Confessions of a Blogging Seamstress

Hmmm... sounds like the title of a television show. Oh well. So, it's been almost two weeks since I last posted. It's too hot to do anything around here. Or maybe my blogging inspiration just fizzled out. Either way, I'm sorry. I really hate it when someone whose blog I visit doesn't post for days and days (and no I am not pointing any fingers). Also, I decided I was tired of my current background/banner. What do think of the new one?

Now, I'm done with the blog-type confessions so now it's time for the seamstress-type confessions.


This is quilt I just finished for a lady at our church. It is made from her late father's shirts. Here's the confession part: she gave me the materials for it one year ago and for some reason I kept putting it off and putting it off. Then the guilt (and my father) stepped in. There, I've confessed. It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

And here it is.

The quilt I mean.

Finished.

The end.

This was delightful to read! It takes me forever to get around to finishing sewing projects too. Sometimes I will go on a sewing frenzy and make several items in a week. Then nothing for months. Even though projects call me, I ignore them.

What a good idea, (making quilts out of old shirts, I mean). I love the embroidery around the edges.

I just recently stumbled across your blog, and I love it. It's beautiful and very inspirational. Thanks!

The quilt is wonderful, Caroline. I love the blog! What template did you use?

Caroline said...

Thank you so much ladies for your kind words!

Emily, I just kept messing with the template until I was happy. I really don't know exactly what I did!

I love the scripture that you stitched along the outer edges of the quilt, Caroline! I am sure the lady you made this lovely quilt for will appreciate it and treasure it forever! I love the new background and header by the way. I'll send you an e-mail soon! ;)

The quilt turned out absolutely beautiful - your esthetic and heart are written all over it and sewn right into it.
