I am linking up with Amanda for Finish it Friday. I sometimes feel that my finishes don’t really count. They are finishes for me, but not very often are they full quilts finished. I am so very slow. Maybe it is because I have so many projects that I like to work on.
I love the piecing. There are two different quilts that I am working on right now. The Farmers Wife 1930 blocks and Friendship Blocks using Liberty fabrics from a club I joined. I get about one or two blocks a week finished. Some of the Farmers wife blocks are very challenging. I really only get to quilt at night after the kids go to bed.
Here is my latest Farmers Wife 1930’s finish. It is called Hope. It was a little hard because it had a partial seam which I had never experienced. I did it, but it did come out a bit crooked. I am hoping trimming will fix it. Otherwise I will have to take it out and redo it.
Part of the reason I am so slow is that I mark all my seams and pin a lot.
Here is my latest Liberty friendship star block finish. These are pretty quick to sew up. The slow part of this block for me is picking out the fabrics. I obsess about it!
Part of the problem in getting whole quilts finished is that I just have too many hobbies! I just started this embroidery project recently and I am loving it. I also knit, (did just finish a sweater, but that is another post!) and I love to cook! I have two little girls that I love spending time with and that is where most of my time goes. In the last couple of weeks there have been music recitals and dance shows to attend.
So I hope my little finishes are fine to post on Finish it Friday. I love seeing all of your finishes. It gives me inspiration!
Happy stitching everyone!
