Finally I Finished — Monday, October 28, 2019

Setting myself to learning a new skill of hand-quilting a quilt

I finally finished.

I’m sure my project would jangle some peoples nerves, but for me

This wee little coverlet spelled lots of delight; echoed with frustration and angst.

Still, it finished and I must say I like it; flaws and all.

I think I want to try another one soon.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. congratulations – that’ll be a family treasure. and those wild violets and versions of those colors are most of my favorites – in fabric, china, housewares, even clothing. –suz in ohio

  2. That is a masterpiece. And, ‘flaws’ is totally subjective. You sound like me when I painted. I was always exhausted after I painted something. I was so emotionally involved in it being ‘perfect’, any perceived mistake was devastating. I look at my paintings, now and I am amazed I did them. Whatever ‘flaws’ I thought happened are lost to time.

  3. It is so lovely, and with one of my favorite flowers. Remember, only God is perfect. It will forever be cherished because of a small flaw…shows it is not machine made, but with loving hands.

  4. Oh, that is soooo beautiful, and you did a great job–an heirloom for the generations. You should be so proud. Very few of us do hand quilting anymore so it’s important to keep up the skill. I don’t like the machine quilts as they are too stiff–too much quilting. I quilt mine on a regular sewing machine a follow what the pattern suggests. I also use fluffy polyester batting which is much lighter and fluffier.

    Congratulations on a job well done. What’s next?

    PS The Amish supposedly quilt a small error in their quilts because only God is perfect.
