Friday Finish


This was not pieced by me. I spent 7 hours at a sew in for my quilt guild. We were quilting charity quilts that had previously been pieced.


I chose a loopy meander for the squares and did a continuous figure 8 in the borders. i am happy with how it turned out and i am definitely getting more confident.

The binding gave me fits however. I dont know if it is the machine i was using or what but i could not get away from the birdsnests! I worked on it for hours with help from many other people. In the end, a friend finished the binding and I went to help clean the kitchen after dinner. So i still got to serve and i was able to avoid throwing the machine out the window. Win win.

About anestinthemaking

Hi! I'm Kristi! I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a friend. I'm a newbie to sewing and blogging, but I'm excited to get started! Sewing is the first hobby I've really had in a long time. In high school, I sang, I played the piano, I played in the band, I wrote in journals. I went off to college, got married, started a family, and lived a life without hobbies. How boring?! Then I started reading blogs. One thing led to another and soon I was at my co-worker's house borrowing her sewing machine! I haven't looked back since! Sewing is a release for me. It's so much fun to create beautiful and useful things. It's fun to be learning something new, and it's fun to share it with you! So welcome! Take a look around, and let me know you're here! I love to meet people and respond to every message I get! And I can't wait to meet you!
