Not Too Bad

Hello!!! Well the quilt top is coming along. Thank you for all your encouraging words!!! It's going pretty good, I did cut the last piece of fabric wrong : ( but since it's a random pieced quilt I substituted and when all is said and done...hubby won't even notice! The new sewing machine sews like a dream! Sooo much better than the ones of 30 years ago, when I learned to sew!

(Click to enlarge)
I really like the fabrics and the colors. This quilt will brighten the place up a bit : )
I will post the finished top in the next couple of days. My 100th post is coming up and I need to work on a giveaway. Still thinking on that one : ) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Not sure what we are doing yet.
Hugs!
Kim

I'm totally jealous! I've always wanted to make a quilt. I'm not brave enough to try it yet though. Yours looks really nice. Good luck with it all.

Hi Kim,
Good for you...you are doing it!!My sewing machine is covered with clean laundry to iron!!
No plans here this weekend here. Still pricing items and still need to clean the house...
No good sales to go to either.
Warmly.

It looks good so far. Did the fabric package come with directions? Maybe I should find something nice and small to start with.

take care,
Dawn

Hi Kim, I got a new sewing machine too and have yet had time to really "play" with it. My old machine was almost 40 years old. Yikes!! The new machine sews so quietly. :)
