Today is #NationalSewingMachineDay and this is Barbara my @janomeamerica Memory Craft 8900. 😍 She came home with me after #QuiltCon 2015 in Austin and she's my absolute favorite sewing purchase to date. . . I have a handful of other machines including my original tiny Brother sewing machine and two vintage Singer machines, but Barbara is my ride or die everyday machine. . . Full disclosure, this is an old picture, my sewing space is much messier today. 😂
It has been a hot minute since I've done a #FridayIntroductions post... Actually, I don't think I've ever officially done one, so I thought it was time since I've lost and gained a few followers over the past couple of weeks. . . ▪️ Hi! I'm Hilary with one L and souvenir shops never have items with my name on them. 😂 ▪️ I'm easily amused by simple things like finding a feature on my phone camera that automatically takes the picture when I smile. That's how I took this picture. 😊 ▪️ Quilting and sewing are my jam, and that's probably why you're here. 😉 ▪️ I made my shirt and I'm excited to be a #SeamworkAmbassador this year. 👕 ▪️ I love baking and Disney. 🍪🏰 ▪️ I'm attempting to be a plant mom, and up until this Spring I've never been able to keep any plants alive. 🌻 . . I try to be as open and genuine as possible. Life is messy and I am nowhere near perfect, and that is 100% okay! ❤❤❤
My boys! ❤ A little #TBT to last Sunday when I drove the kids to my parent's house, and we stopped for gas and a bathroom break at @bucees. They both loved that Buc-ee was wearing a mask and wanted to take a picture with him, and Sam was not a fan of the sun shining in his eyes. 😎 . . We have been mostly quarantined at home since mid-March, and this is only the second time we've gone to visit my parents. Which is super weird because we normally see them at least 3 times a month. . . Unfortunately, we're going to go back to being more conservative and staying home now that COVID cases are starting to spike again in Texas. I might need to make a few more masks since this is the new normal for a while. ________________________________________ #Sewing #Sew #Maker #Sewer #Sewist #Quilter #MakersGonnaMake #CreateEveryday #ByHilaryJordan #MakeAllTheThings #FaceMasks #HandmadeFaceMasks #Texas #Bucees #JamboPresets

Finish number 2 of the week is my #BetsyRossQuilt! ❤️🤍💙 The pattern by @katiemalandesigns releases today! 🇺🇸 . . I made the throw sized version using fabrics pulled from my stash. The red is a really old #ModaFabric print that I bought at @lonestarquiltworks 7+ years ago, the blue is @tulapink True Colors, and the white is @robertkaufman metallic Essex linen. . . Katie's pattern is wonderful! It comes in a throw size and a twin size, plus she gives instructions for a classic three color quilt like mine, or a scrappy version. 😍 The instructions are straightforward and easy to follow, plus it didn't require a ton of fabric. . . My original plan was to gift this to my parents but my oldest has claimed it for himself, so they might have to fight him for it. 😂 Swipe to the end to see his adorableness. ________________________________________ #Aurifil #AurifilThread #Quilting #Sewing #Quilt #Sew #Maker #Sewer #Sewist #Quilter #MakersGonnaMake #CreateEveryday #ByHilaryJordan #MakeAllTheThings #KatieMalanDesigns #MemorialDay2020 #BetsyRoss #Patriotic #PatrioticQuilt #RedWhiteAndBlue #StarsAndStripes
