|Ombre Tulips - 23" x 29"|
You may recall that I wasn't very happy with the quilting on this little quilt when I finished it. Several things persuaded me to go ahead and bind it and hang it up in my house.
1) I wanted to do a hanging sleeve tutorial and this was the perfect sized quilt on which to do that;
2) I have a blank bathroom wall that desperately needs a bit of spring;
3) I did not want to have an almost finished quilt hanging around my sewing room taking up space and;
4) The longer I'm a quilter and the more quilts I make, the more I realize that this is a process, not a destination.
To expand on this last point - I'm trying to improve my free motion quilting skills and just because they aren't where I'd like them to be, I have decided not to be ashamed of that. Would I enter this quilt in a show? Definitely not! However, it is worthy of hanging in my house and bringing a bit of Spring to an otherwise blank wall.
I'm linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday - go check out all the other great finishes!
Hope to see you back here on Sunday for another Sew Solid Sunday!
