I showed my husband the quilt when it was done and his comment was that I should hang it backwards. Too funny! He actually prefers the back of the quilt to the front. I suppose if I hadn't put a label on it, I could have put it up either way.
This was a fun quilt to make. It didn't take very long to put the top together and I spent a lot more time quilting it than I did piecing it, but I enjoyed it all. The practice is also helping me with my stitch regulation and free motion quilting skills. These quilts are just the right size to try out various quilting designs and techniques without getting overwhelmed or taking forever!
So, to sum up this quilt:
- Size: 36" x 36"
- Fabric: 2 Charm Packs of Meadow by Blackbird Designs, backing is French General Favorites
- Batting: 2 layers of Warm & Natural
- Thread: Aurifil for the piecing and quilting
- Pattern: Jersey Girl by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co
I'm already busy piecing the next one and planning out the quilting for it. We'll see how far I can get before I need to set it aside and finish a couple other things. We're expecting some more snow and ice tomorrow, so perhaps I'll be able to spend the next few days in my sewing room. (I'm really hoping that turns out to be the case.)
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
