So I’ve decided my re-entrance into the quilting world is going to be all about simple quilts. Nothing too fancy and complicated. I don’t have the patience for that! I like using fabric from the same line. It saves so much time. This is from Lori Holt’s line, Polka Dot Stitches.
I’ve also decided small quilts are way more fun and far less of a commitment. I’m going to let beautiful fabric designs do the talking for me rather than intricate piecing. I have a deep appreciation for fabric designers.
I’ve also decided I don’t absolutely have to have an end use in mind. I like the look of several quilts rolled up in a basket and maybe that’s where this one will end up. Who knows?
And here’s an up-close and personal look at the faux piped binding I started using a few months ago. All rolled up and pressed so nice. It’s kind of a shame to unroll it. Simple to do and makes it possible to completely machine stitch the binding!
See my stitching in the ditch? It isn’t perfect but if you don’t look so close you won’t notice where I was obviously thinking about Paris or something instead of the task at hand. Love the contrast.
On to the next one which I already have pieced and machine quilted except I’m ripping out the machine quilting and redoing it. I never do anything that doesn’t require a rip-out at some point. Seriously.
