Another finish! I love how finishing off a project that has sat around the sewing room (mostly finished) give you a sense of accomplishment and the energy to keep going on other projects. This pillow was that project for me. It is an orphan block from a quilt (that is sitting waiting to be quilted) that I decided would make a good pillow – then it sat. I have been working on several new projects for various people recently and feeling like I am not getting anything done (especially with a new baby in the house), so I needed something that I would be able to finish in a couple of naps.
I decided to practice my paisley quilting on this pillow, as I love the look but am still not confident enough to do it on a quilt. I think it turned out fairly well, and while it was time consuming it didn’t take as long as I had initially thought.
Now that I feel like I have accomplished something I feel ready to tackle the rest of the quilts that are waiting with deadlines that are coming up soon!
This is my third finish for this quarter’s Finish a-long 2014 (original list here)! Woo hoo!
I am working at finishing up the top for the mystery quilt that I am doing with my local Modern Quilt Guild. I have now finished all the individual blocks and am getting ready to put them together! I can’t wait to see how this all comes together!
I have also started cutting into my Micheal Miller Fabric for the Modern Quilt Guild fabric challenge. It is such pretty fabric that it took a bit for me to be able to cut into it, but I am liking how the design is coming together. This is the next quilt on my “must finish soon” list as the contest ends June 23, yikes!
