I’m pretty excited about my first quilty finish for 2017.
I’m on a mission to bust through my fabric stash this year and this represents a good start!
This quilt was the result of some pre-cut squares I have been hanging on to for WAY too long. It was such an easy project, I’m not sure why I didn’t tackle it sooner.
I debated for a while over how to finish the quilting once I had the top done and it was all sandwiched together. There were some great suggestions on Facebook and Instagram (yay for the quilting community!!). In the end I decided to go with my favourite, tried-and-true straight line quilting with the walking foot.
I used no less than six different colours of Aurifil thread and straight-line quilted randomly throughout the quilt.
One wonders when they have done enough quilting.
I know I put it aside to stare at it for a while. Then picked it up and quilted some more.
I’m quite happy with the final result.
Do you have any sewing or knitting goals for 2017?
What’s your go-to quilting method?
