My mom’s continued generosity has extended to the rest of the dark value cloth, and a cloth cutting tool from a thrift shop, though I might still try and use her fancier ones if she’ll let me, hah. There was a period of panic as we couldn’t find the magazine my design was in, I just had picture on my phone of it, and need to trace the actual squares from a page to get the right size. After a week or two it surfaced, thankfully. The design makes references to early 2000’s internet culture and that entertains me each time I see it, it’s the main reason I choose the quilt. Now that I have the cloth, and the design I should get some pictures to update on here. I’ll include a picture of the design, and why it entertains me then.

 

There is paper-piecing involved in this quilt, so right now I am just waiting on the foundation paper in the mail before I begin to learn how to piece the squares. Usually I begin with simpler goals, but this it still exciting.

On a trip helping my mom to visit friends we stopped at a good quilting store. She is excited I want to learn to quilt, and very generously bought me ~5yards of cloth. So now I have all the medium value cloth I need. All I have to work on now is find the dark value cloth. I’ll post the pattern and some pictures of the cloth as soon as I figure out how to get the wordpress app working on my phone again hah.

I found a quilting pattern I’ll be trying out. I’ve enjoyed knitting since I was a teenager and I think it’d be nice to learn another fabric craft. First I’m figuring out how to go about finding and buying the fabric I want to use. Thankfully my mom loves quilting and I am going to be spending lots of time with her over the next month or so.

I didn’t update here about it, but I did Inktober last year, it was lots of fun and kinda silly cause mine were scribbles of my ideas. I’ll do it again this coming year and maybe someday even use this blog productively 😛
