Quilt Day


I spent Monday afternoon pin basting my scrap quilt to the batting and backing. It took a few hours but I was so happy to have it done. I never look forward to basting but it's so wonderful to have it behind you!


I already started to quilt it. I couldn't wait! I'm just quilting a simple meander. I feel with all the different fabrics, this will work best.

                         

I also started sewing together the first row of the Farmer's Wife 1930's Quilt. I chose a white on white tone fabric to set the squares. It looks really pretty! It's impossible to see in the picture but I really like how it looks! The process is slow since the directions are minimal. It may take awhile but I think I'm really going to love it when it's done.


                                

Here's my design wall. The row I put together is on the far left. I'm really loving the way it's coming out! I cant wait to see how it looks when it's done.

I'll be working for the next few days so I doubt I'll get much done. That's okay! I had a fun quilt day today!

    1. Thanks, Astrid! I enjoyed making the scrap quilt. I love being able to use up those scraps! The Farmer's Wife was not easy! The blocks are so small and so many pieces! I'm lucky I finished 42 blocks! There are 99 total. That was enought for me!

    1. Thank you so much! I wish I didn't have to work but I have no choice! It's not good that work takes away from quilting!!

Here's the vintage quilt with the binding all attached! I can't believe this quilt is finished. It felt like a privilege to me ...
