If the Thread Fits🧵

During the last couple of years I decided to take up a new hobby – quilting!  I found myself loving this new challenge and now I am making quilts for friends and family🧵


After finding and claiming a space in my house that is just mine, I set up my sewing machine and organized all my fabrics.  I started with something I thought I could handle, like a small tote. After mastering that task, for a fleeting moment, all was right with the world.  Then came the bigger project – the quilt.


The quilting world is full of terms, acronyms, and technique names that I’m definitely not familiar with.  What is a tiny pizza cutter? A jelly roll pattern? A walking foot?  Then there are the different types of batting: polyester, cotton, cotton/poly blend, wool, bamboo and silk.  I was hit by an overwhelming sense that I may never be able to understand it all.


Well, it took a little while, but now I make a pretty nice quilt.  For every quilt I make, I sew on a VideoDrop Fabric Label.  These are so cute and I am able to attach a video so I can document who I made the quilt for, when I made it and if it is a gift for someone.  With these fabric labels, I can also sew them on the inside of a beach bag I am giving to my niece or onto a stuffed animal that I’m giving to my baby nephew.  The possibilities are endless!
