Rock on!


So, I decided last month that I was going to do try to participate in every TSNEM (Try Something New Every Month). This month’s challenge was quilting.  And while I have made quilts before, there was something I hadn’t yet tackled: hand quilting.

I didn’t set off knowing what I was going to make, but when I went to Jo-Ann and saw the Mario fabric, I knew I had to make something with it.

A full size quilt wasn’t going to happen, but a small project, like a pillowcase was certainly manageable. I did piece the fabric together with a sewing machine because I was NOT going to sit there for hours and hours doing that.

Once it was pieced together, I really didn’t know what to expect. The instructions for the rocking stitch looked easy enough, but I have done enough crafts to know that just because it looks easy doesn’t mean it actually IS easy.

But I’m happy to say that it went VERY smoothly. I can’t stand the feel of a thimble, so by the time I was doing quilting this piece, the tip of my finger hated me, but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t manage, LOL.

So, I would have to call this project a success and hope that the other projects I tackle have awesome results like this.

I make crafts. I geek out. Sometimes, I geek out about making crafts.
