Lately, I’ve been in me mode.
You may be wondering, how so?
I caved the other day and decided that I wanted a quilt of my own. My year long project of making quilts for my family members hasn’t ended – just taking a small break from it. After completing two quilts, piecing together two quilt tops, and various smaller projects I re-evaluated the hard work that Indigo LaRue and I have put forth.
What do we have to show for all of our hard work besides the pictures and happy receivers of our spoils?
This past weekend I set my mind to the fact that I wanted to make something of my own. A quilt. My own quilt. For just me. Not WareBear. Just Sevi.
Looking back on it, my own personal quilt should’ve been my first project. Clearly, I wasn’t thinking then – let’s just say I was caught up in the moment of my beginning stages of becoming a sewing goddess.
I made the trek to CityCraft, snagged some killer fabric, and began the cutting stages. For the first time, I received (a little) peace from cutting the fabric squares. Maybe this was my sign that I needed to complete this for myself to make this process more enjoyable…not really, still hate cutting fabric.
I’ve embarked on my first big project for myself and I have a good feeling that this experience will make me better at this craft. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my own stuff – every line must be perfect and I will seam rip the hell out of something if it isn’t. Hopefully, this will add some quality into the work that I put into the other list of projects I need to finish or embark on.
