Fresh Quilt

This is my old fresh quilt I finished a couple of weeks ago. I worked on this quilt over than a year and it was supposed to be a gift for a two years old girl. Well, she literally got her gift on her third birthday. I'd be more ashamed if this quilt was still in my sewing room though.

Quilting it was a pain. I regretted not had sent this quilt to be quilted professionally. I chose a small stipple pattern plus the sashing fabric is quite a heavy cotton and the top also turned out to be heavy. It was very, very difficult moving this quilt on my sewing machine. The finished size is 54"x54" not that big, but really, I just let the borders be what they are with no quilting! Sometimes we just need to move on instead of trying to fix or do something we will never do. Let it go!

This quilt was part of the Quilt Along I hosted almost two years ago. The pattern is from the book Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley. I've a couple of posts where I share about the fabrics choice and other details if you wanna read it, here and here.

And about blogging lately, it has been a quiet month. Every time that happen, my head is just full of ideas and so many decisions to make. I'd love to blog about more than quilting, although I LOVE quilting. But, do I have time for more? It all depends on how this is important to me. Is it only a hobby? So, I'll be thinking a bit more and I'm gonna share if I have more news. Is a fresh start coming? If not, I'll just keep doing what I'm doing, with no obligations for sure. Borders with no quilting, remember? hahaha

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a lovely weekend!

Congrats on the beautiful finish. I think the longer something takes, the more we appreciate the finish.
