Recently I have felt the need to finish a few of the many things I have in progress. It's funny how some items are left for a long time, and they really don't need much work to finish. So my focus has been on finishing, and I am resisting the impulse to start anything new.
First up, the modern quilt I made for my daughter's college graduation:
Then I challenged myself to piece Temecula's little Christmas quilt from 2015, for which I had the kit. When I looked at it last year, I thought I cannot do that - the blocks finish at 2 1/4". Now I have a different job, which has changed my outlook and helped me feel more like myself ! So now it was no problem to piece this one:
And lastly, a peek at two small boutis (petassons) which came to me a couple of months back, but which I have not shown yet. Both the usual size, one better quality than the other in terms of design and work, but I always do love the simple ones as well. Humble they may be, but at a great deal of thought and work went into each one of them.
Both could do with a soak in water, they are clean and perfect but I like to get rid of the storage marks.
My large boutis has been neglected, with the cooler weather I am more willing to work on the stuffing. it's hard to hold a big piece to stuff the center, and the linen on the back is not helping me. I love the fabric, but I will not do this again. I feel I have less definition of design on the back because of it. We never stop learning !
Hope everyone gets some stitching time today.
