Full blown, actual quilting – real live quilting – really!

Well, it’s taken me lots and lots and lots of time to get up the never to use my big HQSS, but I can now say I have completed 2 small quilts. Well, to the point that I have to but the binding on, but the actual quilting is done.

I have been doing the Row by Row shop hops the last couple of years, and I’ve been making the rows, just didn’t do anything with them after that. So I’ve had this collection of rows, just sitting around. Last fall, I decided that my winter project was going to be actually “quilting” them with my HQSS. So I took a bunch of them, grouped them by season (sort of) and made the sandwiches.  They have been sitting in the corner of my sewing room, just waiting.

I joined a couple of groups on FB for FMQ and HQSS and they really, really energized me. Well, some would call it “peer pressure”. 😆  Well, 4 bobbins later – this is ready for binding and finishing!
