UFO Sunday: More quilting...

"People who don't make time for happiness have no one to blame but themselves." This quote/comment from Kristy on my recent post just made my day, and I thought I'd share it with you.  I was a bit down in the dumps about how critical some people can be about my quilting hobby.  I think this is one of the best ways to see things.  Thanks to her and others for the nice words that totally lifted me up!

I'm also posting today over at Leah's UFO Sunday, trying to get a few more quilts finished!!

Over the week-end, I was able to finish quilting my "Low Volume" quilt!  Yea!  I still struggle with how to keep the quilting design consistent in scale, but I guess that's just going to take practice...

I also got some thread in the mail!  I ordered it directly from Isacord Thread Company, and was surprised to see it delivered just a few days later!  WOW!  Thanks to my color card, it's the perfect match to my "Modern Granny" Quilt.  I hope to get that quilted this week, and to finish binding the Low Volume Quilt.

I'm afraid I DID make a major cutting error with my binary code curtains and am currently trying to figure out how to redesign it.  Luckily it wasn't a huge error, but it'll change the layout.  My son really doesn't car too much, thankfully, as the main design it still the same.

Once my granny quilt is done, I'll be able to start pin basting 2 more quilts.  I only have enough pins for 2, which forces me to DO them!


  1. I love that quote, I may have to borrow it!

  2. I love the brown quilt, it is so restful to the eye and the quilting pattern looks great, all loopey.

  3. Kristy is wise. I love the quilting you've done on the low-volume quilt.

  4. Thanks Becki! Your post just made my day! And I love your low volume quilt, I think my next few projects will be low volume or semi- low. I just love the soothing look.

  5. I love the quote too! And here's another for your critical 'friends' - "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind" (dr. seuss) I love your quilting too!

  6. Good for you, shaking off the negativity and moving forward! I choose to keep those unhappy people at arm's length, generally they find another unhappy person and seem to be "happy" being unhappy together. Love your projects!
