Gillian and I successfully defended our dissertations last week, which means that we’ve been sewing! It’s felt SO good to be back at the sewing machine!
And even better, I was finally able to finish my HST quilt top! I finished the last seam, ironed it open, and ran outside to take pictures just moments after the sun set. Phew!
Of course, now I need to figure out a back and how to quilt it! Those are always the hardest parts for me. At this point I always wonder, “but wait, what do you mean it isn’t done?!” And then I get to the binding and for some reason I enjoy that part again.
This quilt went through about 4 layouts, and the final layout was mostly accidental, after all that! When this is finished, I’ll post the progression shots.
