I’m still busy working on my long-time unfinished projects. I really want to get them all done before starting anything new (ha-ha).
I’ve been slowly quilting my Twiddletails “Geese in the Forest” Quilt. I first blogged about this quilt on April 21st, 2010, so I think it’s time to finish it, already! It’s going to feel like quite an accomplishment once it is done.
It was my very first experience with paper-piecing and I used all vintage bed linens for the geese. The background is supposed to be all Kona White, but I accidentally mixed some Kona Snow in there, so now it’s an artistic choice (at least, that’s my story!).
I’m doing wavy lines with my walking foot all over the quilt. I am in LOVE with this type of quilting right now, and I can’t wait to see how it looks once it’s all washed and crinkled. I originally started off hand-quilting bishop’s fans, but after the quilt sat in a bag for 6 months, I realized I would NEVER finish it and that I should just do machine quilting. It has a lot of layers and seams too, so it’s not the easiest thing to sew through (even on my machine). I saw this quilt on flickr and I knew THAT was the quilting that I wanted to do.
I’m really hoping to be posting this as a finish next week!
