Little projects

It just always, always feels good to get something done.  Like this little thing made with a sweater from when my daughters were babies.


Or just a mini quilt to practice my free motion quilting.



Just getting something done, anything done, feels good.

Your quilting is amazing! I'm working on a very large project right now with the 1974 scraps I got from you and I'm sure I'll be yearning for a small project in the next couple days lol

Dana,

Both of your projects are fun & hardly seem "little." The quilting, especially, looks amazing!

Your free motion quilting needs no practice ;)

Dena said...

Oh your free motion looks so good!!! I'm so impressed with the stitching and how even it is. Good job.

Sandra said...

i SOOOO need to finishing SOMETHING! And soon! I'm working on a baby quilt - just 4 big squares for the top.... taking care of a newborn doesn't leave much time for sewing... gotta get back to it! ;-)

I am wondering what machine you use for your free motion quilting. I was using a Brother cs6000, but now I am using a Janome Threadbanger mechanical machine. It is taking some getting used to the noise a mechanical machine makes, but so far I am happy with how it quilts. I want to learn feather stitching.

I soooo agree! Goals are good and finishes are great :) Cute little projects to love.

your free-motion quilting looks amazing. my machine is only a year & a half old, but i have a feeling i bought the wrong kind since i can't do that.
