Ok, peeps! I'm really doing it. I'm finishing stuff. Ok, so far I've only finished one thing, but still...
Scary Bunny Quilt
Started Summer 2003, Finished January 2007 (sad)
I call this the Scary Bunny Quilt because those faceless bunnies freak me out. This is a classic example, to me, of a cute pattern and pretty fabrics that just should NOT be put together. The original pattern picture (no, I don't recall where the pattern came from) featured this quilt made up in sweet vintage fabrics, with a very country look. But we had just received these fabrics in the shop where I was working, and I had the genius idea to make this bunny quilt with them. I kind of hated it as soon as I got the bunnies ironed down (they are fused with Heat 'N Bond lite, then appliqued around the edges). I suppose that's why this has been shoved in a bin for almost 4 years.
I did manage to get it sandwiched with batting and backing, and I basted it together way back in '03. This week, I finally quilted and bound the dumb thing. And the quilting is HIDEOUS. I really did a crappy job, but I DON'T CARE! It is finished! Now it gets thrown in the washer and dryer (LOOK AWAY QUILTING PURISTS - yes, I machine wash and dry my quilts with regular old detergent) and it will be the back-of-the-car emergency blanket/beach throw.
Still lots of projects (sewing, knitting, and oh my goodness I forgot about cross-stitch and embroidery) but every one I finish is a step towards doing something new and exciting.
