It seems that each Wednesday, when I look at my WIP, I have less and less to show for a week’s sewing!
Here’s my WIP report for this week:
Unicorn Stars Quilt
This week’s stats:
Completed projects – 1
New projects – 1
Currently in progress – 2
This Drunkard’s Path mini is all I have to show for this week.
I decided to make it because I came across TNT Thursday recently and I thought (this is TTT as well!) it was a great idea. I usually aim to try something new each time I quilt, which hasn’t been too hard for me so far because I’m quite a newbie at quilting and not particularly prolific. I like to work like like this because it’s a good learning curve and gives me an excuse for not being perfect – who expects to make something perfect on their first attempt! Perhaps the longer I go on the harder it will be to find new things. Or perhaps, if I go on forever there will be always more to learn – I hope so. The drunkards path mini was my first attempt at drunkard’s path blocks (and first curves except my Christmas table runner swap). It was also the first time I tried hand quilting solely for texture, rather than a sort of embroidery. I used a fairly random all-over running stitch and I found the coloured segments ended up a bit bulgy although they had started flat before the quilting…I still have a lot to discover before I can quilt with intent, rather than just stitching and seeing what happens.
