sew along

It’s finally done!

I had big “finish my UFOs” goals this year. In January, I posted the list of all the UFO projects I wanted to do in 2020. I’ll share more about that another day, but – spoiler alert- I did NOT complete my list!

That being said, there is one project from that list I am so proud to have finished! This was my number 8 (August) project- the 2019 Quilter’s Planner BOM quilt. This pattern was designed by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs

At the beginning of the year, I wasn’t sure of the final home for this quilt. Then my husband and I got talking one day about how great it would be to have a quilt to go on our bed for each season. The snowflake layout and the fun colors of this quilt make it a perfect choice for our winter quilt. I added a wide border to get it to the right size. The design portion of the quilt is perfect to cover the top of our king-sized mattress, and the navy border creates the overhang.

I free-motion quilted this on my domestic machine. It was a bit of a job but I took plenty of time and enjoyed to process.

I must say, it is very difficult to photograph such a large quilt in December in Washington when the weather just doesn’t cooperate and the lighting is terrible. I am hoping to get better pictures in spring!

Happy Sewing! ~L
