I FINALLY finished my Penny Patch quilt. Rachel at Stitched in Color started a quilt-along about a year ago and I cut fabric and stitched a quilt top and even machine quilted the whole thing and then… well, then I got hung up on binding it.
But I finished it last Sunday, and I love it. Here it is on my kitchen table:
I grid-quilted it, free-handing it with a walking foot on my Brother P1500Q straight-stitch machine:
And I used a blue and orange backing, stretching the blue gingham I had by adding a center orange panel:
I’ve also been cleaning out my closets, and discovered that I have a lot of quilts that I’ve finished that I just have no use for — they don’t match my personal aesthetic, I made them just to make them, or they’re for babies, and I don’t have a baby. So I’ve put them on Etsy.
