I finished this lovely quilt a few days ago, later than planned. I lost track of a days and was waiting for the binding. It’s all good. It’s a sweet charity quilt for one of the Hands2Help groups.
Anyway, I started this last summer when Julie at The Crafty Quilter ran this quilt along. I knew I was busy and I did it as a leader/ender project; but something stopped me. I didn’t think it was anything big, but I was puzzled. I started sewing again, and then, I figured out why I was behind. I didn’t have the fabric to really finish, so I stopped piecing. Note to self – a note to self would have been helpful for when I picked it up a few months later. Gheez.
I learned a few new things to work on perfecting with my quilting…always a goal when I do these kinds of projects. ProStitcher has had some education videos on line during this time and I learned a little more about doing and edge 2 edge design and marking a stitch line for in the ditch. Precision is something I will need to work on, but I am getting there.
Another goal, when I participate in a QAL or SAL is to used up fabric that I have. My only real difficulty is that I had no binding. I ordered some, another part of the delay. So, my OMG for April is done and that is good.
There is a great line up of designers doing demonstrations this week. 15 minutes is the limit so they won’t be a time suck, but I am sure there will be lots of things to learn. I will post the schedule daily. And, yes, I am on Friday at 4 on Facebook and 4:30 on Instagram. The presentation will be the same so catching me in one is plenty!!
