Being that I am a new blogger, I wasn't really sure where to look. I used trusty ole Google Search to find this link up, and I'm really excited to share!
I am found this link up on Weekend Doings. I'm already loving her blog, however, the link up I found via Weekend Doings, was already closed. But Plum and June has another one going...so YAY! My excitement is continuing!
The Link Up: A recent sewing/quilt project.
Now, the quilt pictured below, was made several months ago, but I just love it so much, and I really haven't had a chance to show it off. It was a gift for my mom and also...my first ever "real" quilt. I did make some smaller rag quilts for my nieces, but this was my first full blown quilt. I don't really know that much about sewing not to mention quilting, I just knew what I wanted it to look like. I was going for a more modern look. I didn't follow any tutorials. I just basically pieced together and went for it.
(just in case you haven't heard, I am seriously lacking in the patience department and quilts just take more patience than I have), but after looking at this quilt again, I really want to do another one. This time, for keeps. :)
In hind sight, this was a SUPER simple quilt. I just pieced together the front, did a layer of batting, pieced together the back (not totally perfect, but you can't tell from here), did a wavy sewing pattern across, and then did a black edge.
These pictures were snapped really quickly on my iPhone before we packed up and left for an 8.5 hour road trip, so no judging allowed! ;) jk jk.
To finish up and in honor of the newest addition to the list of blogs I follow, I would like to share a photo from my "Weekend Doings".
I was asked to do a photo booth for a non-profit that one of my college friends works for. I haven't done a photo booth before, but I am so excited to do it! I, for the first time, was playing with EOS Utility to experiment with the monitor feed I could get on my macbook.
In the meantime, my husband and dogs were snuggling on the couch.
I took some test shots of them, and I just couldn't resist sharing this one. :)
Now, I know that I have posted pictures of our newest puppy, Molly. For those of you who don't know, I also have another adorable dog named Grizzabella aka Grizzy. She is about full grown already, and still smaller than our 10 week old Molly.
Now that you've ooed and awed, I can't wait to check out some of the other sewing/quilt projects from the link up!
Have a wonderful Monday!
