My first one was to make something for ME each month. As much as I love my job and I do, I tend to get busy with deadlines and projects that my "me stack" has gotten out of control.
So my first step was to find some fabric and a pattern to work on. I had this stack of Michael Miller Fabric - Atelier by Sarah Campbell that I had been holding onto. It was perfect, bright cheerful modern looking prints. I then picked my pattern Home Again. I love this pattern just haven't had a chance to remake it again in awhile, didn't have the right fabric until now.
Quilt went to gather pretty quick. Next up the quilting. Typically more often than not when I make a quilt for myself I will do a quick all over design. I decided as part of my resolution I would do some custom quilting on this one. FYI who says your backgrounds have to be white??? I chose a Michael Miller wide backing for the back. It was perfect!
Quilting done.. on to binding. I love bright cheerful busy prints for bindings.
Quilt is done and ready for binding to be hand sewn the rest of the way. I am sad to say it's not done yet. I took it with me when I went to baby sit my granddaughter Palmer, but she's pretty cute and distracted me. :-)
But hey the month isn't over yet so I have time to finish it up and besides the bachelor is on tonight so sounds like the perfect project.
Looking forward to my February "ME" project.
