Let's get Acquainted Blog Hop





 {sewing}

Hello! Welcome to {1/4" mark}! I am excited to join {Let's get Acquainted blog hop Fall 2012}. My name is Chase.  I lived in the second coldest state and second coldest city in the U.S. It sounds crazy, but we have found our balance in the cold winter here. Currently I am a MFA student and will received my degree in Spring 2013. At {1/4" mark}, you'll find that I share our {weekending} each week in a very simple way, but full of joy moments in our life here. I also share my sewing projects! I have a little girl and  her nickname is S here! She is a girl who loves adventures, writing, art, and things that she can share with her mama!



{weekending}

How long have I been quilting? 
My first sewing lesson was when I was in college! I didn't take it serious! Later on,  I was inspired by the quilt that was given to me as a college graduation gift. Ever since that I started pay attention to fabric and quilting.  I have never gone back!!!  I have been sewing about 10 years now!  I'd say, I am not as productive as I wish, but I try to find time to sew between schooling and working.

Favorite quilting tips- 
Enjoy each process and each stitch you made! Many of you who have been here know that I love taking process photos of my projects! It is a great way to see the progress of each project! I enjoy the alternative documentation of my sewing projects.

Favorite blogging tips-
Sharing and make it welcoming! 

Favorite fabric- 
This is a tough question! It took me a very long time to find the colors and prints that I enjoy!  Recently, I enjoy bold/ retro colors, small prints, and feedsacks. I also love Japanese fabric!! 

Favorite Children book- 
Stella Luna  { Many of you know that I have Stella, the girl}.

Favorite Music to listen to while quilting- movies to watch while quilting- 
I love watching movies when I saw.  Lately I am watching { From up on Poppy Hill} by Hayto Miyazaki!! Sometimes, I can watch the same movie for all day long!! Never get tired of it!

Binding by machine or hand- 
I bind all my quilts by hands! I never machine binding quilts, but I have machine binding placemats, coasters, etc! Personally, I enjoy the hand binding! The last touch to the quilt make it even more personal! I always have a cup of dark coffee/tea and a great companion snuggled together and watch a great movie.

Here are my tutorials that I written-
