|Favorite fabric and this is used daily,|
|Such a fun sweet quilt to make and I tried something new with this one!|
Here is a little about me.
I am married to a very supportive man, we have two teens. I am struggling with the thought of empty nest syndrome. My youngest is headed into her final year in High school. What to do with both kids are gone off to college...yikes!!
I have one Fur baby named Guinness...he is in some of my posts. He is just about the sweetest dog I have ever had. He loves to go with me on some of the photo shoots.
I have been quilting for about a year and a half. I really enjoy finding new quilt shops in my travels...Thank goodness for smart phones! I am pretty much self taught..You tube, quilting blogs and asking questions is how I have learned. I have only taken one quilting class, my thoughts are I would rather spend the money on fabric!
I love just about everything about quilting...shopping, cutting, piecing, finishing the quilt, and giving it away. I also really love to learn new things and different techniques and when I do I like to share them with you all.
Blogging tips- Google, google, google....if you don't know how to do something...Google it and there is sure to be a video or some info on how to do it. Also Write about what you like and are interested in.
Quilting tips- 1/4 inch seam.....I did not really realize how important this was with my first quilt. Now I do and it makes my quilting life much easier and I am much happier!
One of my favorite tools is the Creative grids Stripology ruler. I learned about this at the one quilting class that I took and the instructor called it Lucy....because everyone LOVES Lucy. So I now call this ruler Lucy, LOL.
This ruler makes cutting straight strips from my yards super easy! I do truly love this tool and it was featured here at the Fat Quarter shop there is also a great video on how to use it.
A few fun facts about me.
- I enjoy Kickboxing...I have been doing this for about 4 months now and I am sore after every class, but it is fun and I like the results.
- I have another blog for my card making (another fun hobby) and I am on a design team.
-Netflix is a great friend to have in your quilting space, it is a great way to catch up on show while quilting.
-I do not eat much sugar...gave it up about 3 years ago and do not really miss it.
-I Love watching movies over and over again but, have only read two books twice..once by accident ( did not remember that I read it) and the 2nd book because I really liked it.
-Oh....I think I have the messiest sewing room on the plant! I would rather sew and create than clean.
Well...enough about me...Thanks for stopping by.
I am going to leave you with a question....when you sew do you watch Netflix?...If so what do you watch...I need new shows, LOL!!
Until I see you again...Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide
