Hot pink on brown is reeeeaaaallly hard to photograph! Good quilting with meh quilting. Still getting semi random flat spots, but far fewer these days. #longarmquilting #itsagoodwaytostarttheweekend

Loading up an old quilt top (circa 2015? 2014?) and a scrappy back I made at that time. Planning to quilt the whole thing with hot pink thread. 🤞

“Organic” free form grid quilting. For when you love someone enough to make a quilt, but not enough to actually mark a 1/2” grid. 😂

I think I’ll work on this one next... let’s see how far I get!

The reason my design wall is empty. 😉 and I’m keeping this one, hence the maaaybe over sharing of late.
I started this two years ago, almost to the date. Right after we moved into our house I needed to sew, to keep the crazy at bay, but I couldn’t find any wips. So I dug around and came up with a bundle I won 4years ago (Best day ever by @amrosenthal won from @shabbyfabrics), and some low volumes, and just started. Went with a tutorial online (by @j_q_adams) which I then managed to butcher and make every mistake possible. It turned out muuuuch smaller than planned. So it sat.
A few weeks ago I started taking it apart to add more pieces to it, which I just kind of winged. Hence all the blank squares and the little off-grid arrows.
Now it is big enough for my giant husband. It’s 75 x 100. That’s “throw size” right? 😂

An empty design wall and still half a week of vacation. What’s a girl to do? 😉

This is a fun quilt to quilt!! This corner was an accident and a lesson in measuring. 😉 but quilting can turn an accident into a feature.

Speaking of choosing cats everyday... @frombolttobeauty 🤣

Adding sprinkles to an old wip in trying to push through! 🤞I can finish the top this weekend!!!

Finished this audiobook today. Rather fitting. 😉 a pretty good listen, not stay in the car after I get to work kind of good, but definitely made the trip seem shorter. Lots of laugh out loud moments, lots of very skilled wordplay. #maythefourthbewithyou

Trying the @warmfolk approach of pushing through the “meh” #letsseehowthisgoes #anyonewanttotakebets #startitis

You can just barely see the orange peel quilting, even with heavy editing. But it made me happy to do. 😻
