I've been really busy hand sewing lately - today or tomorrow I will be dropping off my two quilts for the Three Rivers Quilt show, so I had to get sleeves on them and get them all de-linted/-haired/-threaded. I made the mistake of making my first sleeve totally flat. Bad idea. It makes the top of my quilt look all bendy and funny. Luckily some friends gave me some advice and I ended up making the second one in the vein of this D-Sleeve Tutorial from Tallgrass Prairie Studio. My hands are cramping up after all that hand sewing!
My absolute favorite thing from this past week was finishing up the FMQ on my Groove quilt. I decided to go back to my original thought of doing "organic, wavy lines" and tried that out over the final section of the quilt. I loooooove it!
|Quilting finished! Finally!|
After finishing that up, I'm feeling pretty confident in my FMQ skills. I recently basted my Parking Lights quilt from last summer and will be quilting up that beast soon. That was going to be my entry for Quilt Con. Ooops. Maybe for 2015!
Linking up with FMQ Friday!
