December ushered in sickness for Hubby and I. I haven’t been this sick in years!
This month, I am truly grateful for the ability to take a full deep breath, and breathe through one’s nose!
I wasn’t so sure that I would reach my 365 Challenge Goal for December, but I worked hard at it, and all the blocks are finished!
The entire project has been pieced on my little travel Gem Gold! I am so proud of her!
I have pieced all of the blocks together, and I have a 100″ square flimsy!
Some of the fabrics have more green color than the photos show…I cannot seem to get the color just right, but you have the general idea.
Next up, piecing the backing. The 365 will be marinating in the closet until such a time as I deem ready for quilting.
The flimsy is full of a bazillion seams. I don’t think custom quilting is the way to go, but I need to think on that. Sometimes I can’t help myself!
Then there are all of the scraps to deal with. They have been spread all over the sewing studio for a year. I can’t wait to get the room tidied up!
Would I recommend this project? Sure!
I gained confidence in my piecing skills. I also learned about contrast and value. I do think it helps to be a self motivated person, but there are Facebook groups to inspire and encourage members.
It also helps to remember that the 365 Challenge Project is not a race. There are people who complete their projects in 2 years instead of one. That’s okay!
Don’t compare your project with someone else’s project. I didn’t follow directions, and added sashing to my variation. I should have planned it better, but I am happy with it! Each project is unique to the maker! Have fun!
