Sewing for Me in March – Week #1
As I understood it, the aim of this challenge is to take time to do some selfish sewing.
For 30 minutes per day.
For 30 days.
Sewing for 30 minutes per day is not a problem. I sew plenty. But not for myself.
I have a shelf, filled with finished quilts, made by me. But I don’t have one on my bed.
My goal is focused more on the selfish sewing, than on the 30/30.
This past week I ordered fabric from Mad About Patchwork.
Today I headed into town and found The.Perfect.Pattern (for ME!)
And picked up this coordinating zipper!
I had grabbed a jacket out of my closet and hung it in my sewing room. Glancing up at it each day this week as I happily pieced and quilted up a granny squares baby quilt. So even though the baby quilt was not FOR ME, it was time spent sewing each day, all this past week. And I thoroughly enjoyed making it!
Now, I just need to………
A) figure out what fabric I am going to use as the lining side for the inside of the jacket
B) decide whether to piece the fabric or just use the fabrics as is to make the sections
C) choose thread and a design to do the quilting with
