I started a replacement quilt for my mom after I abandoned the last one. The piecing on this one went really quickly as well, but this time I’m happy with the results. The pattern is called Big City Quilt. The pattern says its great when you want a large quilt with little fuss. That’s a pretty accurate description. I did the king/queen size and I did not feel overwhelmed by the process. Check back with me after i start quilting it. I’m sure I will feel overwhelmed then. The pattern is great. Its a small tiny little booklet, but it gives you all the information you need to make the process fun and simple. I would make this again in a second.
The size makes it hard to photograph. Not enough space on the ground. (I wonder if I will ever miss the days of toys being in the background of my pictures.) I bought some quilting stencils to see if that will help with my free motion quilting. With the stencils and the bernina bsr unit I’m excited to get started.
I’ve been eyeing dress forms and mannequins for about a year now. Rather than paying the high price tag for one I would rather put that money into fabric or yarn, therefore I’ve held off on buying one. I found one on amazon that was on sale. It was normally 85 and I got it for 65. I also had 27 dollars in citi card points so I had to buy it.
On to the very little knitting news I have….
I finally have all the stitches picked up for the neckband of my Blue Sand Cardigan. Next is tons of stitches in ribbing, and more short row shaping *sigh*.
