A mini one that is!
I FINALLY finished the Hawaiian quilt kit that I picked up at the Maui Quilt shop this summer while on vacation. I may not have touched my sewing machine over Christmas Break, but I did get my hand finishes done!
It was supposed to be a throw pillow cover for my studio, but then I realized that it was really too big for my chair-and-a-half and that I didn't have any other room that it would "fit" in.
So for now, I just made it a mini quilt. All 21 square inches of it.
I am actually pretty happy that I stuck to my guns on this one and did it without a sewing machine whatsoever.
It is COMPLETELY done by hand.
Needle turn applique
It has given me a new found respect to the ladies that do large quilts by hand.
I will never have the patience or endurance to do it!
First off, my stitch length is not even and, frankly, has much to be desired!
But I am happy!
Other works in progress?
Long arm practice quilt
Is done!! I finished the binding right before 2012. Nothing really special. ALL 40x 40 inch crisp and white muslin.
After thinking about it, it is a great tablecloth for the summer or even the winter months.
I had to keep it because we all gave the Ole Betsy a spin on it....even the Baby Button had to "touch" it. He is actually pretty fascinated by the machine. Actually, all of the boys are enamored with her. Maybe some quilt boys in the making?
I practiced loops
and small intricate
And UFO on the agenda?
This Christmas Quilt HERE.
I have the fabrics about 50% cut out.
I will finish cutting and starting piecing TODAY! I am taking a wee break from the New Year Organization plan.
I can't take it anymore....2 weeks without touching my sewing machine is starting to eat at me!
Off to see what everyone else is doing at:
