When I started my star quilt I thought that it would be a summer-long project. Back in the day (ha ha), I'd whip a quilt out in no time, but considering the amount of sewing I get these days with little miss get-into-everything I knew that wasn't going to happen. Much to my surprise, I'm making pretty good progress!
Over the weekend I managed to finish my quilt top, make the back (pieced), get the quilt pin basted, AND start quilting. Are you impressd? I sure am!!
The best part was that it wasn't a monumental feat. I kept my machine out and sewed a little here and there when I got the chance. There was lots of cooking, baby wrangling, and crochet too, but I'll save that for another post. I did make a few conscious decisions to ingnore the laundry and some dust bunnies, but you've got to make sacrifices every now and then, right?
I think I'm most impressed with the back. I used every single bit of the extra front pieces that I cut in error. I love the look. Here she is, a little bit unrolled for ya. I'm only barely into the quilting, and now I remember why I don't quilt on this machine. It's a pain in the a$$!! I need to spend some time upstairs with Richelle (while she's still up there) because she knows how to quilt. I miss her speed!
And while I was in the grove, I worked on a little something new. I'm in the very beginning stages now, but I like where it's going. It's weekends like this that keep me going through the week:)
