It has been months since I did much sewing. I’m not sure why. Yes, we were busy with the kitchen for a big chunk of summer, but even after that work died down, I just couldn’t get back to my sewing machine. Maybe it was how messy the room was, or the huge pile of unfinished projects was too overwhelming.
But today there was actual quilting! My Scrappy Stars Around the Corner quilt has been sitting, pin basted, since last spring, and at long last it now is quilted.
I went plain with the quilting, using stitch-in-the-ditch (which for me is often stitch-near-the-ditch) on diagonal lines. I used pale gray thread on top and navy in the bobbins as the backing is pieced from blue and black fabrics.
Next up, binding.
