I have been quiet here on the blog, but trust me, the sewing machine has not! Since finishing all of my old knitting projects…new ones have now been started…I tackled some of my unfinished quilting projects. In 3 days, I quilted 5 quilts! I am most proud of myself! I told myself at the beginning of this pregnancy that I had until week 30 to do all my quilting. Week 30=too big to be standing over a quilting frame, sore feet, and killer back. I am now at week 29 so I am just rolling in before my deadline. Yay! Plus, I felt great doing it.
The first one I quilted was my new “Anything Goes” sample. It is wonderful in flannels! I can’t wait to use it next winter. This is an easy pattern for any skill level quilter and truly looks good with any fabric…hence “Anything Goes.” Size–Throw (66″x72″)
For the quilting I did some loops with holly leaves/berries. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out as I was doing it, but I find that it always looks better when you pull it off the frame and look at the entire piece. With quilting you just have to breathe and carry on calmly!
And here is a shot of our wee family on Easter Sunday. A celebration of life indeed!
