"The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul..." ~ Proverbs 13:19
Hannah and I started our online quilt class back in January, and here it is May already! And I'm just finishing! But finish I did! I'm excited about my new wall hanging for our guest room. Now I need to decide whether to display it over the bottom of the black iron bed or put it up on the wall. Either way, I love the pinwheels twirling in all directions!
I machine quilted rather than hand quilting this time, although I would love to learn to do hand quilting the old-fashioned way on a future quilt I might tackle. The back of my wall hanging isn't perfect; I was trying to get the hang of our new walking foot, and it crookedly walked to places it shouldn't have and walked in place a lot creating a jumble of stitches! But it was a good experience, and I enjoyed it!
Randi, our talented, crafty online instructor, was a real inspiration and posted detailed pictures with all the steps. She has the quilt instructions linked in her sidebar if you're interested in doing a pinwheel quilt yourself. Many thanks to Randi for the idea to share her talents with folks across the country.
Thanks to Hannah for arranging my quilt and taking the picture. Aren't I glad that bird conducted his business on the birdhouse instead of landing on my newly completed quilt?! Whew!
