This week I’ve been sewing as much as my back will let me, since I don’t think it would be any better to be out slipping around in the cold and snow. The Brights quilt took FOREVER to quilt, it seemed. Some of that was probably short spats of sewing, some of it was ripping out
mistakes experiments, and some was that it has a lot of quilting. It’s all finished now, except for being trimmed and bound, and I’m happy with it. Maybe I can show it on Friday.
On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, many of us on Twitter made our own versions of the Disappearing Pinwheel quilt from the Missouri Star Quilt Company, here and here. I’m using large scale florals, and switching out the centers. The background doesn’t photograph very well, but it’s a light peach, toward the orange side. I’ve completed a dozen blocks, and it won’t take long to finish the rest. I’m not completely sure what I want to do with it, but it has been fun to work on with folks from all around the world. Here are a few photos, and it’s worth checking back to see more. Our fabrics choices are very different!
Hope you’re making the progress you would like, and staying warm, if you’re in the eastern US!
I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
