Another Quilt Finished!
You wouldn't think a quilt so small would take 2 or 3 years to finish but it does when you don't work on it! Huh.
This quilt pattern comes from the book Fat Quarter Quilting. I had the top finished quilt a while ago but couldn't decide how I wanted to quilt it and whether I wanted to quilt by machine or hand.
Strange but true: I had this quilt sitting on my design wall for some time. I had photographed it. Then I pulled it out to baste it and noticed that some of the hour glass blocks were facing the wrong way! How did I not notice before? Sometimes I leave mistakes alone but this wasn't a difficult fix and I knew that every time I looked at the quilt, it would irritate me. Much better now!
I had plans to hand quilt this 1/4" inside all the seams but the hand quilting wasn't going well. I ripped out the stitches and made a new quilting plan for machine quilting. Plan B worked. :)
This is Quilt 2 of 4 that I committed to finishing this summer. Back to work on my Tile Quilt and my Improv wall hanging!
