News flash, People… narwhals are NOT fictional characters. They actually exist. Maybe you knew that, but until today, I did not.
Just in case you are even less informed than me, narwhals are whales with a unicorn-like horn. Google them. They’re fascinating.
So basically, I just experienced a paradigm shift. My mind has been blown. On one hand, I’m horrified I remained so ignorant for so long. On the other, I’m enchanted to learn these magical creatures are more than just a fairy tale.
My introduction to narwhals was an adorable quilting fabric by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller fabrics.
Perhaps you can understand my confusion. Who could guess these unicorns of the sea were based on real animals? Not I, my friend. NOT. I.
Now I am not a stupid person, but I’ll be the second to admit I don’t know everything. (My mother-in-law would be the first.) That is especially true when it comes to quilting, so one of my top goals for 2018 is to expand my skill-set.
I recently purchased Modern Quilt Magic by Victoria Findlay Wolfe and am going to spend the next few months learning to sew partial seams. I also want to continue my adventures in straight-line quilting using my digital dual feed foot. I had a great experience with that while working on Positively Scrappy.
Do you set sewing goals every year? If so, what do you have planned for 2018? Perhaps a lovely narwhal quilt?
Happy New Year, My Friend.
Today, I machine-stitched the binding to the front of my Positively Scrappy quilt. All that remains is a few evenings of Netflix binging while hand-sewing it to the back and the quilt will be cuddle ready.
I love this quilt for many reasons, even though it’s probably not the most beautiful one in the world.
I like to review one or more binding tutorials before I start binding a new quilt and there are SO many to chose from. Here are a few that I like:
Well, here it is…Sunday evening again. I’m off to bed and tomorrow I’ll be back at my day job for a few days, so Aloha for now, Y’all. Thanks for stopping by.
