Being All Loopy Is NOT Easy

The bonding continues.

With my new sewing machine.

Hats off to the quilters who make loops seem so easy to make. They are NOT!! The process looks simple enough. Going round and round. But try it. You want to make the loops all perfect and consistent but something happens between Point A to Point B. You realize you have to go left instead of right. The space is smaller than you thought. You get boxed in. And so on and so on.

I wanted to practice on something other than a scrap quilt sandwich. So I made this little doll quilt from one of my extra Scrappy Trip Around The World blocks.

The heart country-look fabric had been in my stash over two years. Some of the first I bought when I was stash building. It had been auditioned many, many times but rarely used. I thought it would be perfect for this project.

Now I have to decide on the binding. Maybe green. And a doll quilt needs a little pillow, right? πŸ˜€

What else have I been working on?

I have spent practically all month working with my scraps. And loving it. Will be sad when they are all gone. But HEY. That is good news. It means I need to get busy cutting into my stash.

Will be back tomorrow or Wednesday. Lots to show you.

Regarding my awful loops… practice, practice, practice.

    Loops are not easy, true, but we all need to remember ….”Perfection, is highly over rated.” I, personally, love your loops. :^D

  2. I think your loops look great! No one will look at them as closely as you… ever!

  3. Deb says:

    They look great Donna! And I love the little hearts in there! They really make it work. πŸ™‚

  4. Lennette says:

    I think your loops look wonderful Donna!! Like Deb said, no one will EVER look at them as closely as you and like Vivian said, perfection is overrated!

  5. Betty says:

    Donna you have been very busy. I just love your quilts. You are really enjoying your beautiful sewing machine.

  6. Belinda says:

    I also think your loops look great! πŸ™‚ Yep, like the others have said, perfection is definitely overrated! πŸ˜‰

    What’s wrong with your loops? Who says all loops have to be exactly the same size? They forgot to tell me…and I do longarm quilting for others!!! Your loops are just fine! And if someone starts peering too closely, just tell them they aren’t supposed to smell your quilt!!

    Hi everyone. I think you are right!! I tend to beat myself up if the result doesn’t match the image in my head. My head sees perfectly formed round loops. My hands disagree. πŸ˜€

    I finished sewing the binding yesterday and have to say, I love it. Going to make another one using one of the extra STATW blocks.

    Thanks for helping me see the beauty in imperfection.

    And can’t even sew, let alone quilt or loop. But I do admire the handiwork. I should’ve kept up on my sewing after Jr. High. grrrrr…

  10. This little quilt is perfectly charming!
