The quilt I started in January is almost finished. I have pieced the second half together, basted it, quilted it, and now I am making the binding and once that’s done, and sewed, that’s it! I am all kinds of impressed with myself. It is definitely not a perfect quilt, but I’ve done this all by hand and with the help of online tutorials, so I think it’s ok to be a bit impressed. I was expecting lots to go wrong and have to rip out stitches and all sorts, but actually it’s been pretty smooth. I am sure I’m jinxing myself now, but never mind.
Who wants to see bad iPhone photos of the quilt so far?
This was pre-basting.
And during the quilting. I may have stabbed myself a million times doing this.
Here’s an attempt at a close up after quilting.
And its current state.
So there you go. I think it’s safe to say I’ve got the quilting bug. However, my next attempt will be much smaller. As much as I’ve enjoyed this, it’d be nice to get one finished in less than six months.
