Working in a Donut Shop
I forgot to charge my camera battery so I used my iPhone. I finished my BOM quilt. Got the binding all sewn on the back by hand this morning after starting it yesterday afternoon. I can't quite pul;l the trigger on sewing it down by machine which seems to be the fad recently. I love the texture that developed when I quilted the lilac negative space.
I machine quilted it with lines half an inch apart after I had quilted them an inch apart. When I went back to fill in I skipped three inches and then would do more fill in. I'm hoping the weather is more cooperative tomorrow for pictures. It was so cold and dreary gray outside today I thought we might get snow! And windy too.
A better pic of the lilac and more accurate in color. If you're wondering about the title post it's because I imagine working in a donut shop must be similar to working on a quilt, at least for me. I get so sick of making that quilt from start to finish, I cannot wait to either mail it to the recipient or put it away in the closet. After a month I'm ok with seeing it! Weird me, I know.
Here's the backing, I love the fabric it's so quirky and silly. I even got it labeled today.
Stay warm, see you tomorrow!
