What a generous giveaway! My proudest sewing moment was when I realised my quarter inch seam was finally accurate - makes such a difference!

Jenelle said...

I felt pretty proud this past year when I finally quilted my first quilt at home. :) It's still not my favorite part of the process, but it felt good to finish it myself. Thanks for the chance!

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

I would have to say my Advent calendar - from the blocks designed by my friend and I, to totally winging the construction and it actually working, to the kids absolutely enthralled with it!

Lesly said...

Michelle Wagner said...

My proudest sewing moment was early this summer when I completed my first quilt for my oldest daughter. It was a test to find out if I really did like this quilting thing. Much to my surprise, I was hooked!

That is an excellent question and one that is hard for me to answer. I guess being inspired to make Shattered and then having it so widely loved might be my proudest this year. Lovely giveaway!

I did my first block of the month with In Color Order and I must say it was really a great way to pace myself and who doesn't love actually having a finished project at the end :)

I had such a sense of accomplishment finally biting the bullet and taking the quilting journey. Now I can say, I'm a total quilting addict...having tons of projects on the horizon and several WIPs just waiting to be FOs!

T said...

I made an entire dance teams worth of skirts in less than a week....that was something

The project that I am most proud of this year was the first quilt that I quilted with free motion. I had done practice ones, but not anything I cared about how it turned out.

Margaret said...

I started the quilt along with Pile O Fabric to do the Groove quilt. I got behind but I finally finished it. It Is awesome and I made the queen size so it is huge. But my curves are pretty good. Not perfect but then, only God is perfect so I am good with that.

Oh my word - what a fantastic giveaway!! I have had a couple of proud sewing moments, but my most proud moment this year was my 7-year-old daughter telling me that she shared our family's beliefs about voting with her friends at school - she is a brave and faithful girl and it made me so proud.

simplydelighting said...

My proudest moment in my sewing room was when I finished a throw quilt for my Mom. I just started quilting this year, and after years and years of my Mom making me afghans, I was able to make her a blanket back. It was full of pink fabrics, her favorite color.

Lisa C said...

I have two proud moments. I just started quilting 18 months ago and before that it had been years since I had touched a sewing machine. Last month I made my dad a Christmas tree quilt wiht his grandson's names on each ornament. I hand-stitched those ornaments and they turned out pretty good so that was one moment. The second was yesterday afternoon when I made a scarf out of voile and light flannel. I've only sewn on quilting cotton for the last 18 months and I just wasn't sure how the other fabrics would be to work with and they were great! Love the scarf!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

My proudest moment was when I completed my first quilt block. I've wanted to quilt for years, and I finally started this year.

What a neat idea.
Proudest sewing moment of the year - making my self a skirt! Actual wearable clothing. It was great.

That book is on my wishlist. My proudest moment was probably today when I FMQ'd my largest quilt yet.

My proudest moment in the sewing room was in March of this year. You see, my sewing room was all packed up when I moved from Michigan to New Hampshire. In March, a room in my basement was re-done to house my sewing room! It was like being back among old friends. I haven't stopped sewing since!

Thanks for the giveway!

I made 2 twin size quilts, a baby quilt, and a lap quilt. Not bad since I just learned to quilt last year!

I like your blog!
And it's a good question. For me it was completing the right quilt for the right person.

My proudest moment was finishing my FIRST EVER QUILT. The rest of my sewing has just gotten better and better, but this was definately a highlight this year.

I was super proud when I finished a quilt this summer that I designed and quilted with 3 different patterns I 'd never done before.
