Happy New Year!!!


Hey Quilty Friends,

I spent all morning sewing the finishing touches for my new office! I made some bunting out of some rad koi fabric my mom bought me last summer and I curtain type thing to go behind the curtains for privacy!

The only thing I missed in 2012 was my sewing machine. I was so consumed with school that I feel like I missed out on some good projects! Oh well, such is life sometimes!

I hope 2013 is filled with lots of interesting projects. I hope if you are reading this, you are having a lovely day, wherever you are!

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!!!!

Love,
Melissa
My office, it's so cozy!
I made these from some fabric swatches for bridesmaids dresses LOL!

Brag for a friend

A few months back I "taught" a class on how to quilt my Snake Charmer quilt. I quoted taught because I'm not much of a teacher the sense of explaining each detail in depth. I really believe in learning by doing ... the more I tell you each detail that you need to do as you quilt the less you learn for yourself. Maybe it is lazy on my part, but I learned by just making things and I think other people should try learning that way too sometimes. ANYWAYS ... I was super excited when Emily showed me her fabric because I had envisioned this quilt with bright colors and black background but hadn't gotten around to making it. She did such a great job and she even did a pieced backing! I'm happy to report Emily has been bitten by the quilting bug and is working on her second quilt already!

HOORAY EMILY!!! Check out the awesome pictures she sent me :)
