Last week I wrote about my first experience at Quilt Market in Minneapolis and some of the projects I felt inspired to get finished up soon. Well, despite being away more than home the last two weeks, I have managed to make a bit of progress on some of those on my list.
I started quilting my Eclipse mini quilt. Disclaimer: I am not a great home-machine quilter, and this is the type of quilt I usually send to a pro (because I love it and don’t want to ruin it), but I decided this was small enough that I should practice my quilting a bit with it. I am still sticking with straight lines echoing the curves and stars, and I love how it looks so far. The lines are not perfectly straight, but they do give such a cool texture to a quilt. I love making mini quilts for the sense of instant gratification.
Binding! Check that one off my list thanks to my sweet mother. She stayed at my house with Cleo last weekend while we were all away and hand-stitched the binding on my next quilt for Quilt Now Magazine. This pretty is heading off to the UK very soon. I did work on this pattern and another on my flights, so I am feeling great about my progress toward making some finishes before starting some new things.
What are you working on? Are you finishing or starting?
