What an accident you had quilting or sewing? I can’t believe I teeny tiny cut my finger with the rotary blade. .
So glad a had a quick bandaid because I wanted to finish sewing my binding on without getting blood on the quilt! .
What have you learned from your mishaps? I was cutting backwards... don’t do. I have rarely cut myself in the sewing room! What about you? What lessons have you learned from your mishaps. .
Another time I hurt myself quilting but didn’t quite realize it for awhile was keeping the space heater a little too close to my leg. I know later in the day a pattern on my shin. I couldn’t figure it out then I realized it’s the hexagon pattern of my space heater. So I don’t keep the space heater so close anymore. Lesson learned. .
Hope you guys are toasty warm out there wrapped in a quilt. ❌⭕️❌⭕️, Deanna
Who’s ideal was it to not post photos until after the quilt maker picked up the quilt(s)?! Ya, that is so not gonna work! Anyway, here is a couple photos of Georgia’s super cool Turtle quilt! #quilting#machinequilting#longarmquilting
*WORK IN PROGRESS*
Sometimes I miss a stain or a tear on a garment while foraging. If it’s irreparable it goes onto a “what do I do with this” pile, especially if it’s a lovely silk or linen that I can’t bear to just chuck out.
I’ve gotten back into sewing recently so I thought why not recycle those “no hoper clothes” into a pram quilt for my little one for winter. Perfect patchwork, although beautiful and the product of talent and patience, is not really my thing so I’ve gone for a more organic, literally pieced together look. I’ve used grey and khaki linen, thick weave cotton and viscose and I’m happy with the results so far! Watch this space for progress updates!!! .
