Quilting has changed my life!

Funny thing I noticed today. I am making some more bridesmaid skirts - another wedding coming up! ANYWAY, as I was sewing I realized that although I got my bachelors degree in clothing and textiles and have been sewing most of my life on clothing, I now hate taking that HUGE 5/8 " seam allowance!!  It looks gigantic after sewing so many 1/4" seams on quilts!

So I've decided that quilting has made me a more thrifty person. I keep all kinds of little scraps that I would never have kept before because they were too small to make a clothing item out of. I am so glad I was introduced to quilting about 6 years ago, I don't know what I would be doing without it. Thank you dear quilty friends!


  1. I know! Those 5/8 seams HUGE!!!!

  2. I haven't sewn a 5/8" seam in YEARS! Not sure I could do it :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
