Big Finish - Happy Birds.
I am just squeaking in at the end of the month for One Monthly Goal
and Ufo 2017. Of course, it is raining outside, so this is my best picture opportunity. I am well pleased with this finish. Effort versus results is a good ratio. I learned a lot from making this. I am a finisher, even if it takes putting it aside to warm back up to it. I don't like making mistakes at first, but I can warm up to that as well. As I keep going, the first mistakes really don't seem as sad. So I guess, we need to practice at everything including making mistakes to get any better.
This is a Jen Kingwell design.
I also finished the pink sampler as part of my one monthly goal.
So far, One monthly goal
has really kept me on task to complete 5 projects that I would have just set aside if left to my own devices. I need the extra accountability. Thank you Patty.
I declared last Saturday to be string Saturday. Any chance I had to sew, I worked on string/crumb piecing. I made 12 sashings for wonky wishes
. I need 71. So I am making progress. I am using an old children's drawing pad. The paper is 9 x12 so I just need to remember to leave at least 1/2 inch at the end since I need 3 1/2 x 12 1/2. It tears easily and is recycling.

Beautiful finish and good progress on your sashing strips!!ReplyDelete
I love your Happy Birds quilt! It's good to learn as you make a quilt, which I think we all do. The other good thing is that the rest of us will never see your mistakes - we just see a beautiful quilt!ReplyDelete
very pretty and I agree with the accountability thing, I have to have itReplyDelete
I too have learned the efforts vs. results ratio. The more of a pain it is to work on the quilt the more beautiful it is. But then we end up loving the process and it's not a pain anymore, but a job. Your wonky wishes strings are perfect. Gorgeous finish!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on such a beautiful finish. It is certainly worth the effort it took.ReplyDelete
