About Me

I like to sew, but the great thing about making a quilt is there are no zippers!  Or button holes!  Or dealing with flimsy pattern paper!

You can find a link to the quilts I’ve finished since I started this blog here.

    I am not a quilter but you followed me so let’s just stay on the same path and get to know each other. I took two sewing classes and learned a lot but clothes in thrift stores or sales racks come ready made and the cost is actually less than making them! 🙂

    Very good reasons for choosing quilts over clothes. I do both but always try to avoid buttonholes and zips when I can – think stretch fabric and cutting on the bias!

    1. I saw a tutorial for a key chain wristlet the other day that I think I might make. I am always losing my keys in my purse, and my purse isn’t that big. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8CFhRt6huI#action=share

    I succumbed once and made a pair of pajama pants. From directional fabric. Idiot. Never again. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog.

    1. I almost lost my senses yesterday and thought about making a jacket for myself but when I remembered the buttonhole, that’s all it took to say – forget that! Zippers in pants comes in a close second place.

  8. I am with you! I made all of my clothes until the age of 30 – never have made another garment, sewed another zipper, or even attempted to. Do not even like little “purses”, etc that are so popular now. JUST QUILTING!! LOL

    1. I haven’t made a single purse either! I occasionally sew costumes and so forth for the kids but haven’t made anything for me to wear in years (and don’t plan to – haha!).

  10. I like your reasons for liking quilting. May I add that there’s also very little pinning or having to anchor beginning and ending sewing lines.

  11. I enjoy quilts but have no talent for creating them so I always admire people who have the skill and patience. Thank you for following Beauty Along the Road.
