Voltron: A Finished Quilt for my Husband

Voltron Quilt

The Most important quilt I’ve ever made

That about sums up how I feel about this Voltron quilt.  Kevin has [not] been patiently waiting for almost five years for this quilt.  It started with something he had sketched out saying how it would be a great quilt.  And me giving him the look.  You know the one that says you’re crazy.  I had been quilting for a long time but I don’t venture past my comfort zone very often.  This time I did, for him.  No pattern just me making it up as I go.

Don’t get me wrong social media is not always bad, it’s how I become inspired. To see other quilter’s creativity helps jump-start mine. But not when I need to accomplish my goals. Continue reading

Zig Zag Pillow- Finish it up Friday

Zig Zag Pillow

My First Finish of 2017

Well I have my first finish of the year! It’s not a big finish but at least it can be marked off the list! Yippee!  One of my goals for the year is to make a pillow to match every quilt I make.  It’s my way of using those scraps instead of just putting more in my scrap bin.  Which is way out of control, but I’ll get to that another time!
