I just wrote a blog comment (don't you love visiting quilting blogs?!?) saying quilting is such a great hobby because there are so many different activities to suit any mood you might be in. Since the weather has turned cooler here, I'm really into machine quilting. I decided to finish up this quilt...I received the blocks and fabric for this quilt back in February. It was a UFO belonging to a quilting friend which was about 10 years old...the quilt was 10, not the friend! To see how I quilted the blocks - click here.
I finally decided to quilt a loopy design on the borders of this quilt. I wasn't happy with how this corner turn looked, so I took those stitches out and redid the quilting.
I am now happier with the quilting on the corners, even though some of the loops are a little wobbly. It was a fun and quick way to quilt the border.
When I needed a break from machine quilting (you know how your shoulders and arms get tired and you need a stretch?) I sorted and cut dotty scraps for this quilt and then pin basted a little on this quilt....making slow progress on each of these projects.
Then I'd go back to quilting the black and yellow quilt. I had enough fabric with the project to make the binding from the rest of the black fabric with a little of the yellow. And here is the finished quilt! The size is 58" x 77". It will be donated to the community outreach project of my guild which collects quilts for the Pediatric Sexual Assault unit at hospital.
