wow awesome looking quilt! I’m not waiting anymore, but I wish I had picked up quilting when I was–someday, I will definitely learn to do it! (It’s something I’ve wanted to do for SOOOO LONG!)

Show us pictures of the finished product please!!! And also, your night does sound fantastic–that is so cute that he knew a Tiffany ring! πŸ™‚ Hope you get your ring and the earrings soon!

What a great quilt!  I love your colors and pattern.  I have one in mind that I have been thinking about for months but I haven’t fully planned out yet.  My fiance’s cousin is living with us for a while and he is staying in the second bedroom/sewing room so most of my stuff got boxed up and put away for the time being.  I figure that I will find plenty of crafty DIY stuff to do once we settle on save the dates and invite stuff.  Plus I am strongly considering sewing the flower girl dresses for our wedding. 

My main hobbies right now consist of baking cookies (for my FH and his cousin), trying to collect inspiration photos for the house we are renovating, and when I just want to unwind I play PS3, Wii, or computer games (yeah were tech geeks).  What I should be doing though is working on my Thesis so I try to fit that in too.

Oh and playing with and walking my Corgi!  I’m sure you can relate πŸ™‚

I have been thinking about starting up a hobby.  Evidently school and work is not enough to keep my mind off waiting!  

I just don’t know what to do…

What a great quilt! I am super jealous of people who have the patience for such things… normally I just whip something together real quick on the sewing machine and be done with it. It looks lovely and congrats on the boy doing research! That’s a big step!

@corgi: your boyfriend sounds sooo adorable!! i think i’d about pass out if i heard M talking like that (like when i just about died when he said that he’d get my ring size while i was sleep with a sizer and then changed his mind because it may be larger or smaller than i’d prefer so i should just tell him)

love the quilt! i picked up calligraphy before i got sooo busy with client’s planning their weddings.  i am actually so busy with them that i don’t even think about us getting engaged at all anymore well not that much lol…

I love that quilt design! I’ve made three quilts, I was going to ask if you used a machine…so glad I’m not the only one who does! I made my first one in high school for my then-bf, and it’s still on his bed, according to his mom. I also made a few for baby showers. Sadly, I don’t have a machine anymore, and I’m ITCHING to get one! None of my other hobby attempts are as cool or as fulfilling as quilting…

My goal for this fall is to make a t-shirt blanket out of BF’s old sports t-shirts. He wants to keep his favorites to wear (even though some are 10 years old) and doesn’t want a shirt made out of his “not favorites”… I may just have to make my own!

funny I stumbled upon this thread

 

I’m the Bride’s mom~ but right now my daughter is sewing up a quilt.

Our neighbor designs quilts and has written a couple of books~ that sweet woman has taught the daughter how to do this newfound love and her quilt top is BEAUTIFUL

 

She ordered a “jelly roll” to make the first one and the second one she used a “honeybun” …. love how the fabrics come already coordinated

The next she bought the fabric and decided upon her colors

I took up scrapbooking. It isn’t fabulous looking, but I have al ot of pictures, so why not? PLUS, it helps when I attempt to DIY invitations in the future. LOL
