Back in October I showed you a new project I started from this book:
I had signed up for a "block of the month" program, which is more accurately a mini quilt of the month. And this one called "Midnight Twinkle" was the first kit. I had every intention of just zipping it out and getting it finished...but as we all know, that doesn't always happen. LOL I had issues with the lighting at my "spot" on the living room couch, I wasn't happy with my stitches, etc, etc. I had it about 1/2 finished and it sat untouched for many months....
Finally six months later, it's done!! I love it! My blanket stitches aren't perfect around those one inch pieces, but even I don't see those individual imperfections anymore...I just see it as a whole with all it's wooly goodness!
I just did a simple machine quilting...I knew it wouldn't show up much no matter if it was hand quilted or machine quilted.
I think a lot of us go through phases of what we find motivating and enjoyable to work on...and this is an example of that. I do love to work with wool and I'm itching to start another project!
I think it fits beautifully right there on my wall! I moved that green and red one down to make room for Midnight Twinkle.
Now on to the next one...hope it doesn't take me 6 months to finish! :)
