WIP Wednesday

Freshly Pieced is taking a WIP Wednesday hiatus, but I thought I’d share my progress quilting. I am – drum roll – about 75% done quilting my king size quilt! (And the crowd goes mild.)

My shelf is a mess… Let’s be real, my whole house is a mess.

I have been wrenching my shoulder out of place doing this on my domestic machine. I’ve been doing large circles starting at either corner of the quilt and rippling outwards. Like this:

And again on the opposite corner and they meet in the middle. You get it. 

My rings are a lot more random, though. Ranging from 1/4 inch to about 3 inches apart. I thought I’d keep it pretty simple because I didn’t want to spend the next 9 years of my life quilting it.

As I was quilting, however, I made a horrific discovery. I used approximately 14 billion 3 or 4 shades of dark blue and without natural light in my sewing room I mismatched some of the blues.


That dark blue curve there. It haunts me in my sleep. I’ve contemplated ripping it out, but the amount of work to do that would be incredible, so I guess it stays. Truth be told, it’s not that noticeable, and it’s all part of the process right? Damn curve.
