One of the quilts is 3 years old and I don't much care for it anymore. It was made when I was going through my Orange phase. So let's get that one out of the way first.
here. Please note her blog post was from 2010. That's about when I made this. If this quilt were any older, I would have to photograph it laying over a walker.
The pattern was really fun, kind of a stack 'n whack quilt, if you remember those.
Not sure which method I prefer, but I do know they both take some practice. I managed to produce a plethora of wonky stitches, resulting in the judicious use of my seam ripper and swearing of epic proportions. However, even going very slowly on the machine, it's still faster than sewing it down by hand. Yes, I will make this work.
Yes, that orange keeps coming back to haunt me.
So yesterday I dug it out, finished up some rows of straight quilting, and added the binding.
I'm not mad at it anymore. I think it's kinda cute!
The other fabric in this quilt, which played nicely, was a charm pack of Hello Luscious. To check out the machine binding tutorials I used go look at this or that.
I must say, I'm relieved to get these behind me.
