Dancing with your Sewing Machine

Image
Do you dance with your sewing machine?  No, not actually picking it up and dancing, which I'm sure we have all done. I'm talking about when you sit down to begin sewing and someone walks in your sewing room and needs you!!! 
MOM! there's a pig stuck in the fence!  MOM! timmy fell in the well (hopefully you get that one) 
Just as you come back another thing pulls you away, this type of dance is what I'm talking about, back and forth and back and forth Again. There are so many reasons that we get pulled away from our quilting..... Lately these little suckers have been the main reason! Now I love my pigs but they love to get out. To get them back in requires time, patience and sometime $$$. Fencing is not cheap, so far electric fence has been the best way to go, but we were trying to be kind and put up wire fencing. One piglet did get stuck and she did not make it. (Not so Kind)  Currently they are all running a muck. Thank goodness we live in the middle of nowhere. Whic…

Wayland's Room

Image
 Do you have a junk room?  We have currently been in Arkansas for 2 years. We have been renovating our house for the whole time, depending on just how important it was to get finished. For example our bedrooms were first. We had our room and the boys shared a room. At one point the room above was going to be an office. Now our "office" area in in my sewing room, which I don't mind at all. So we kept stacking stuff that had no place to go yet, because of our renovating. So, that is how our junk room was formed. As time went on and Wayland began to get older, we realized he needed his own space. At our house in Texas they both had their own rooms. So, months and months ago I decided that this room would become his room. He was very excited and I was very overwhelmed. Once I was determined to get his room together, it took about 3 days to completely clean it out. The hardest part was figuring out what to do with the stuff that does not have a home. First I cleaned out the t…

What is going on at Sew Darn Cute Quilting....

I have been busy but not so much in a quilting kinda way. It seems that the summer time brings so many opportunities to get outside and enjoy life outdoors for a change. It has been refreshing to escape from my quilting demands for a bit and work on my quilts for a change. Here are a few other things that have been keeping me busy.
 Hanging out with my guys has been at the top of my list. Wyatt has a new bow and has been practicing everyday. He also wants to take an Archery Class.  This mini water fall was on the way to pick up a new puppy for my mom.  Here she is her name is Rose. She is a Great Pyrenees.  Wyatt found my silver fabric and turned into the Silver Bandit. Meanwhile...  Outside we have some big things happening in the garden.
 Mostly Melons, Potatoes, Squash and Tomatoes
 So here it is my Show Quilt!!!  Not much to look at here but I promise progress is being made. This quilt is on the down low and will not be revealed until it is hanging at a quilt show.  I plan on ent…

Feathered Wreath

Image
Hello there, It's been a while....
This quilt had plenty of open space for quilting.  I chose feathered wreaths, swirls and dot to dot quilting.
Thread - Signature (Black & Mustard) Batting - Hobbs 80/20
I used the Black thread for Stitching in the Ditch and the Mustard thread to decorate.
Here it is all quilted and ready to mail back home.


Backside


This quilt would be considered a Mid-Custom Quilt. I love this type of quilting. It makes the piecing pop but also can be quilted somewhat fast.

What made you become a quilter?

A question that we rarely ask ourselves as quilters and longarm quilters. For me, I just began quilting and went full speed ahead. It was like I was being driven by a locomotive and there was no stopping me. Everyday trying to improve upon what was done yesterday. The ideas of quilts going around in my head are never ending. Also quilting for me it is an art not just a skill. I feel that with each quilt I'm able to express myself onto the fabric, in ways I've never done before.
Here are a few examples:
The Ombre Effect This quilt is one of my favorites. In each square I came up with a different design that used my rulers. While using straight lines in every block as well as curved lines.


Coloring Quilts This was a very free motion quilt.
My client told me to quilt anything I wanted. Then she was going to paint it.

Birde My very first Full Custom quilt. The quilt definitely did all the talking on this one.
