I have to say that this first experience with making the real quilt and quilting was a very long learning process. My biggest mistake was to make all two sides in patchwork, which leaded me toward getting some not so nice quilting areas on the back of the quilt. I think that my sandwiching process was a bit wrong from the start, but now I now what to do next time. Another big mistake was to do some free motion quilting with bubble stitches doing some sort of pebbles first on the stripes (white calligraphy print) and only than to apply the meandering stitches to the larger patchwork areas. I thought that it would be easier that way, but now I know that I should always start from one corner, even if changing the free motion quilting designs. I have to say that E. Hartman's "The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker" book helped me a lot while figuring out some things and I am strongly recommending it.

I also think that the best thing of the finished piece that makes quite a big difference with sewing garment pieces is the quilted texture. I just love the way it feels under my hand, the touch of it. It's precious. I just can't wait to make another quilt and to challenge myself with some new endeavors. Hope you'll like it too;)

Great Looking.It's not easy for me to find pretty and useful leather hobo bags, I like bags on cwmalls.com, not expensive but they are stylish and in good quality.

Health officials or health care providers who are using antibody tests need to use the most accurate test they can find and might need to test people twice, the CDC said in the new guidance.

The young man admitted to the Newton-Wellesley hospital in Massachusetts was clearly very ill -- so ill that he needed the help of a ventilator to breathe.

The doctors treating him were certain he was infected with the new coronavirus. It was mid-April -- the height of the outbreak in the Boston area. The patient had trouble breathing and had other symptoms.

But the first swab test for coronavirus came back negative. A second test, 24 hours later, came up negative, too. So they tried a different approach.
