Feb Friday Night Sew In

I decided to join Sugarlane Designs for the Friday Night Sew In last night. I'm doing anything I can to find the motivation to work on my many unfinished projects.

I had already prepped my lap quilt for tying and decided to try quilting it instead. I got about halfway finished last night.
Then I finished up this morning/afternoon.
I think it needed more pins in it because the fabric shifted a bit, especially around the outside edge, but overall I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I still need to finish binding it to call this one complete.

My Pfaff sewing machine is not well suited to machine quilting. The throat is too small and it was a significant hassle to wrestle this quilt to rotate it. I might consider getting a machine that has more space so I can finish more of my own quilts.


  1. Your quilt looks absolutely lovely, but yes I can feel your pain with trying to wrestle a quilt around a small sewing machine. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  2. Well done on the quilting, great progress! I agree, it's hard work wrestling larger quilts in a small domestic - I do have a larger machine and love it!

  3. A very productive FNSI. The quilt looks great.

  4. The quilt is looking good. Good on you for having a go at the quilting
