One Crazy Fiber Lady

I have completed my first quilt on the featherweight.  


The binding is a bit rough, the points aren’t perfect. ¬†I may be a super knitter but I’m a relative newbie to this quilting business. ¬†This is actually only my third one. ¬†It is the first that I machine quilted though I’m not sure if doing in the ditch quilting on a machine really counts as “quilting”. ¬†But there it is. ¬†

The quilt inspector had her review of it:


I guess the top of her head is better than her drippy eyes 😉 ¬†She’s a weird cat anyway.

Best yet, the quilt recipient is the happiest of all that it is done. ¬†She’s been toting it around with her, even took it to school yesterday to show it off.


She’s into folding things these days. ¬†Comes in handy when I do laundry 😉

Oh yeah, I still spin…


Craft on!

    It looks gorgeous, and so obviously loved! That’s a look of sheer joy there, bet you get a little melty on the inside when she does that.

    Your cat still seriously freaks me out. 😛

    I loves that quilt…. I’ve been wanting to try quilting for the longest, any resources (learn tos) you can suggest?

    Well done! Of course, the ditch counts. Free motion quilting is something totally different than regular quilting.

    Love the spinning!

    What Cookie said. ;o)

    Love the quilt – and that fiber looks familiar…

    It’s beautiful! And you can see the appreciation in both the little one’s faces…well, maybe a tiny bit less on the kitty. 🙂

    I wish I could say that I still spin…between everything else (and I have 2 baby quilt tops ready to be sandwiched and quilted as we speak) I haven’t had a wheel out to spin on in probably over a year. Until my yarn stash gets a bit more managable, I’m not going to make any more.

    Great job with the quilt! And yes, stitch in the ditch still counts as quilting. Any little mistakes you might see now will vanish as it’s used, and the recipient and the inspector obviously don’t care.

    Looks like you’re well on your way to your sewing rivaling your knitting. Nicely done! Love those colors in the spinning, too.
