Terry, your #1 post has made you a winner! Hope you enjoy the new KT Favorites - 10 Years & Counting BOM book.
Be the first to get a taste of the new Perennials fabric collection hitting the shops in January with our giveaway ending Dec. 26th - a Perennials charm pack and pattern. The quarter circle raw edge applique is a twist on the traditiional Drunkard's Path block without the curved piecing - and no drunks in sight (unless you enjoy sewing with a Diet Coke & Captain Morgan like someone else I know). Keeps the type A perfectionist in me in check. What do you do to destress and enjoy the process of stitching?
I'm up to my ankles in flannel making pillowcases for the grandkids this weekend. It's given me time to reflect on the different quilting styles. There are 2 types of quilters - process & product. Process quilters enjoy creating and sewing with no real compulsion to finish (hence, numerous UFOs.) Product quilters, like me, enjoy the finished project the most, but then we also have a list of a dozen more things to do. Of course, in my business, the product has to be finished to sell it to move on to the next one. That may have an impact on my style, but I've always loved the last few stitches in a quilt binding. Not that I don't have UFOs stacking up, but they're mostly personal "fun" projects I've started in between KT "have to" projects. I set aside New Year's, Mother's Day and a snow day each year to sew just for me. Try setting aside quilting days just for yourself, whether it's a retreat or a personal escape in your own sewing room. It's the best way to destress and create something at the same time.
Happy Christmas Shopping,
