Aunt Sukey Spins Off

Coming to life:

Aunt Sukey Spins Off

This will be a bed quilt…I don’t have a good way to photograph it, but you can see that I am making some progress.

I had originally planned on this being a scrappy red and white quilt.  But then I won the gorgeous Island Batik fabric (so excited)!  Why didn’t I switch some of those half square triangles to flying geese?  It would’ve been easier.  Alas…I didn’t think to do that until after I cut the fabric.

Nope…not all my seams are lined up.  I’m okay with that.  Seeking perfectionism doesn’t make me happy.  My happiness is in the creative process, and one day, a finished project.

Speaking of slow stitching (you can’t be much slower than me), have you seen Mark Lipinski’s blog featuring the Slow Stitching Movement?  I find it quite inspiring.  Perhaps you will too!

Now, slowly on to the borders.

Aunt Sukey Spins Off is in the Making

I’ve had precious little time for anything but the day job.  Never the less, I am spending that precious little time in the sewing studio.

I am working on Aunt Sukey Spins Off…my entry in SewCalGal’s Red and White Quilt Challenge.

I had better lighting for this second picture.

I’m lovin’ the Island Batik fabrics that I am using!  Thank you Island Batik!

I’m am thrilled to announce, and more than a little surprised (there are very good entries), that I won this challenge!  You can read about that at SewCalGal’s.

Island Batik sent enough yardage for me to make the quilt top.  Isn’t it gorgeous fabric?!
