than this.


I´ve watched videos posted by wondelful quilters. Once again I thank the generous people who share their expertise with curious beginners like myself. What a help! 

I´ve got two needles broken, tangled threads, many sections to undo but didn´t give it up. I was determined to master it. Now I can say I´m on the way to accomplishing this goal in the near future. 
Well, it may take me longer.
The important thing is: I´m having fun doing it.

This was my first trial. Doesn´t look good but it´s taught me quite a bit. 
 I´ve realized the coloured stripes should have been centered to start with,
although this has nothing to do with free motion quilting.

This second one has offered me quite a bit of free motion quilting practice.

Not perfect yet but it will look real good on my kitchen table. 

And last but not least a Christmasy piece. 

I tell you: I´ll get there!
Can´t do without it anymore!
