Well here we are bottom of the 9th of 2019 and I am just now posting my first finish of the four quilts I had planned to finish this year.
Now too be perfectly fair, I finished all four quilt tops and its technically just the quilting portion left, but I’ve discovered that part is not my particular favorite part in all of this quilting business. I love the designing and assembling the tops and backs and even greatly enjoy the hand stitching down my binding… but most of the quilting is a bit of a snooze. Though to be perfectly fair, I don’t have a long arm so its quite a bit of quilt wrangling yet. And this particular quilt called for simple lines which I had just (or at least it felt that way) did on my last quilt. But at least this time I had a variegated thread for my quilting!
This is an Echoes Quilt kit that I bought to learn how to piece curves.
I didn’t trim down my curved blocks quite like they did so its more chunky… and I’m not super great at piecing curves I’ve discovered.
For the back I found a wonderfully greens and blues ombre fabric on sale (lucky me).
This was also my first use of a black batting, which was suggested by my auntie. I didn’t even know there was such a thing!
So quick 2019 quilt status update: One done, two ready for quilting, and one top completed need to buy and piece the backing.
