Group Quilt is Finished
I have been working on a group baby quilt this week. Each person in the group was requested to add one or two kites to the quilt. It's a challenge working on a group quilt. Everyone contributes in whatever way they can and you have to give up all your perfectionistic tendencies to accommodate a wide range of sewing abilities.
The goal is to have everyone participate, not to get a beautifully made quilt.
I appliqued two kites to the quilt - a sock monkey kite and a striped kite.
The striped kite got a ricrac tail, and the sock monkey has a couched yarn tail which were both fastened down by machine.
I also finished the edge of the quilt with a striped binding.
Here it is hanging on the clothesline. Now I am passing the quilt onto another friend who will hopefully add a kite or two.
And then it will be gifted to our friend who is a first time grandma. So happy to be done with this "must do" project so I can get back to some fun projects of my own!
