This weekend I finally quilted one of the two finished quilt tops that have been haunting me for a while. You must know the feeling... that little voice at the back of your mind that whispers 'quilt meeeee.... quilt meee... don't start something else QUILT MEEEEE...'
Ok, sometimes it's more of a scream, right?
And in fairness it's often the projects we procrastinate for ages that in the end give us the most satisfaction when finished AND they never take as long as we think they'd do. Weird. Or not.
Made using scraps, little by little, without an initial plan, without worrying about straight seams or wonkiness. Embrace your wonkiness. Wonkiness is good. Trust me.
Quilted with straight(ish) lines, dense. But not too dense.
The reverse is a vintage sheet. Total contrast and I like that. Nobody will see it and it's my private joke.
For the first time I've attached facing to the quilt instead of binding because I'd like to hang it somewhere someday.. I used this brilliant tutorial by Silly Boo Dilly.
And there you have it. Another quilt for the pile. Feels good.
One more to go... but it'll have to wait at the back of my mind for a little longer... things to do and people to see...
