New Year’s Sew-In Results

I started the New Year’s Sew-In with some exciting mail. First, I won a prize from Sandy at Quilting for the Rest of Us.

IMG_3671and some precuts.

IMG_3672Not a bad start to the sew-in.

I started on New Year’s Eve working on some hand piecing

IMG_3674which I finished on New Year’s Day.

IMG_3675On Saturday and Sunday, I also got in a bit of time with my machine doing some crazy quilting. Here are the fronts and backs of the blocks I did. (I forgot to photograph the back of the last one.)

IMG_3689And here is an interesting stitch I found.

IMG_3676I also tried the stitch editor to put a couple of stitches together.

IMG_3685I also did something that felt a bit scary. I updated the software on my machine for the first time. Luckily it went very smoothly, which I expected since the update has been available since September.

  1. That ribbon stitch with the green variagated thread looks amazing! And I love the color palette you won from Sandy! Lucky duck! 😁

    • I was feeling very lucky when I opened that package!
      I will be adding an lavender variegated and deep purple solid thread to this quilt also. There are, after all, 36 blocks.

  2. The crazy quilt is such a great way to try out new stitches!

    I love that hand pieced block you finished. It looks like a flower. Do you think it could be done by machine? Any idea what a quilt out of that one block would look like? I may have to play with it in EQ.
