It’s been quite some time since I have sat down at my sewing machine and quilted anything. Probably years, in fact. A couple of weeks ago, though, I spent a day visiting a couple of local quilt shops with my friends Lois and Blogless Sharon. Turns out, that was all I needed to kick-start my quilting mojo.
I bought this adorable little cupcake potholder kit and I’ve already made it. It didn’t take long, maybe just under 2 hours, and it’s pretty cute. I had to find my supplies and it took a while to remember how to use my walking foot but once I got going I found that I really enjoyed myself.
It’s going off in a care package to Hannah this week and I’m already working on my next quilting project. Remember this jelly roll?
Those strips have now been sewn into a quilt top and I got a beautiful dark blue bali print to use for the borders, backing and binding.
I’m still a fervent knitter and occasional spinner but it sure feels good to quilt again.
