My Home Sweet Home mini quilt is finished. Originally this mini was meant for someone else. But then I made something better suited for her, and fell in love with this myself - so I am keeping it. I have just made the last stitch on the back to secure the binding down and what began as an experiment has resulted in something that is quirky, fun and mine. (Did I mention I am keeping it?)
I bound it in a bright blue with small yellow flowers. I contemplated a navy text print for quite a while but decided to stick with the light and fun theme right to the end. I even, in a rare moment of forward planning, remembered to sew in the corner pockets so I am one step closer to being able to hang it on my wall.
I am happy with the little details I managed to include in this mini. Some of the fussy cuts are the only bit of fabric I had in that particular print so I am pleased with how they all fit in to their particular locations so well. Making this mini was a learning process for me and I had no concrete plan, just added in different things as I sewed and the mini grew.
And I am so very pleased that the British bulldog is in there due to all the advice and encouragement I received from you guys when I mucked up my first attempt to put him in the picture. Thank you to all who helped.
So that is another finish. I wonder what I will start next? Do you ever worry about running out of ideas, or are you like me - lying awake at 5am this morning thinking of a layout for epp that I would like to try out, and mentally auditioning different fabrics and layouts in my mind rather than doing something sensible like sleep? Will we ever have enough time, and fabric?
