Progress on High Five

It has been so nice to be back to sewing again. I have been making a lot of progress on my High Five quilt.

Just finished my high five #quilt top. Thanks to my Sunday Morning Quilt bee mates who made all the blocks.

This quilt is made by the help of my Sunday Morning Quilts bee. In the bee we used the patterns from Sunday Morning Quilts Book. I picked high five for mine and I am loving the way it turned out. I can't wait to get it quilted. I am thinking loop-de-loos.

In other notes, it is official I am a reading glasses kind of gal. It has always been a you don't need them but it would help kind of thing but you can get them if you want them. Well since reading my teaching manuals and articles for my class was getting to be difficult, I decided to get them.

It is official I finally got reading glasses. It has always been a you don't need them but they would help kind of thing. However reading my teacher's manuals was becoming an issue so I caved. It is amazing how much easier it is to read when the words are

An added bonus is that a quarter inch is huge now, which means my seams are matching up so much easier.

See the reading glasses did help.

Such pretty seams and the best part is that most of them for the whole quilt top ended up that way. Which is kind of hard when you are putting together blocks made from  lots of people, because we all know each machine and each person has their own quarter inch.

  1. Oh I love this quilt! I love that book too! One of my favorites! I need to make another eye appt...hmm maybe that will improve my quilting! Now I have more incentive! :-)

  2. I clicked over to see your quilt, but I'm actually excited to hear about your glasses... I keep struggling with my back because I hunch over to see my pinning/sewing/everything. I should just bite the bullet and get my eyes checked! But more importantly, your quilt is beautiful!!

  3. I love it. It looks great.

  4. Your quilt is great! I also got some reading glasses and oh my! I can actually see what I'm sewing now :)
