I am in the process of trying to finish my Scrappy Hearts quilt. It's been 2 years in the making.
Oops! It looks like I forgot to take the Christmas quilt off my bed.
This is how much I had done when I put it away 2 years ago. I look at it and think, "Wow! I made that?" With so many quick and fast quilts that I made for the kids and grand kids sometimes I wonder if I still know how to make a half square triangle!
I loved the idea of knowing that all of us were sewing together, but I sort of got lonely. I messaged my quilting buddy Mary Ann on Facebook to see what she was doing, and she was sewing at the Friday Night Sew In. We chatted while we sewed, and it made for a fun night. Neither one of us could stay up all night, but sewing for a little while is better than not sewing at all.
The quilt is a queen size quilt. I didn't get it finished last night during the sew in, but I did finish making all of the hearts, after I ripped out a couple that I had sewn together the wrong way.
I know that it's fun to get things finished really fast, but for me, I need to slow down and enjoy the process of quilting. I really had fun matching seams, squaring up blocks, and admiring my beautiful half square triangles.
Thank you Heidi for hosting the Friday Night Sew In.
