Good morning from a lovely sunny morning. It is finally warming up now after winter had returned last week
So, another week has gone by and it is time for my phone challenge. This week we get to showcase our macro photos.
But no editing today. A couple of weeks ago I posted about my bucket list and top of the list was this quilt. Or should I say quilt pieces. Well for a week I was on a mission to finish it. It helped to get over the tiredness a bit as I could see that I was really going somewhere with it. That always help when you can see the end in sight.
So I did things my way, as I do and hand stitched the borders, and then hand quilted them. I found it to be very heavy so it was easier on me to hand quilt it.
Then it was trimmed. Ok, a couple of photos in this post aren’t exactly macro. I had taken these photos for Instagram to show my progress.
Then it was hand stitching the binding. I am not sure I like looking at my fingers so close up. A bit freaky.
One finished quilt.
Every time I look at it I feel really proud of myself. It is not perfect, but I did it all. I would rather think of it as naive. I started it to learn new techniques and that as I went on with it I would hopefully improve. I meant to do it all by hand. That went out the window for the last 4 blocks where I went to the sewing machine. This is based on an antique quilt with the designs, so I figure that the sewing machines arrived in the mid 1800’s so I could say it was progression in technology.
Thanks for visiting.
