So, I'm making my first-ever twin size quilt. I started it last winter with the idea that it would be for Joseph when he is old enough to move into a twin size bed (this also gave me lots of time since he was under one year old when I started it). Once I got the top pieced together, I decided to machine quilt it on my new sewing machine. Good idea, right? Wrong. The fabric I picked out for the backing is a nice, thin, denim type of material with all these cute bugs embroidered everywhere. It turns out those cute little bugs are not so cute. After sewing through one-to-many of those things, I messed up the timing and needle position of my machine. Lesson learned, and all remaining quilting will be done by hand. I just hope the machine can handle a few more bugs when it comes time to sew on the binding.
I do have a few small sewing projects in mind to start on when my machine is back from the repair shop. Mainly Christmas gifts and tote bags. I'll have to post a few pictures when I get them finished.
