Hey, remember when I didn’t post for like 3 months over the biggest crafting time of year? Me neither. Let’s just pretend that didn’t happen. Great.
In other news of inactivity and procrastination… 10 bajillion years ago I started a quilt as part of the Road To Spring quilt-along. I got as far as this picture:
That is the last I ever posted to the group.
I did actually finish the quilt top. I learned a lot about what not to do. My fabrics were wrong as was a lot of my technique. The Road to Spring quilt called for free motion quilting but I knew I wasn’t up to that. So the quilt top just sat. After my quilting class – and really learning how to do the quilting part and binding – I wanted to practice those skills. And there was my old quilt top just waiting 🙂
I found some nice backing fabric at the local Cat’s Pajamas sale and used scraps from the front to get the width right.
I also made the binding out of a yellow solid I have had around for a while. I haven’t measured it yet but it’s definitely a throw/baby blanket type size. Now just to figure out who to give it to…
