This is a rarity, I'll have you know.
It's a rare day when I finish all the way to the quilted-and-bound stage of a project - in the same month that it was started!
With that statement made, I will introduce my totally finished Faithful, the sweet block that Lori at Humble Quilts has been doing as a quilt-along.
The scrappiness of it is what appealed to me from the start. I am also rather enamored with triangles. What a perfect pairing, right?
I can directly attribute the decision to machine quilt this block to the new Bernina that you met here. Lori's instructions were "quilt as desired," and since I need practice, I decided to just stitch in the ditch of each ring around the center. In addition, I did a little extra stitching-still in the ditch-in that center block. I'm getting better at it, and feel pretty confident that I could handle straight-line quilting on any smallish quilt. I'm not ready for anything full-size, and may never be, actually.
But I digress. The scraps used are mostly from recent projects, and are 100% stash fabric. Even the batting was a scrap that I pieced to make fit. To read the bits and pieces of my construction process you can click here, here and here.
Lori is hosting a Linky Party today on her blog. This permits us to see the finishes of others who participated in the quilt-along. I think you will enjoy seeing the variety. Click on the link to view them.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
