It is the middle of June already, I’m not quite sure how we got here and I am actually beginning to think that this project might be making time move even faster – funny how deadlines can do that! So I am halfway finished with my goal for the month. I wanted to have my quilt finished and my pattern written. Well, the quilt is done, I will give you a couple sneaky peeks here but the pattern…let’s just say I am having trouble sitting at the computer.
I did a machine binding, for no other reason that hand bindings hurt my hands, but I decided to jazz it up with a fun wavy stitch on my machine. I love the added pop of color and fun it adds.
I did almost entirely swirls for the quilting, in the actual “pictures” I did some free motion quilting around the birds and the butterflies in the prints, but I will show those when I reveal the whole quilt at the end of the month. Here are some of my swirls.
