I’ve been trying to develop my skills and talents lately because I really admire people with a particular craft. It seems like so much emphasis these days is placed on anything tech-related, so it’s refreshing to still see things being handmade.
Last Fall, I started making a blue and white quilt that I fell in love with from an image on Pinterest. I probably should have picked an easier quilt for my first one because this one has been quite challenging. After a few starts, stops, and do-overs, I’m finally making progress, though! I’ve made about half of the large squares that I need to.
The quilt colors are a little darker than what I originally wanted (with more dark tones than light), but I’m happy overall with how it’s turning out. I managed to track down the pattern, but I’ve had to modify it because the image I loved is a little different than the pattern. You quilters out there must know what I’m talking about.
Anyway, I wanted to share my progress with you to encourage you to try something new as well. Learning a new hobby and developing a new skill sounds a little scary, but it’s also very rewarding.
Have you tried anything new lately that you’ve never done before?
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
