It's true. I have been quilting. My work year got a bit involved, but I'm still doing a few projects. This was meant to be up six weeks ago, I just never had the time to finish it.
The block is Annie's Choice from the Fat Quarter Shop's Wishes Quilt Along.
Five Things you should know about this door hanging:
1. It's a scrappy project, meaning I used fabric from my stash. That is a very good thing. My fabric stash is important. Each piece of fabric has been hand selected by me. I love them all and don't use them lightly. I really loved that blue patterned fabric. I've been waiting to use it for at least two years.
2. I used a pattern for the block. But I mentioned that already. Also, I finished. This is another good thing.
3. I did the Square in a square all. by. myself. I looked up online how to measure for this finishing feature, and I'm rather proud of myself.
4. I quilted it myself. Both in the ditch quilting as well as free motion. I've never free motioned quilted before, for real. Scary. It isn't pretty. But you have to start somewhere, right? And I finished it. Bam. I should have used thread that is the same color of the fabric...but I didn't.
5. From the street, you can't see the hideousness that is my free motion quilting. You just see a nice looking door hanging.
