Remember that time I joined a quilt along in 2013 with the intention of finishing the quilt before that Christmas? Well a year and month later I can finally say: She done!
I gotta say Lil Miss Penny (as I call her) is an absolute disaster. I know I’m my own toughest critic but between sloppy 1/4″ seams, not squaring up blocks and an ill attempt at a new quilt as you go technique (there’s some kinks to work out there) it’s literally full of mistakes! You know what all those mistakes add up to though? A warm cozy quilt. Do the mistakes even matter? I thought so when I looked at the quilt myself but when I looked at the photos I realized they’re barely visible.
I had my friend Katie hold Penny up for us, Brooke was trying to be helpful. Emphasis on trying.
I usually hand stitch my quilt labels on but this time I machine sewed it on and it looks great from both the front and the back that way so I this will be how I do them from now on.
I’m still really pleased with how the Farmer’s wife blocks look in the quilt. It adds just a little pizzaz. I really need to get started on my FWQ at some point. Can you keep a secret? There may be a quilt along to do some farmer’s wife in future, hopefully with giveaways! ;)
It felt really good to finally finish this quilt. Now to just figure out where it’s will call home.
