WIP Wednesday is back!

Our Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway post can be found here!

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.

Thanks, as always, to Lee from Freshly Pieced for hosting WIP Wednesday! Definitely check out what others are working on.
