It is Week 21 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and exhaustion almost got the best of me today. I quilted this yesterday and just needed to add the binding, but after fighting a cold all week, I ended up with a migraine today. And let me tell you, it is hard to bind when you can not see the needle on the machine, tee hee hee. I am sure in real marathon's, people feel way worse with only 5 miles to go, so I figured I best suck it up, and not trip so close to the end. And I pushed through and here is Be Fruitful just in the nick of time!!!
And let me tell you, I am so happy it is done because this is one of my "older" waiting around to be quilted quilts ;) I actually made the plan for this quilt back in 2019 using the Be Fruitful block from the Goodness Grows Sampler. I finished the quilt top in April of 2020 and planned to get it quilted right away. Well . . . two years later and it's done!!! And isn't it just so happy :)
And as I said, I wasn't feeling great (colds are no fun) when I quilted this, so I went for a nice and fast finish with all over loose feathers. I just love how fun these are to quilt, I just flow all over the quilt with my little arched feathers :) And you guessed it, 402 for the win on thread choice ;)
Sure hope you're feeling much better! Your feathers are inspiring! I just love how free and floaty they are!!ReplyDelete
So happy you pushed through - though I hope you are feeling better with your cold and migraine - you were a real trooper! This is such a beautiful quilt - and yes, so wonderful to have a stack of quilts waiting, for gifting. That is a real plus! Rooting for you for the last 5 quilts - thumbs up :)!ReplyDelete
Your quilt is adorable! I love the fabrics you used and the feather quilting too. I wish that I had a longarm too as I have many tops waiting to be quilted. I can't afford to pay someone and despise quilting on a DSM.ReplyDelete
I know you said you used your leftovers but if I were to make this quilt (I bought the block pattern) how many fat quarters would I need to make this quilt? And sashing? I found Sugarcreek fq bundle but thought I'd check before I purchased the fabric. JannaReplyDelete
Hi Janna, You would want 16 Fat Quarters and 5 yards Background fabric ;)Delete
