I have a habit of starting things, getting side tracked and stuffing them away, often for years. These two items are an example of that.This wall hanging/table topper actually was partially quilting. I was able to locate the thread I started with and have determined to work on it a little each day until it is done.
This winter wall hanging is my second must finish. Yes, the center is off, missing the diagonal row of red squares to make it symmetrical. The piece is square though. Somewhere along the line I lost the additional fabric and I sort of like it this way. It think it makes it interesting! Plus missing the fabric to finish it off makes it necessary. It came to either finish or toss it. I like it too much to toss.
I am quilting it in my own crazy way. I do not do free motion quilting. I took a class for an entire week and still no go. This is the best I can do. I know I should practice, and it is on my to do list eventually now that I have retired. However the piece is completely quilted, the binding is sewn on and half way hand stitched down. It will hang in my entry when winter returns and it is DONE.
I seem to have that same habit of starting a quilt and then jumping on to another. I have way too many UFOs. I love both of the quilts you are sharing here. The first is so modern. And I love asymmetrical quilts, so the second one I think is eye-catching with the placement of the red diagonal piecing. And, BTW, your free motion meandering looks great!ReplyDelete
Oh don't we all do that--getting de-railed by a wonderful new idea...I like both of your quilts--very good work on these hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
It seems that Blogger still is not allowing comments to come to my e-mails so I can individually answer them and thank you for you comments and encouragement. It was supposed to be cleared up last week, but that has not happened.ReplyDelete
looking forward to seeing these done!ReplyDelete

Beautiful nearly finishes! Love the winter quilt!ReplyDelete
I really like that winter wall hanging with the center off to the side. The asymmetry really adds interest - thank you for sharing today!ReplyDelete
Hi DonnaLee, those are two great quilts. I think that your winter quilt looks much more interesting this way!ReplyDelete
I had an error when submitting my comment, so I apologize if this ends up being a duplicate. I absolutely love the last quilt being offset like that. It looks amazing! And the quilting is fantastic!ReplyDelete
