I finished the little quilt from the Sew Mama! sew-along. This was not something I needed to do, but since I already had some cute 3 1/2″ squares cut, I couldn’t resist.
I used scraps and pieces from good old Sandy Klop’s American Jane collection – mostly the line Look and Learn (much of which I got back in December for super clearance) or scraps from previous quilts.
Here is the back.
I am such a chicken about quilting with my own machine – hence the grid instead of stippling. I can stipple on a Gammel, but I am not good at it. I need to get up the guts to just try it at home. But I’ll use some old, junky practice stuff to do it first.
I had the hardest time getting a decent picture. Part of the problem is the border gets lost – it’s too light with not enough contrast. So maybe I’ll try another version with a darker border or a dark stop border in between.
And in other exciting news, the Vita-Mix demo-guy was at Costco today. (Affectionately known as “the smoothie man” by my kids.) I love that guy. And one day I WILL buy one of his wares.
