I hoped to get all seven of my quilted-but-not-bound quilts finished by the end of the year and I made it! The final one is a Broken Bricks scrappy quilt pattern.
This is actually the very first one I made back in January, when it started out as my first leader-ender project. I quilted it back in October and it's been hanging around waiting for the binding, which is my least favorite part.
I believe I used Quilter's Dream Green batting in this one, which is actually my favorite of their battings because it is made entirely from recycled bottles. I just used MaxiLock serger thread in turquoise on this one because it is inexpensive and works fine on my Handiquilter.
I quilted it with the Dolce E2E pantograph designed by Christy Dillon. I really love this one too!
I think I am now done sewing for a few days. I've spent so much time in the past two weeks at my sewing machine that I'm tired of it. Time for a break. It will give me a good chance to think about my plans for January. I think I am overdue for a tidy up; my room is such a mess it's getting hard to work in there. I'd also really like to figure out a good system to organize scraps. They've overrun my current system and it's no longer working so it's time to look around for other options.
Well, I hope you all have an enjoyable New Years' holiday. I'll be hanging out with my feet up, not sewing, but possibly some ripping. I have some big quilts that I've decided to take apart and make smaller quilts. LOL
All 7 of the quilts bound? That's wonderful, a good way to start 2023. Enjoy your sewing machine break and happy planning for 2023!ReplyDelete
Congrats on reaching your end of year goal. Love the colors in Broken Bricks, it's lovely. My plan for New Years Day is a sewing room clean up. Mine needs a good one too.ReplyDelete
Wow! Congratulations on finishing 7 quilts! Cleaning up a sewing room can be so refreshing, and revealing! At least for me when forgotten quilt patterns etc show up!ReplyDelete
