Done procrastinating and started piecing the next quilt. Who am I that chooses so many colors?! We lost astrid's rainbow dash, but I've got my rainbow stash! #quilt #quilting #sewing #sew #modernquilts #modernquilting #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...

Astrid tells me all the colors frequently. I'm tempted to keep these stripes, but this is about to get chopped up! Stay tuned. #sewing #machinepiecing #rainbow #quilting #piecing #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...

Finished piecing this quilt top at open sew with @kathleenbaden at the @villagefabricshop and all the ladies last night (@jenniferbbaker @carrieleigh07 @frsmith8 @ms25335 @lschwieb) Basting time and planning to heavily quilt on the white (maybe matchstick quilting?). #sewing #quilting #quilttop #rainbow #quilt #piecing #machinepieced #machinepiecing #makersgunnamake #winstonsalem #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...

A bit of progress. Basting and laying down just a few quilting lines here. Planning for heavy quilting with a small side of piecing. Pink hearts on the back, another upcycled sheet. #sewing #quilting #basting #machinepiecing #machinepieced #machinequilting #aurifilthread #aurifil #charmpack #warmandnaturalbatting #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...

Took an unexpected turn on this in the direction of stitch the ditch inside the squares, instead of my original plan. Only 12*32 little squares to quilt 🙂 #sewing #quilting #leciencharmpack #rainbow #quilt #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...

I have this thing for quilting on white. In the middle of adding 1/2 inch quilting lines here. I can't wait to see this washed and texture-filled. #quilting #quiltinprogress #sewing #originalpattern #topquilt #quilt #modernquilts #modernquilting #aurifilthread #aurifil #quilts #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...

Baby steps on quilting today. A quote and a note to accompany this #wip. My husband always says I have some project I'm working on. This will be my new response to him, which summarizes how I feel about making. I think this quote was on a recent "Art For Your Ear" podcast, one of my favorite podcasts featuring interviews with artists. This year, my goal has been to make one original quilt per month, and although I've felt my quilt mojo has been low at times, a common theme among these interviewed artists is to just keep creating, which is what I've continued to do. Don't let fear of judgement, fear of imperfection, fear of going down a path that will result in a U-turn, fear of decision making, fear of derivatives (ha!) stop you from making. Next on this quilt, I have to make a decision on whether I'll add 1/4 inch quilt lines here (120 total) or stop the straight line quilting where it's at. #quilt #quilting #modernquilts #modernquilting #sewing #making #makersgunnamake #creativelifehappylife #konacotton #aurifilthread #aurifil #machinepieced #machinequilting #machinequilted #stephskardalquiltssept2016 ...
