Christmas Quilt Update & Feeling Sad

Remember this post, I worked on the quilt until the beginning of 2013. This quilt is hand sewn.  I took the pic below November 2012. At the beginning of 2013 I put the quilt away to give my right hand and shoulder some time to  rest. The first hundreds hexagons I cut out by hand. The quilt is sewn like a puzzle, working on the quilt I realize that I could work on individual sections and then attach it to the main quilt. In order to do that the hexagons needed to be precise. Sooo, I bought the Cricut mini, program it and  500 laser cut paper hexagons were cut in less than 30 minutes. All the supplies and fabric for this project were stored in a large tote except the quilt. Today makes one year I cannot find the quilt, I don't know where it is, Last summer I looked everywhere, I did the same last winter and today I came home from work and rip the sewing cave apart. I cannot find it. The quilt is a lot larger than the picture below.
I feel sad because so much handwork went into this quilt. Lesson learned no more UNFINISHED PROJECTS. Make it or trash it.   Hubby suggested to cut out more hexagon, half the size of the original hexagon and start another quilt. If I ever find the quilt it will become a wall hanging.

All by hand?? AMAZING! You'll find it when and where you least expect!

It's going to turn up when you least expect it. I'm quite sure it someplace "safe".

What a beautiful quilt, I hope you find it. It will probably turn up when you're not even looking for it.

You quilt like my mom. I been trying to encourage her to sew some of it on the machine. No can do.

I really sorry you can't find you quilt. And I know it's very frustrating. I hope it turns up soon.

Done Burda 6727- The Coat

Hello,
The Amazing Coat Sew Along- The Wearable Muslin I started this coat (wearable muslin) last year as part of the Amazing Coat Sew Along. In the end I got sick with the flu and was unable to meet the deadline. The coat was done, all that was left to do was to hem the coat, add snaps and large button. The alterations to the pattern was documented in my previous post about the coat. Thanks to my sewing sister I worked on the coat last weekend and completed it. I had to wait for my new photographer (daughter) because the hobby was fired. I did a forward thrust shoulder adjustment, and I did not rotate the sleeves cap. The folds in the sleeves were a result of not rotating the sleeves cap. the biceps need mores ease.The armholes were lowered, as you can see I need to adjust the armholes a bit more. This is a great pattern,  I will adjust the pattern because I am planning to make another coat in the near future. 
Even though the coat is a test garment (muslin) I am going to wear it until t…

Butterick 6419 and 5941

My DD attended a spring fling event on April 21. The color for the event was blue, anything blue. She asked me to sew a blouse in blue with a large bow at the neck and palazzo’s pant in silver. She Choose Butterick 6419. I started with pant, the fabric was bought at Joann’s for 19.99/yd. Thank heavens for 50% coupon; I bought 3 yds. There is enough left over to make a blouse. I use my TNT pants (Butterick5941) made a muslin, extended the front crotch length and tweak the fit in the hips. I use the muslin as the pattern to cut the fashion fabric. The fabric took me out of my comfort zone, because of the appearance on the right side (liquid silver) , however, it was a knit and it sewed like butterrrrr. Next was the blouse; I did a muslin, there was minor adjustments in the back because of her narrow back and a swayback. I did not do a swayback adjustment in the muslin, instead I did the adjustment on the fashion fabric when I sewed the center back seam (I learned the technique in a class…
