The first of my goals that I was able to finish was from the Craftsy class Sewing with knits. I am learning a lot about knits. I am not really thrilled with how the bottom of the garment turned out. I am not sure why it worked out the way it did and why it hangs kind of funny. I really whish I had a teacher that could help me figure this out. Wait I do... that is what is great about the Craftsy classes. Now I just need to send in the pictures and ask the questions. I have kind of turned off the garment sewing for the last few weeks because I am trying to get some good progress on my Free Motion Quilting on my 3X6 quilt. So as soon as I am finished with the quilt I will post pictures on Craftsy and see what the teacher Meg McElwee has to say.
My second accomplishment for the month is all the progress I have made on my 3X6 quilt.
I am working dilligently to get this quilt finished before the boys get home. The blocks from the quilt were all made by my friends on Flickr. It will be a picnic blanket to use this summer. It has a special place in my heart because I just told the 3X6 group the colors and they got to pick the blocks. The group is really fun. I did it 3 times so I really have a nice variety of blocks.
I have At least 4 other tops that I have pieced that I need to also quilt at some point in this year so once I get one under my belt I will feel much better. I am really enjoying all I am learning from the craftsy classes. I have gone a bit overboard and am currently taking 4 different classes on FMQ on Craftsy. You might ask is she addicted to and the answer is "YES!" I really am just loving all I am learning. I love learning from other people's blogs.. but I really love the videos on Craftsy!
My final goal for April was to make myself a skirt. I have not yet completed this goal. I actually have not really even thought about the goal.... Oh wait... I have finished the goal. I did not make any new skirts however, I did clean out my closet and fixed two skirts that previosly were not wearable. So yes!!!! I finsihed all of my goals for the month.
I fixed the zipper on the above green zipper as well! So two skirts! Mission acomplished!
The Quilt is not yet out of my sewing room. I am hoping to get it wrapped up this weekend.
Stay tuned for pictures! I also have a little secret to share with you all and I am really excited about it!
