My January UFO called "Chocolate Dance" has been machine quilted.
Because I am teaching a class on friday about how to quilt swirls and ribbon candy designs, I decided to practice them on this quilt. Swirls are in the centre and the fun ribbon candy design is in the border. I wrote about the minke frustrations in a previous blog post, so I won't go on and on about it again today, but it turned my usually enjoyable quilting experience, into a very challenging process.
And... can you even believe this?!?!
I measured how much binding I needed, and ta da... I'm about 1" too short!
Are you kidding me?!?! This quilt experience was just one frustration after another!
I attached the binding on the minke side and folded it over to the quilt top side to hand stitch it down ... that turned out to be a good idea!
I'm so relieved that the quilting is done and the binding is on, so in spite of all the challenges, it looks like I'm on track to achieve my January goal!
