Such A Tease

Did anyone ever tease you in school? We've all been teased, and when it happened it wasn't always fun... but sometimes the person that did the teasing might have done it because they actually liked you. Pause... hmmm, with that being said, what do you think about just a little teasing today? I'm certainly hoping that this is the kind of teasing that you like!

I am in the home stretch of completing my first pattern and hope to share it next week! (eekk!) On such an endeavor, there is always so much behind the scenes things that have to be done before hitting that official launch button. On one hand it's a great feeling of satisfaction to be so far, but what that actually means is that I have been on the computer a lot more than at the sewing machine these days. On the plus side, my EQ7 program and I have gotten to know each other quite well, but as with all relationships, there are some days that you like each other and some days that you don't.

This is my first quilt to be quilted by someone else. Just look at the amazing quilting that Iva at Schnigschag Quilts and More did on my quilt... absolutely stunning, don't you think? Another first is that this is the first backing that I have not pieced. Somehow when I thought about how I wanted to finish this quilt, there were no questions asked... this Tula Pink "Freefall" wideback fabric was the ONLY thing that in my mind was the perfect fit.

So, for the official status of things: Quilt is quilted? - check. First draft is finished? - check. Paper pieicng templates finished? - check? Binding and photos are planned for this week and I still am working on some shop issues... I can see the light at the end of the tunnel... can you?

Linking up to Let's Bee Social.


  1. You ARE a tease! Can't wait to really see! BTW, your woodland quilt is beautiful!

  2. You are a tease indeed, but since the tease photo includes a gorgeous macro of a flower, I suppose you are forgiven. Besides... I think you like us?! ;) This is such a lovely quilt (from what I can see) and I can't WAIT for the reveal! I do love the quilting, too... it all looks so beautiful. Yay!

  3. Squeeeal!!! Congratulations! How exciting (and stressful) for you :-)
    (even though it's paper pieced, I would have pattern tested for ya ;-)

  4. How exciting Allison! I know how much work is involved so congratulations on achieving such accomplishment!! I look forward to seeing what you've got up your sleevešŸ˜Š

  5. Can't wait for the big reveal. What a treat not having to piece a backing or quilt it yourself. A little luxury that I am sure I will avail myself of one day.

  6. Wow, the quilting really looks great on the back. So curious about the whole quilt!
