I tried hand-quilting - I just don't like it. So, I took a machine quilting class. I really enjoyed the class and despite having just a simple sewing machine, I feel like I could get the hang of it. Unfortunately, it comes down to practicing more than just knowing how to do it. Now I need to practice. The pieces I have ready to quilt have seen many hours of meticulous piecing and I'm not willing to quilt on them until I practice. But practicing is not the fun part of making and I haven't done it yet.
In the meantime, I got out a piecing project that had no reason to be stalled and Mom and I worked on it for a while during her visit. It's one of these strange projects that doesn't have much of a purpose - I found a bunch of leftover block-of-the-month club kits at a fabric store for ridiculously cheap. There were only five designs left, but lots of those. So, I got multiples of each with the idea of either inventing alternate blocks or just making multiples of the ones I had. I liked the colors, but other than that I didn't have much of a plan. I still don't, but I decided that's ok.
I've done quite a bit more since she left, and am making good progress. I guess I'll get it to the point of being stalled and decide then what to do next.
