Now, YESTERDAY was a different story. LOTS of excitement around here, and I am going to SHOW YOU!
Terry and I have been SO, SO, SO EXCITED about her new quilt for her Master Bedroom.
You may recall this quilt that she made for a friend several months ago:
It was very nice, and I love the colors in it, of course.
It was QUITE the challenge because she had to make her own templates for it. Then she had to figure out how many miles of fabric to buy for a King Size comforter. She bought a LOT of fabric! She said there is a ton of waste in this pattern to come up with the diamond blocks.
Terry finally got the quilt top put on the longarm last week. She came over three different times to work on it, and was able to get it done about 8:00 last night. We were jumping around like school girls because it turned out so GORGEOUS.
I told Terry she HAD to name it.
She said, "How about "Dazzling Diamonds"."
I said, "How about "Diamond Delight"?"
She liked Diamond Delight the best, so that is the name of this pretty new quilt.
HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE's Diamond Delight:
Before Terry came over to finish her quilt top, I made a new sleeve video. I have many Youtube videos out there, but the one I made on how to gather sleeve caps is the MOST popular and gets the most comments. Mostly, "THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!" comments.
So, now, several years later, thanks to Louise Cutting's tip, I know an even better way to ease the sleeve cap, so I made a new video. PLUS, my new camera takes much clearer videos, and you can see what I am doing so much better.
Here's my new sleeve "How To" video for those of you who sew:
For the lady who asked me about the Kai scissors I own and what size they are, I took a picture:
That's all for today. Be back soon.
