Quilting Ideas

I finally got around to thinking about some quilting ideas for this year.


* I'd like to start up on some YouTube quilting tutorials. I got the H1N1 virus a couple of months ago and it really put me back with all the coughing. Plus my camera people are little and that makes it hard.

Some topics I thought of via google analytics are
*back basting
*Janome 6600 review
*Janome 350e review
*Viking Topaz review
*Piecing a Dahlia quilt

Anything else you would like me to attempt to do for a tutorial?

*Buy a pair of Dovo scissors. I want them. I know I do. Just get them.

*Machine embroider pillowcases and a sheet set.

*Machine embroider matching towels (not to the above)

*Finish two quilts. That's right two. Not a zillion. Not five. Two.

*Think about getting those knitted beaded bags done. I have attempted it. Several times in fact. Things just keep going wrong. However; I can knit with size 0000 needles now. Sort of.

*Find a beginner book on how to knit a pair of socks. Maybe even try knitting one..not a pair. Just one sock. Any suggestions on the book? And NOT Knitting For Dummies. Useless book series.

*Learn to make or buy something *GASP* whimsical and cute that's not quilt related. This one will kill me. I know it will. Cute and/or whimsical is not me.

I've stretched my brain too far now. Anything else and my brain will explode.

For the socks, join Ravelry.com and search for Silver's Sock class. It is a wonderful tutorial on socks. You're going LOVE making them!

I have a friend who swears by the Stitch n' Bitch book series. I taught myself how to crochet last summer using their book, "The Happy Hooker."
