My 2nd Granny Square quilt is named "Granny Squared" Hum not the best name but my wife hated every one I picked and I know who the boss is (and she would just edit it out if I put one of mine any way) so I might as well call it what she liked. I was going to quilt this diagonally and I did like 7 rows before getting frustrated and my wonderful wife Tanya picked them out (maybe that's why I will let her name it). After not being able to figure out how to run a straight diagonal (mostly because my table was full of junk, so most my quilt was hanging off making it go off weird angled). So I have some straight lines going up and down and right and left. Not quite as cool as the spiral I did for the other one, but my wife was not up to helping and this one has waited too long (need the quilt to go with me to visit grandma soon to show her the baby).
I will put up more pictures of this quilt later down in the post, but first I promised to pick a winner for the giveaway for Angel Baby Boutique Giveaway Jared and Mom did the picking while I was working on packing a box up will talk more about that in a sec.
Now to what I was working on when my wife was figuring out prizes. I opened a Etsy store last week or so and I have listed so far 7 items 6 rag quilt's (baby size) and 1 pair of hot pads. I was excited when at work, I noticed in my email that I had sold my first item.
Yep I had my first sale I am so excited and I think my wife even more. She picked the colors on this one and sewed most of the blocks up. So I guess while my wife got a sell? While I am still excited all the same. I am selling my small baby quilts (about 33 x 33 inches) for 40$ plus shipping cost.
Lastly for my daily excitement, I registered for 2 classes at HMQS the first one I have Class #226
A Soldier's Star Taught by Deonn Stott will start on Thursday morning at 8am and the 2nd class I am taking Class #314 Free Motion Quilting on the Domestic Machine Taught by: Paula Reid.
I am still nervous to go (I know I should not be but am any way). Some people don't take me serious, because I am a Guy that Quilts (you should see the looks I get from some of my co-workers) When I go to quilt stores or buy material and my wife is there they look at her and ask what she is making. She always giggles and points at me and says he is the quilter ask him. It always ends with a gasp really you quilt?
Any way off I go to the Quilt Show. I am excited to go look at all the quilts and materials up for sell. I am a visual person I have to see it. I like following blogs that have more pictures then text (though I do read most the text) when behind I just skip the pictures looking for that next thing to wow me. I hope to be wowed at the show.
Enough of me blabbing, More pictures of my pretty quilt Have a great weekend.
