#10 for December is quilted. I quilted my 5 yard Map quilt freehand – a less swirly version of Dwirling than I usually do. I wanted to give the quilt a topographical feel and Dwirling is perfect for that. It’s another one of the 5 yard quilts – I got my pattern free with a fabric pack but I found a version of it online on Pinterest if you’re interested in the pattern.
I had to take a break and turn the machine off for a bit – we had a thunderstorm with a tornado warning – usually not a problem I have to deal with in December!
I used the time to trim another quilt and get a binding cut. I was kind of shocked to see I hadn’t cut a binding for the brown Sharon inspired HeartStrings quilt. That’s very unusual for me but luckily it was one I pieced here and I was able to find fabric used in the quilt and cut it. Now I’m going to get it machine stitched on and ready for hand stitching tonight.
We are expecting a Nor’easter snow storm starting tonight with 12 inches or so. South towards NYC should get up to 18 inches. Good for skiers. Very cold last night-in the teens now and going down. Cold and crisp. I hope snow is still here for a white Christmas. I love seeing lights reflecting off the snow.
Love seeing your quilts.
Yikes! No quilting in a T-storm! No fun when those blow threw and change the course of our day.
I sure love your quilts, they are gorgeous! I like to hand stitch my binding down too but can’t do many in a row due to arthritis. I still haven’t perfected machine stitched binding but I’m working on it. I usually stitch while watching TV in the evening, it’s very relaxing.
Another one and it is fantastic. Even though you never ask a guest if they would like another of something because it highlights that you are keeping count, here I am intentionally pointing out another fantastic finish! I haven’t been keeping count but am impressed by the enormity of your undertakings! Thanks for sharing all your beautiful quilts.
Wow this is beautiful and your freehand is amazing 👌 hope all is okay with the storm.
