I have been seriously dilatory with blog posting lately. In my defense, however, I had the heaviest teaching load ever this past term, and this left little time for meaningful sewing. I have managed to get a few things done, however.
This weekend, I finished up a simple little quilt top that is going to be finished up for my daughter's new BFF at university, Samantha.
Sam saw the quilt that I made for my daughter and flipped over it. Eve says Sam is always petting it when she comes into Eve's room. I had started this project when I wanted some quick, mindless chain piecing, and it seemed perfect for a young woman's residence room. So Sam will be getting this when it's finished up.
If I'm lucky, I can finish it over the holiday and Eve can take it back with her when she goes back to Montreal in January.
Being so busy at work, I was often pooped when I got home, and wanted nothing more than to watch some mindless television and do some hand work. As a result, I'm happy to report that I finished up the quilt top for this hand-piecing project.
It's made using the English paper-piecing approach (although I used the plastic Quilt Patis templates). I started it in August 2010.
I thought about putting a border on this, but I'm not sure about it. I'm thinking I should just stick a binding on it. What do you think?
I sure do love the photos of quilt tops taken from the "wrong" side. To borrow from popular song canon, how can it be wrong when it seems so right?
