Journey Of A Quilt: Part 1

I finally got a day off from work

and I designated part of the day "ME" time.

I sat down in front of my sewing machine

and went to work on this:

However, when I opened up the quilt top,

I just wasn't satisfied with the way that it looked.

Something just wasn't right,

so I took the quilt top outside to get

a fresh look at it.

I decided that I wanted the quilt to be a little bit longer.

I  added  a 5" strip of fabric to the top and bottom of the quilt.

Later on that evening,

I sat down to attempt the quilting.

Shortly after I started,

I looked up and noticed that my Little Person had joined me.

When it was his bed time,

he sent reinforcements to keep me company.

The quilting is done.

The binding is done.

I just need to go outside and take a picture of the quilt.

(Terrible right?)

Until Next Time... Happy Quilting!


  1. Reinforcements are good!! We have Army dude soldiers at our house--as Ayden says!!

    Quilt looks amazing and that ruler looks handy--how were you using it in particular?

  2. Ah, I love the little men to keep you company. I normally get dragons :)

    The quilt looks awesome, even with a picture inside :)

  3. I love the combination of fabrics! Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

  4. Congrats on finishing your zigzag quilt, it looks great. I still have not even touched mine...someday I :)

  5. looks good! i just finished my own quilt from the tutorial/pattern that you posted over at moda bakeshop. thought that you might like to see a picture! thanks!

  6. that's looking great. glad you found some time off...take care of yourself :)

  7. Lovely quilt Little Lady! You made it sounds easy. The little man reminds of my DS when he was that little. He loves Legos even now - Hugs Nat

  8. I have a few reinforcements hanging in my room too. The quilt looks great! The fabrics are perfect. Look forward to seeing it done.

  9. looks to be turning out great! Love your helper and reinforcements. .... What Bernina do you have and is it your favorite ever... ie, would you buy the same thing again. I have an older model and it is starting to surge and drag when I am quilting so I am starting my research.

  10. I love it! I love sewing and sewing and sewing and then looking up to see that multiple trains, firefighter "guys" and army "guys" are now keeping me company.

  11. So cute, Stefanie! Love your helpers!!
