new year, new quilt

Allison's Quilt

It feels really good to finish a quilt! Despite sewing my fingers sore over the past year, it had been since last March since I worked on a quilt. That was too long.

I spent a week after Christmas hanging out in my sewing room, going through my fabrics, and knowing that I wanted to start a quilt, but I just couldn't put together in my mind what I wanted to make. I think I was overwhelmed.

Then, after one day back at work (and feeling so frustrated that I hadn't really done any sewing over my vacation) I knew what I wanted to make. The colors, the fabrics, the backing...I was so excited to get home and start.

It took me five days to make this quilt from start to finish. I've never finished a quilt so quickly before! And it turned out to be a perfect gift for my friend Allison. I'm ready to get started on another!


good for you! i love your creations. this quilt is no exception!

This looks great! I love the green binding on it too. It does feel good to get a project made in a timely manner doesn't it? I'm trying to work more that way rather than adding to the UFO pile.
