It’s Monday again – are you ready for another Main Crush Monday? I hope you are because I love seeing all your fantastic projects. 🙂
Before we go to MCM, I just have to share this little tidbit with you. Yesterday I went to the grocery store early in the morning. You know, to get it done and over with (bleh!) As a reward to myself for tackling the shopping, I stopped at my favorite coffee shop on the way home for a frosty ice capp. (You thought I was going to say cafe mocha, didn’t you??) The guy handed it to me and he had made a sweet little heart shape using chocolate syrup. Made my day. It’s the little things, you know?
Last week I had an unplanned hiatus from my sewing room, so I’ve made zero progress on my many projects. Let’s all hope that this week is different. Speaking of this week, I know many of you will be heading to Savannah for Quilt Con. I hope you have a fabulous time! I’ll be stalking Instagram so I can see all the fun you’ll be having – be sure to post lots of pics for those of us who won’t be there!
Since I don’t have any progress pics to show, let’s get on with MCM. But first, a look at a few of the link-ups from last week.
Sarah of 123 Quilt is working on a gray/white/black quilt that looks so great. Sometimes working with a calm color palette is like taking a deep breath. Or like sniffing the coffee beans after smelling all the scents at Bath & Body – know what I mean? It cleans the senses. I really like this top!
Michelle of From Bolt to Beauty talks about how she tackled quilting an orange peel design using her walking foot on this sweet baby quilt. If you are on the fence about trying to quilt your own tops on your domestic machine, I encourage you to try. There are so many good tips, videos, and tutorials available to help get you started. Michelle’s post was interesting and encouraging – go check it out!
Nancy of Grace and Peace Quilting shared this beauty – it was pieced around 1940. I love old quilts! Be sure to click on over to her blog if you haven’t already. She has close-up pics of some of the blocks and the old prints are so fun to see. I enjoyed seeing this quilt.
I’m so motivated now to get back into my sewing room! I hope you are too. So let’s see what you’re crushing on this week. What has you excited to be in your sewing space or creating this week? You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
