Let It Snow!

Snowmen, FMQ, KennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

Are YOU dreaming of a white Christmas? It’s just days away, and no snow in sight…

I’m not complaining…

Snowmen, FMQ, KennedyI’m content with a little quilted snow….it’s so much easier to shovel!

I used a little Iris metallic thread to add the glittery look to the large snowballs in this little quilt.  It’s the perfect amount of sparkle…

How Long Does it Take to Quilt a Quilt?

Double Wedding Ring QuiltGood Morning, Quilters!

As Quilters, what is the most common thing we are asked??–How long did it take you to make that?

I never have an answer…do YOU?

For Claire and Andy’s wedding quilt–a queen size, I did carefully account for all the time it took to quilt it…

It took 25 hours to quilt!–on a domestic sewing machine… (I estimated it would take 40 hours so I was happy with 25…)

The first 10 hours was on stabilizing and stitching in the ditch–we’ll take more about that next week!

What about YOU?  Have you ever added up the hours (we won’t even talk about dollars!)…to make a quilt?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Also, tell us if you are quilting on a domestic sewing machine, a mid-arm sewing machine or a long arm.

Signed,

Still Basking in Quilt-Finish-Virtue,

Double Wedding Ring Quilting, LKennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

This week I’m focused…(A noteworthy event!)

I am working on my daughter’s wedding quilt…(She’s been married for over a year!)

My vow…no more Tuesday Tutorials, pin cushions, or vase quilts until this is quilt, bound and mailed!

I doodled several options HERE and decided on this version.

I am soooo happy to have extra harp space under my BERNINA 770 and I LOVE the huge bobbin! WeddingRing.FMQ.LKennedy003So if no one asks me to make dinner, dust or go to the movies, I may have a Tuesday Tutorial!???

What are YOU focused on this weekend?

We’d LOVE to hear!
