You guys. Last night, I got to eat dinner with Michelle of Factotum of Arts. She and her mother are in NYC having fun, and they came into Newark last night to meet me after work. It.was.awesome. Bless her sweet mother, too, for listening to our quilt lingo for hours. Last night was the best moment – it was such an window into why I’ve loved blogging and what the best part of this journey has been. Now, I just need her to live closer all the time!
The husband’s quilt is almost finished. Almost finished. Woohoo! A while back, my girl Sarah posted a comma plus quilt, and I was smitten. Now, my husband has his own. I’m so glad that I shared Sarah’s quilt with him, because he LOVES it.
He loves it so much that he hasn’t complained once that my sewing table has taken over the living room for days. This.will.never.happen.again. Unless I make him another quilt. Which will never happen again.
I absolutely adore the square quilting, and I’m so proud of myself for just going after another FMQ design. I’ve made 7 quilts so far this year, and I’ve FMQed 5 of them with unique designs each time. This year I really wanted to get better at FMQing and I’ve loved trying out new designs. Squares were extremely liberating and fun, plus they went super quickly. BONUS.
It’s hard to photograph the detail on this quilt because of the low-volume fabrics, but the texture is on point. I’m so glad that this quilt will be staying in our house and that I’ll get to see it everyday!
Oh, and you know how were disagreed over the quilting? How I wanted to quilt words…
Yep, got some in there.
Now onto the binding!
