I knit a cowl. Twice. Still not right. Long painful story. It'll be done but not for this post, as planned.
Still, I persisted with another project. I'm counting this as part of my #18in2018 because the 50s replica fabrics were purchased in the 90s. I loved them at the time, but had no plan for how they'd be used. When I was looking through my stash for projects suitable for #18in2018, I recognized that these fabrics really needed to be used up and a nice summer quilt would be the perfect plan for them.
So I found a pattern online that I could use as inspiration, and that would be flexible with the many fat quarters I had. I pressed, and I cut. Then I figured out how I could use those fat quarters in some semblance of order.
I think I started in January or February. Not bad for a quilt turnaround. Not bad for me, that is.
You may have seen some of these in progress shots.
Quilting finished today, and photographed on the deck. This quilt will be a snuggly addition to the cottage for cool summer nights.
By no means is it perfect, there are a lot of mistakes. I'm okay at piecing, but really sub-par at quilting on my machine. But I'm a lover of "done". That's what this is.... done!
