My Blog List
I'm thinking it might be a gift, but my son thinks it should just stay here on the chair where I put it to take a picture. ha!
I just did straight line quilting, about an inch apart, with a lavender-ish Aurifil thread, and I love the colored thread, and Aurifil.
That's the first time I had used it. And usually I quilt everything with white. But it turned out well, and... I didn't even make any tucks in the backing! I think that's a first, too. ;) I'm not so good with the basting.. sigh. Instead of using spray, I used pins this time.
I hope to have more finishes soon, especially in February. I'm going to be joining in "Drop and Give Me Twenty" over at my friend Beth's place, Quilting Hottie Haven. It's a yearly event, and I think it might be her third year running it now. Go check it out. :) If you'd like to pledge to sew for 20 min. every day in the month of February, you can be eligible for all sorts of prizes, and there are all sorts of ways to increase your chances of winning!
So here's my entry pledge: "I, Kelli Fannin, pledge to sew, quilt, stare at or roll around in fabric, instagram about sewing or quilting, online fabric shop, daydream about finishing a quilt, or any other quilty-like activity for at least 20 min. every day for the month of February." ;) But really, I will sew for at least 20 min. a day. :)
Thanks for dropping in! Happy Weekend!
Off to work on something else.. maybe a new pattern coming soon! Some ideas are cooking! :)
What Kati said! How cool are those giant cogs!
Your quilt is lovely, I love the grey and the scrappy binding is perfect.i don't know that I can commit to 20 minutes each day. I WANT to sew for 20 minutes every day, but I think my husband would feel a little left out. Good luck, though!
Where did you GET those cogs???? I am lusting! Mr QH would DIE of JOY if we decorated in old farm machinery coolness! (Yours may not be from old farm machinery, but ours would of course have to be.)
Quilt way cuter with awesome borders. And it's Art Gallery, so I love that too.
I would get a lot more done if I sewed for just 20 minutes a day, but alas I know it will not happen! My time is just too demanded of by others, like my work and three kids. Your jelly roll race quilt looks great with the borders. The cog type shapes on the fabric remind me of train wheels, and match the cogs on the wall in your lounge room perfectly!
