catching up on some quilting.

I’m in the mood to catch up on some quilting.

First on the agenda is to finish up this sessoms sample. There’s not much of a plan other than feathery-ish goodness in the border and heavier stuff in the background so the x’s pop. I’m just gonna play around with it. The added treat is my new and super sticky pair of gloves. Why didn’t I replace them sooner?


Happy weekend quilting!!

sessoms blast from the past.

With the giveaway I have going on, I thought I’d take a quick trip back to the (almost) very beginning of my Sessoms throw. Other than some sketches and a few lone blocks, it all started with this sample. Oh how things have changed!

At the time, I remember being drawn to the idea of mixing warm shirtings with bright, contemporary prints, which I still think is a fun juxtaposition. I also went a little nuts with skinny borders, partly for looks, and partly because I was running out of fabric.

And I’m embarrassed that the top still isn’t quilted! Yikes. Usually I’m not this bad since I enjoy the quilting so much. I can’t remember what lured me away, but now that she’s out, I want to put her to use. I should get on it. I’ve been wanting something new on my bed.


If you haven’t already, leave a comment on Monday’s post by midnight tomorrow to win some fabulous fabric and a copy of the pattern.
