I stuck to my plan this week, and was able to get the Split 9s quilt ready for quilting. That always takes me a couple days - cutting batting and backing to size, pressing, dethreading, spray basting. It's such a good feeling to get all those chores done!
Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year
Friday, December 8, 2023
I've been quilting a little bit each day, using my favorite serpentine stitch in a grid along the seam lines. I enjoy coming across all the scrappy squares I used as I quilt - owls, paper airplanes, hot air balloons, flowers, shamrocks, skiers, "Up, up and away!"
And here's a real favorite!
UFOs are a badge of honor!
Sometimes I need a break from the quilting, though, so I was thinking about what else I could work on, and remembered Blueberry Taffy. I made these blocks back in January, using crumb blocks I had made in 2022. I don't think I've pulled them out since then, so it's time!
There are eight more crumb blocks to turn into Taffy blocks, and that's something I can work on here and there when I need a break from quilting on the Split 9s.
