20150109 - Got the sewing machine out!

Today I went to the adult education class and brought my machine and fabric for a Quilts for Kids disappearing nine-patch and some charm squares.

So I actually sewed today!

First I put together some random scrappy four patches.  I had to remember where to put the needle to get quarter inch seams. One of the secrets to good quilts is good colors and fabric.  I just grabbed what I had, guess I should have been more particular!

Then I had enough nerve to start on the Quilts for Kids fabric I had cut at their working day a while back.  In real life the center fabric seems very close to the darker fabric, it's nice to see in the photo that there is a good contrast there.

My friend is here from out of town, we are having a nice time doing things together and dreaming...  We went to Home Depot and found this terrific back splash for a dream kitchen.


  1. I've made Quilts for Kids too. Your fabric choices look lovely. I have been wanting to add a back splash to the kitchen - something quilty would be nice. I really like that pattern.

    1. Thank you for coming by! I've done a little more sewing on my QFK project - nothing more on the kitchen yet. I did find a photo that illustrates the layout I'm interested in trying - but only for part of the kitchen. : )
