Remember that gorgeous quilt top I finished a couple of weeks ago?
Well, given my usual form of being able to finish a quilt top and have it quilted and bound within a week, this one has stalled.
I did manage to make the backing for it - which I ADORE. The amazing blue spot print is from my local Spotlight. I love how it pops. I also pieced in a few leftover jelly roll strips for interest.
I also started quilting it. In fact, I got half way through it before I had to pack it up to prepare food for my family, who for some reason do not stop wanting to be fed, even when I am in the midst of quilting? What's with that?
Anywho, I am half way through quilting this baby, and I just haven't gotten back to it. Yet. I started and unpicked four times before settling on this organic version of a baptist fan (I'm sticking with that description ok?). And it was actually very hard work pushing and pulling the quilt through. Soooooo, I need to rev myself up to sit down and get the other half done. Sigh.
And that's it for W.I.P.'s! Whilst I was stalling on this finish, I did however get a couple more cushions finished for my BLOG HOP!!!! Yes, you heard correctly. In case you missed my announcement last night, I am hosting a blog hop - check out all the details HERE. And get involved people! There's prizes! PRIZES! Can you tell I'm excited??
I'm linking up with W.I.P. Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced - You can too!
