I’ve been procrastinating on the sewing for a quilt I cut out some weeks back. All the prints are from a couple lines of Tina Givens fabrics.
They seem to play well with each other but not so much with fabrics by other designers. I cut what I thought was the perfect background color.
But now, I’m not so sure. I think this is what has been keeping me from working on this. I found a piece of a very odd color of Kona in my stash and it might be better. It’s hard to see the difference between these two fabrics, the second has a rosy tone to it. I have exactly three yards of this, it might be enough.
In other news, this happened on Instagram last week.
Who knew that many people cared what I am sewing on any given day? Daughter #2 encouraged me to get an IG account just for quilting a couple years ago. I have really enjoyed it as a way to connect with other quilters and find inspiration for projects. I keep a separate, private IG account for family photos.
It doesn’t replace blogging though, or reading blogs. I love both. For the last few years, I have used Bloglovin’ to keep up with the blogs I follow. There are some things about it that I don’t care for. I know many people use Feedly, but apparently it doesn’t always play nice either.
I have Facebook, but I don’t post much quilting stuff there. I mostly use it to keep up with friends and family. Some quilters have FB accounts for just quilting, but I think that is more than I want to keep up with. If I end up long arming as a business at some point, I may change my mind.
Have a great day!
