Hooray, I have finished a ton more than I had done last time. I’ve been lacking motivation since the last progress post. Thankfully a friend came over to sew with me last night and I was able to finish ALL of the lettering for the front of my youngest daughter’s quilt.

The pile of lettering in the back corner of the photo has 14 characters in it. To document the time I’ve taken on this – 14 characters took me about 5 hours to make. Now I have to figure out what to do with the letter spacers, line spacers and the rest of the front of the quilt.

I have to admit, I am a bit terrified to start that part. The lettering is (thankfully) painfully straightforward. The creative part has me actually trying to decide how to make a quilt top when I haven’t really made one before! Ooops… maybe I should have made something a bit less complex for my first real quilts! Ah well – as my husband reminds me – he’s rarely seen me mess up something sewing related (though it happens – Trust me!). His confidence is about all that is keeping me going at the moment! I’m off to spend some quality time – just me and Pinterest – seeing what I can come up with.
