Finish it Up! check in.

I’m ashamed to admit that I forgot to put Meg’s blog in my reader after I joined this “challenge” so I didn’t even think of having a check in until now! That has been remedied and here we are, three weeks in and I have made some progress.

I finished the Tetris mini quilt and I’m pretty in love with it.

I found a perfect black fabric with tiny hearts on it at JoAnn’s that I used for the binding.
I wish I’d found it earlier and I probably would have used it for the back but instead it’s kind of a starry space looking print.
I embroidered a small label and it’s ready to be hung! (Or given away?)

I finished the tops and backs to the large hexagonsbacking

and the lap sized Single Girl. this picture is only a part of the backing, don’t mind the creases.

I think I will be learning how to use my friend Lindsay’s long arm quilting machine in a couple weeks and I’m saving up a few quilts to bust out over a weekend. I can’t wait! I’ve been looking at thread and pantographs and figuring out the perfect combinations.
I decided, a bit reluctantly, that I’m going to take out all the quilting done thus far on the black, red, and white monster so that it can be redone.The thread I used was giving me big tension problems and breakage and my stitches just weren’t very good. So I’ve begun removing the quilting and keep telling myself it will be totally worth it. I haven’t decided if this quilt will be mine or someone else’s once it’s finished…
