Back in September I gave myself a personal challenge. I called it my GO! Sew Challenge. I just didn't feel I was using my AccuQuilt GO! enough. I could mention (ahem) all those dies I have that I haven't even used yet. So there was the challenge -- that every week I would work on a project that used a GO! die and, to keep myself honest, I would post a picture on the blog. I didn't require that I actually use the GO! itself, just that I work on a project that had used one.
So, I'm really quite pleased with myself that, so far, I've met the challenge. I got a lot of little Christmas projects done, and I've got plans for a bed quilt or two. So far, so good. Which brings me to this week and what my sewing room currently looks like.
Which is this:
The good news, of course, is the prospect of newly painted walls and new flooring. The challenge is that my sewing room "stuff" is scattered in toppling, mostly inaccessible piles all over the downstairs.
So, here's the GO! project for this week. Terrie hand quilts!
I think I might try and keep this up, actually hand quilt a few of my little quilts in process. Taking down the quilts that had been on the wall gives me pretty good motivation to think about getting some new things done.
Civil War reproductions? Two color quilts -- red and white, or blue and white? I'm debating.
Meanwhile, I've got the quilt hoop out and I'm trying to remember how to get a decent quilt stitch. Let's just say I'm not needing to put in any extra effort to get that authentic imperfect primitive look!
