A Light-hearted Look at Appliqué Quilts by Sandy Fitzpatrick


It's Not Always Work!

 I always come away rejuvenated after teaching a class and Friday was no exception. The free-motion class I taught at Bernina World of Sewing was such fun with a lively group of ladies so eager to pick up some new tips.

Sometimes I get so bogged down with paperwork and the business aspect of trying to have a design business that I forget to take the time to sew and enjoy what got me into this business in the first place!

I took some time this past week to actually sit down at my machine and have a little fun. Ahhh, there’s nothing like the feeling of pride and accomplishment when you are actually working on a project and seeing it develop before your eyes.

Since I recently refolded all my fabric and have it in shelves that I can actually see everything now, it was so much easier to find just the right fabrics to pull together for a block.


Granted, my sewing room soon turned into a disaster area as I began to pull and audition fabrics and then proceed to cut them up but what fun I had in the process.

Time management is a real challenge for me but I'm slowly getting a little better at it. I've signed up to take a class next week to help me get my act together. Hopefully I will be able to schedule more time with my machine and actually see these designs bouncing around in my head come to life!
