Thanks a million for many of you who welcomed me so warmly
to the quilting world! And thanks so much for great advice
on how the mini penguin quilt should be. Many of you suggested
that I use pink sashing for it and I think it's a fabulous idea!
I think what I'm going to do with this is to expand each block
until I come to the point where I am pretty satisfied. I still
have no idea how big it will be, but it should become a nice wall hanging.
I still need to figure out what I need in order to do machine-quilting.
It seems like I need a "walking foot"..? I have a standard
Singer sewing machine, but it didn't come with a walking foot,
so I am assuming I will need to buy the foot to attach to my sewing machine.
I saw AmandaJean's this nice free motion quilting video.
Oh my! It really fired me up. I WANT TO DO THAT!!!
Quilting is fun. I already have a couple of ideas for my
next quilts although I don't even know when I can finish
this penguin one, but I know I want to finish this first!
I wish I could spend a lot more time sewing & blogging.
Those are seriously some of my favorite things to do.
I've been super busy with studying, but I am so glad
I got to sew a little yesterday and slightly spiffy up
this blog. ( the right side bar organized;) )
I have looots of cool links today again!!
