all about the fabulous, confident, and worthy me.

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?

Nothing.

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.

How killer are these patterns!?!

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.

Wishful thinking…

    You deserve your own quilt for all that you do for everyone else. Can’t wait to see it, I’m sure it’s going to be perfect!

      Thank you! I am so excited to work on this one. I have a really cute idea going with the squares. I’m hoping that I can get a few of them done this weekend to post a picture of it. Too bad we aren’t at QuiltCon together!
