Hi everyone. I'm squeaking in a moment on my bro-in-law's computer to show you what I finished this week! Or, at least one thing. I've been in Salt Lake City's Abravanel Hall for the past few days working on a CD recording with the choir I am in, and in between takes and sound checks I'd quickly work on a few inches of hand-stitching the binding down on this quilt. Luckily it was small :)
This is from the Mod Times Baby Quilt-Along over at Twin Fibers. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be! It helps that it finishes at a smallish baby size. I don't have my table ruler, obviously, right now so I can't measure it... sorry!
The back might look familiar... I used the orange colorway in my zig-zag quilt recently. I love this dot, it is perfect in every single way.
The binding is from the Denyse Schmidt line at JoAnn's. It looks great on the front, but a little busy with the back. And I'm not caring all that much!
It was kind of fun to work on this in the middle of a bunch of sopranos... and, as it turns out, the lovely voice next to me has a mom who works at the Cotton Shop here in Utah, though I'm not sure where. We had a good quilt chat. It does make you a little self-conscious of your work when everyone around wants to look at it closely and you can see all the free-motion flaws. I guess that is one of the things about making your own quilts- the flaws are just part of the charm and the made-with-love-ness.
Well, sorry I've been MIA this week. I've been busy, exhausted, and enjoying every second of it. We'll be back to our regular posting next week!
