I won a fabric giveaway a couple months back from Glam Fabrics. I chose some gray minky, some pink scallop print cotton, and a colorful zoo print cotton. I had some floral fabric that I won from Sewing Summit and some pink striped fabric in my stash. They all looked great together even though I had to do some interesting piecing to make it big enough.
This is the second pieced blanket I’ve made (the first one hasn’t been gifted yet, so I can’t show you) and kind of have a love/hate relationship with making quilts. I have fallen in love with coordinating colors and patterns, thinking up the overall pattern, making use of scraps, and satisfying straight lines. I don’t mind sewing the pieces together if there isn’t a lot of seams, but I don’t like binding, the actual quilting, or tying. It kind of leaves me in a rut if I only do half of a blanket process, right?
I’m glad I tried quilting to realize I don’t love it. Do you love quilting or piecing? Have you tried something that you really love and really hate?
