I’m at my artist’s retreat! Hurray!!! Really we are visiting my folks, but it’s non-stop chatter about hobbies, making/creating. Being here totally feeds my soul and renews me so I can return home with a new perspective.
Some projects made their way into my luggage. I finished sewing the rows together on this little number.
One of the blocks inadvertently got sewn together wrong. I told myself at the time it was fine and would leave the funny configuration in the quilt. Then I stopped working on it…for 43 weeks. The block got ripped out, sewn back together properly and a quilt top was born!
Scrappy low-ish volume backgrounds are where it’s at for me! I’m not done with them, or striped binding and spiral quilting. Which may be the way I finish this quilt as well.
Was 2015 the year of the ‘chunky plus’ quilt? I mean, not the only quintessential 2015 quilt, but one of them?
Weekly sewing round-up:
- Chunky Plus quilt
- embroidered pouch
- 5 more tiny nine patch pinnies
- binding on zippered case
