Did I see this coming or what! I only managed to complete one project from my Q2 2019 FAL list! The weather the last few months has been pretty nice, at least in my area of the UP. So I have been outside and enjoying the weather while it is here. Plus I started training for a half marathon in October, so that has really forced me to be outside and not at my sewing machine all the time.
I love a quilt that is made entirely of scraps! All of the Bonnie & Camille fabric came from my Vice Versa B&C sampler quilt I made a few years ago. And like most of my quilt tops this one sat around for awhile.
I've been getting the itch to try my hand at hand quilting. Especially after watching Suzy Quilts video on how to hand quilt. I figured, now is the time to give it a go. I LOVE hand quilting! Sure it takes a little longer, but I love the meditative quality of rocking your needle back and forth. Plus I can sit with my family and watch movies or TV together. Plus now that it is warmer, I can sit on my porch and quilt!
Sure my hand stitching isn't perfect, but I don't care! The only way to get better at something is to keep trying. Of course, now I am looking at all of my quilt tops and trying to figure out ones to add hand quilting too.
Now I only have 4 quilt tops to finish! My pile is getting smaller and I'm trying really hard not to start new quilts before I finish these. (Minus the wedding quilt I decided I had to do) I think by the end of the year I should have all of my quilt tops finished and ready for use or gifting!
