Cuddle Quilt Winner

Have you ever seen these boxes at the fabric store?  I was fortunate enough to win one at Minnesota Contemporary Quilter's!  How lucky am I?!?

I really have to thank the person who brought this prize.  Minnesota winters can get a little chilly so when I stop to watch tv I always wrap up in a blanket.  This is so soft and cuddly and warm!  I love it!

Half done.
Rows look fairly straight.
Still needs binding but isn't it a great size!
If you need me, I'll be cleaning up fuzz for the next few days.  So worth it!

Finished! Well almost...

Just wanted to show the photos of my finished quilt.  Well almost finished, still need to bind the edges and add a label but since I started this in 2012, I'm very excited to be done.

Right now I am rearranging my sewing room.  Trying to make it more user friendly.  I have a new serger and needed a space for it.  I saw a sewing room on YouTube which inspired me to make some changes.  I've been pinning ideas on Pinterest for a week and decided to jump right in and start the charge.  Right now it looks like a sewing explosion happened in my house but once it's finished I think it will all play together nicely.
I've designated these bins for projects in process.  Need to make labels. Some are long term projects, like my Dear Jane quilt.

This quilt is the result of two classes on Craftsy.  One is free, Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 taught by Amy Gibson.  The second I paid for, How to quilt a Sampler taught by Leah Day.  Both were excellent classes.  I have one more sampler quilt to finish so I'm planning to quilt it next while it is fresh in my mind.

Not the best lighting for these but I think you get the idea.

Next quilt and new clothes

Beginning to make clothes again.  I used to sew a lot of clothing.  I'm having fun working on something different now and than.  This is going to be a dress for my daughter.

I am also working on my next quilt on the longarm.  This is from another Craftsy class.  Well, really from two classes.  The quilt itself is the Craftsy Block of the month 2012.  They added a class taught by Leah Day on how to quilt a sampler and used this quilt for her class.  She actually teaches how to quilt on a traditional sewing machine.  Very good class, I am learning a lot as always, so much to learn and so little time.  I have half of the blocks finished now.  Here are a few of my favorites.

I took a serger class today, it was fun.  This will help finish those seams for my daughter's dress.
