Not much sewing has been going on around here lately due to all the holiday festivities; however, I do plan on making more of a headway over the next couple of weeks on my Flower Patch Quilt Along wall hang using the fabrics shown above. I am making mine smaller then the required pattern because I want some smaller quilts to hang in my new quilting studio.
I am pretty excited. My studio is in the basement. It will actually take up the majority of the basement, but we never did anything to that area of the house when we moved in. The previous homeowners sort of finished it but they didn't completely finish it I would say. They painted some parts with white and gray paint, just primed other parts, and left bare wood on the remainder, so my plan is to finish what they started. I do think they were on the right track with what they were doing, but moved out before they completed it. My plan is to have it completed just after Labor Day so I can take on customers in the fall. I want them to have a nice area to come and drop their quilts off at. My plan is to take before and after pictures all along, so I can post my progress here on the blog. I am excited to see how it will turn out.
In the meantime, please don't forget to stop by the following blogs this week to see some of their great posts. I have been following along and I think everyone has done a really great job sharing more about themselves as well as different quilting tips and tricks.
