This is a quilt I made a long time ago, in January 2015, using the guild block lotto blocks from 2013-14. There’s a small blog post about it on the guild blog. And if you want to see all the block lottos you can look at them here.
I made the whole thing in a week but then just never got around to quilting it. Mostly because I wanted to do a full custom job but didn’t actually want to do that work. And if you never make a decision then you can’t make the wrong one, so I let it languish.
But this is my year for getting stuff done.
I went for really big loopy loops. Red was what I had on the machine for practicing and I just kind of liked it.
MQGsewday was yesterday so I made binding. Pretty binding.
And then I actually got it bound. I complained about it on IG but the gist of it is this: I always do my machine binding backwards from how most of the internet does theirs. So I thought I would try the “right way” to do it…and thereby shot myself in the foot. It was a slow, frustrating, challenging process. 90 minutes to do a quilt 57×75? But it’s done now and on a pic that small, no one can see the imperfections.
