Finally, Some Quilting!


Summer time is not the traditional time for quilting and the summer of 2011 at my house has certainly been a season of not doing much sewing or quilting. My grandmother quilted in the winter and stayed busy doing all kinds of other things in the spring and summer. Now I know why!

Things have slowed down some here and I can see that summer is slowly coming to an end. The due date for Baby Aven is approaching rapidly, so I had to get going with the completion of the Kaleidoscope Quilt top I made earlier in the summer.

Saturday I pin basted it and have machine quilted about 1/4 of it. I plan to do some quilting on it every day after work and have it ready to bind by the weekend.

Like you, with the heat we've had this summer I understand quilting in the winter. The quilt is going to be beautiful. I love the colors you chose for it.

The machine quilting is so pretty. I hope 'when" I try it on my new machine that it will be much easier than the old Singer. Yours looks so evenly spaced... very pretty!

You know what they say, slow and steady wins the race.

You're making great progress on the quilt... esp when you consider ALL the other stuff you've been doing. I can sew/piece any time of the year but fall and winter are the best times to work on bindings when the warmth of the quilt in your lap is welcome!

The quilt top is so beautiful, a lovely quilt to welcome baby Aven.

It's strange that in summer when the weather is hot I always have the urge to knit some winter woollies, I'm wondering if it's the same for you and quilt making.
