It's ok. nothing to write home about. SO instead of starting YET ANOTHER quilt that would soon turn into a UFO (quilting term - unfinished object), I decided to quilt and bind it and use it as a snuggle quilt for tv time.
Boom! Quilted and bound and I think I actually like it!
Wonky scrappy back...orphan blocks, shirt backs, little 'o this, little 'o that. Scrappy happy!
This quilt has no pattern - it's just a bunch of 5" squares and 5" 9-patch blocks with a 6" piano key border. I quilted it with "Pipeline" from #UrbanElementz. The binding was sewn on by machine. I do not do hand-sewn binding because I've mastered machine sewing them!!! hahaha...ok, but seriously, the back stitching of the binding looks just like the front and because I will NEVER enter my quilts in a quilt show or any competition, I say screw it. Why hand-sew when I have a sewing machine (or 10)?
I threw it in the washer with a color-catcher and it came out of the dryer soft and squishy and comfy and everything a quilt should be.
EIGHT more UFO's in the pile....and what did I do tonight? I started another quilt. shhhhhh.....
