Hello to anyone who sees this! I started this blog because I love to sew and quilt. And I'm a total fabric junky and fabric hoard(er) and proud of it! When I set sight on a gorgeous print, it inspires me to be creative (and i drool a little).
In this blog I plan to post easy-to-follow tutorials on different sewing projects and quilting projects. And no worries if you've never quilted or sewn before, hopefully my tutorials will get you interested, maybe even inspired to start. They'll be simple to follow, anyone-with-opposable thumbs-can-do-it crafts. :) And since I love fabric so much, i hope to eventually offer beautiful, affordable fabrics to you (but that's still in the works ;).
Why Quilting in the Rain? Because i'm located in the rainy city of Seattle. My crafts corner is situated in front of a window and I often find myself quilting in the rain. Though, I recently dropped two grand on my new Pfaff sewing machine and quilting frame - if i keep that up I'll literally be quilting in the rain.
Anyway, enough with my rambling. Below is my sweet baby...
She's a Pfaff Grand Quilter...i haven't named her yet.
And this is my crafts corner where the magic happens:
And of course, my Imperial Quilting frame. The frame can double in length. To quilt, I simply pop my grand quilter onto the frame and quilt away:
My hubby helped me put the frame together. Scratch that. My hubby put the frame together while I fumbled with the manual.
Prior to buying it I was optimistic that the frame wouldn't impede on his musical/guitar area...that was an epic fail...
My hubby is the best. :)
Well, that was my little intro. I've been working on 2 new quilts and plan on posting tutorials soon. My hubby and I also finished revamping an old, puke-yellow armoire. We painted it and upholstered the doors and basically made it into an ultimate storage unit for all my quilting tools and fabrics. I'll post before and after photos. :) Until next time..!
