I'm gonna kill my sewing machine!

And I mean that in the nicest way possible. Dot manage to wear out her sewing machine from sewing every day on it, for at least 30 minutes a day. Clever way to get a new machine eh? ;) Plus, you'll have lots of quilts finished too! I figure I have about 5 or 10 more years to go. :D

I started another Quick Twist today! I wanted something that was more spring-y.

I bought the flower fabric from WalMart several days ago. I place it near my computer and looked at it a lot. I knew I wanted to use it in a Quick Twist, but... do I pair it with a yellow? Purple? Wait... green! I've seen this fabric around before and most people seem to pair it up with yellow or purple, but I had the perfect green for it. And the perfect amount too - enough for the strips and binding. :)

And it makes me think of a garden. Green is the grass, the flowers are in beds, swirling all around the grass. Yeah, it's a happy quilt for me. :)

April Fool's Day... no jokes around here, except that I've gotten an unusually lot of visitors today - over 160, when I usually get about 60-80/day. So hello to everybody who's stopping by! :)

Yes, I think I've seen that pretty pansy fabric before. A great way to welcome spring! Happy sewing!

Hey Leah, Kathy stopping your quilts! That quick twist looks like fun, do you really think a beginner could try it?
