I’ve heard someone describe themselves recently as having an addictive personality. That fits me to a T. I’ve had many obsessions come and go in my life over the years. I just may have found a new one 😉
I’ve always thought quilting seemed fun. But I always figured it was tedious and took forever and would be frustrating. I don’t have any sewing skills. I’ve had a sewing machine for years and years but have rarely used it. As you know, I’ve been hooked on Pinterest lately. Mostly I look for ideas to organize or work on my home. I stumbled across the blog of a quilter who has the most gorgeous home and her quilts inspired me to give it a whirl.
I’m loving all the fun happy bright quilts on Pinterest. I adore navy’s right now so my color scheme revolved around including navy. I found an inspiration quilt and then just made up the squares using strips. I always figured quilting took forever so I was surprised by how quickly a quilt can come together. This is snuggle quilt so it’s a bit smaller than a twin. I gave this one to Kir and now I’ve got two boys waiting for theirs. Hoping I don’t lose interest before I finish them 😉
I machine quilted using a zig zag stitch. I just played around with the settings until I liked what I saw.
Not gonna lie… I was pretty impressed with myself on this one! Don’t inspect the stitching too closely though… 😉
