Enjoy your stay under the variable skies of Eastern Washington and watch the seasons change, from planting to harvest here on the farm...be sure to wrap up in a quilt during the winter, it's cold!!

A Lovely Year of Finishes - November 2015
Yippee!! I got my granddaughter's quilt finished and met my goal with Sew BitterSweet Designs for November! It was fun to quilt using what I call "topography" quilting for the filler behind the fairies. A little different from McTavishing as that has fewer repeats before you change direction - great on an adult quilt, but this is for an 8 year old, so a little larger, more repeats "topography" for her!
Here are the individual blocks:
I finished Fairy Garden with a faux piping binding and sewed it down with my sewing machine. Here is a picture of the back
I love the colors in this fabric...even a bit of metallic for sparkle! I fuzzed out her last name, just cuz that's the way I roll!
On the top corners of the wall hanging, I put triangles of fabric so it will be easy for her mom to put a dowel and hang it up on a single nail.
I prefer these over sleeves for two reasons - one nail hole verses 2 (and trying to get them level!) and I don't have to do a bunch of hand sewing to keep that sleeve out of sight! Just sewing on the label makes my hands ache.
Did you make a goal for November? Did you reach that goal?? Celebrate!!!
