Challenge Day 4
It's day 4 of my 31 Day Challenge. I didn't start quilting till this afternoon, but once I started I dove right in! I really wanted to finish Betty's quilt today!
I really didn't know how I was going to quilt this up. The border was the first thing I started with. I did a grid and used Betty's piecing for a reference as to where the grid would be...so if you follow the blocks on the border over to the quilt, you can see that it matches the piecing. This was a good start.
Then I turned the yellow churn dash to a feather ring....very easy....and the feather on the 2nd and 3rd borders was fun too, I used the inner seam as a vine and that was my guide for my feather.
This little quilt did take many hours and I couldn't have finished it today, if it weren't for my husband making dinner tonight. I love him!
Betty is a phenomenal piecer and this quilt was a perfect square!
....and on to the machine is the next quilt in line!
I will say this, I'm exhausted tonight! My feet and hips hurt and I'm so ready to call it a night! It does feel so good though, to finally get these quilts done and I'll live with hurt feet and hips this month, so I can complete my challenge!
I also wanted to say thanks to all your comments on Annette's quilts. It was such a privilege quilting for her and she is such a remarkable woman with amazing talent!
