blairs Al. Most. There. These baby clothes quilts I make go along so smoothly until the last few squares. Its where I cut and piece together the small, special bits. And where I play with color placement. This set of baby clothes has an abundance of white clothes, which makes the pattern more distinct. Need to play around with scattering the white out more. #upcycle #babyclothes 3h

blairs Working on a commission quilt this week, using their son's baby clothes. It really is such a privilege to be trusted to cut up these special clothes. If I'm ever nervous about cutting into them, I remember what @quilterpatsloan told me once- Cut into the hem first. It really does help with the initial nerves! #babyclothes #keepcalm #wisecrafthandmade 4d

blairs Worked on the #weightoflovequilt this afternoon, from the class I took with @libselliott . No one in my house is allowed to talk, laugh, or basically do anything that makes noise while I'm working in this. Keeping all pieces straight is a lesson in concentration. 1w
  •   blairs @castoncastoff Thank you! 1w
  •   liveacolorfullife @blairs I took this class at quiltcon. Isn't she amazing? I love your fabric choices. I chose shot cottons and not sure if that was a good idea. It'll be great if I can pull it off. And agree with the need for concentration! 4d
  •   blairs @liveacolorfullife she's quite talented. I got all the hexes pieced and placed, but wasn't feeling alert enough to tackle the Y seams. Not sure if I'll ever be 4d
  •   liveacolorfullife @blairs I totally know what you mean! Wish we could work on them together🏻 4d

blairs Done the very first day I began the #100daysofthreaddrawing project. Over the past couple of weeks, I've been doing a lot of free motion drawing on larger projects, which I also count as part of the daily practice. Excited to get back to these little squares though (they are 6-7 inches each). Grateful for spending 100 days learning and growing a skill. #threaddrawing 1w
  •   blairs @sharonhollanddesigns Thanks Sharon! 1w
  •   blairs @imagincolor Keep it up Shannon. My confidence level has increased dramatically with daily practice. More than I thought. 1w
  •   blairs @gogokim Ha! I don't, but probably should! 1w
  •   nestedinstitches I have the same experience with the BSR, but it probably wouldn't beep at me if I did FMQ as intricate as this! 1w

blairs Cutting up thrifted clothes to make "fabric" for future quilts. I cut close to the seams, but I leave a few uncut, just in case I want to use a few as they are. #upcycle 1w
