A finished quilt!!!!!
Thursday, December 16, 2021
I'm not sure where my quilting mojo had gone, but it seemed to have been gone for quite a long time. (There are other blog posts about this quilt.) I think that Covid had something to to with it. Every month for about a year prior to Covid, I had attended a quilt night at a quilt shop I really enjoy shopping at. The night was from 5-11:00, and included dinner. You could bring whatever project you were working on and get help with it, use the large tables, irons, etc. I think this simple night once a month kept me really going on some of my projects because I would prepare things to bring with me to the quilting night. Well, the quilting night was scheduled for March 20th, about a week after everything shut down in Massachusetts. This was the quilt I had been working on during those Friday nights, and I seemed to just kind of stop working on it or any other quilt for a long time. I would pick up a project every once in a while, but nothing with any regularity or enthusiasm. Finally finishing this has really gotten me back on track! Usually I tend to finish projects seasonally, but with this I'm not worried about that! There are some mistakes in it where I wasn't paying attention to the direction of the fabric, which I am okay with. I quilted it on my domestic machine, which was the first time on this machine for quilting, and I love how it turned out. I am also really happy with the binding, and while the quilt is not perfect, I am so, so happy that this quilt is completed!!!!
