2013. The year of block of the months and quilts yet to see the light of day.
There is something satisfying when one completes a quilt. Even this quilt.
It's the 2nd quilt I attempted - over 15 years ago. Maybe even over 20 years ago. I was so pleased with putting it together and then something shifted, reality took over and it went from bag to bag - and then folded and put away in a cupboard.
Finally - it was removed...chuckled over....and I began the process of finding backing and experimenting with adhesive batting.
Discovered I am not a fan of adhesive batting. I tried just about everything to iron quilt to batting and yet, nary a "stick". Perhaps my technique - perhaps not. Also gummed up the needle a bit during the quilting process.
All in all, I am glad I completed it. It is now hanging on the dining room wall where I can see it daily. It serves as a constant reminder of how far I've come as a quilter....at least adhesive batting is off my list of must haves...and floral themed fabric is off my list forever.
In the meantime, I'm still quilting and loving it.
