The biggest news of the year is that my grown daughter has taken up sewing!!! Although she's implied loudly she's not going to make quilts, she has come very close. She'd rather sew fashions and bags etc, but she is taking a quilt class at Modern Domestic just to learn how to make the quilt blocks, oh no not to be used in a quilt! but just so she can use the quilt blocks themselves for other items such as her pillows, bags and whatnots. I have to say she is quite creative and in the few short months that she has been sewing she is already altering patterns to suit her modern eye.
We went to a beginner applique class together, As soon as she got home from class she added decorative stitches from her sewing machine to enhance the elements fused to her pillow. My pillow still sits unfinished...it has 3 balls and 1 stick fused to a single surface, I haven't even stitched around the raw edge yet. Oh by the way her pillow has a backside too named Clyde.
