Hey there! Long time, no see! I’ve had to revise my year-long goal of blogging on a weekly basis down to once a month. So here is what I’ve been up to lately…
I finished my Facet+Plus QAL quilt and gifted it…before the baby graduated high school!!!
I found out before purchasing backing and binding that the baby is a girl, so I went with purples to finish it off. And used a light purple for the quilting thread.
And, I finished another baby quilt that will be gifted soon. I saved this one to be the second ever quilt I have longarmed. I have such a wonderful aunty that let me use her longarm machine. My goal in life is to be as gracious, kind and companionate as her.
And my last finish! I started this quilt in 2015 for no reason at all except to pair some fabulous Grunge with fun background fabrics.
Staying with the doing-it-for-fun theme, I decided to try a scrappy rainbow binding.
I chose fabrics in ROYGBIV order and threw in magenta and cyan for good measure. And I really love how magenta bridges the gap between purple and red.
This is my favourite corner of the the quilt. The rainbow colors lined up all by themselves. I used the same figure-8 pantograph along with the same grey thread. There were a few more glitches while quilting this one, but I’m totally in love with it because it’s DONE!!!
