I am trying to sew and knit from my current stash, so I pulled out this lovely stack of soft colored fabrics a couple weeks ago. I love herringbone quilts and came up with this simple pattern to showcase the fabrics. I'm sure there is some kind of pattern or tutorial out there for a similar block, but I just winged it.
Each stage of the quilting process has been completely enjoyable. Except for the basting, I never like that part. This time was especially not-fun because I was out of basting spray. It has been so long since I've pin basted! I quilted the entire throw yesterday afternoon, it didn't take too long at all. I used a meandering pattern since that is the most fun for me. Quilting around those pins wasn't as bad as I remember! Now I need to slap some binding on, I'm so anxious to sit on the couch and hand sew the binding down... My most favorite part.
I hope you are well, those of you who have stuck with me here through all of those quiet months. Maybe next time I'll remember to pull out my real camera while I'm sewing so that I have more than instagram pictures to share. I completely forgot, I'm out of habit when it comes to blogging. At least I have these! I'm hoping to be in this space more, I have missed it.
