Indie

Squeezing this month's finish in just under the deadline.

Indie Quilt

I originally thought that I would quilt this with an all-over meander, but once I got the quilt on the machine I decided to try something else... Horizontal and Vertical squiggly lines in each of the sections. And it turned out to be a good exercise for me... I got accustomed to staying within the area of each block (better towards the end than the beginning), I got practice on how to get myself from one section to another (quilt in the ditch), and I found out I can't talk to Megan while trying to focus on the quilt (there's a little flub in there somewhere.)

I also changed my mind on the binding... I had a good bit of leftover backing, so I used it for the binding also. Waste not, want not - right?!?

I often find myself using leftover backing material. It at least matches the back.

The quilting looks great! If you didn't have to go to that pesky job of yours & could really spend some time with your longarm, you would be Angela Walters in no time.
