First of all, I loved making each of the blocks in this quilt. I really enjoyed my first BOM experience and hope to do this again.
Last year, Anne Marie at Gen X Quilters announced the Vice Versa BOM. It looked intriguing and fun so I decided I would jumped in! I could handle two blocks a month.
The hardest part for me was deciding my colors. In the end I went with some special hand dyed fabrics that my daughter dyed for me. They had been sitting in my stash for far too long and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to use them.
I wasn't going to let that stop me from trying it again! Come hell or high water...I was going to FMQ and finish this quilt!
The second try was so much better. I felt good about this go around. Checked, checked, and double checked the stitching. To be honest, the stippling isn't perfect. I crossed over a couple times, the stitches are certainly not perfect to say the least!
Last night I finished sewing the binding and threw it in the wash. After pulling it out of the drier...I was giddy with joy at the results! It's amazing how a good crinkle can hide the inconsistency of my stitches!
Not bad! I love the colors, love the blocks and love the quilting!
I did a little stippling, a little straight line and a little finger (?) quilting.
Thank you Anne Marie! I loved this BOM and you were the perfect hostess!
