Itching to be Stitching

It’s time to enjoy the Spring 2013 Bloggers’ Quilt Festival, sponsored by Amy’s Creative Side. Click on the button in the sidebar to see other participating blogs.

I very, very rarely participate in a BOM project, be it one of my own or some other designer’s. But last year I just couldn’t resist working on the BOM project I offered on my website for 2012: Itching to be Stitching. If you know anything about me, then you already know my first love in quilting is for applique projects. That’s what I design, and that’s what I like to sew. And I normally do hand applique at that.  But I really didn’t feel I had the time to set aside to hand applique this project, so I opted for sewing it on the machine. And found I really did enjoy working on the machine… what satisfaction to get it done fast! 🙂

Finished size: 44 x 55″

My own sewing tools served as inspiration for most of the designs!

One of the things I enjoyed a lot about both designing and sewing this wall hanging was working with wording. So I now find myself incorporating sayings in more and more of my designs!

    Lovely work! It’s quilts like this that make me wish I had the patience for appliqué.

    Oh how clever! I’m doing a paper pieced sewing-themed BOM, and can’t wait to have a sewing wall hanging for my sewing area!
