A finish

One of my quilting goals this year is to finish the 2 monthly projects I didn't keep up with last year.

On Monday I finished 'Under the Garden Moon... Snowmen on Parade'.  A row by row style quilt.  I love the colors and enjoyed all the different techniques used.  

 I've left it on my sewing room floor while I decide if I'm going to quilt it myself or take it to the long arm quilter.  I think I'm going to take it to the quilt shop because I just don't want to wreck it.  I like it too much to take a chance with my unpracticed machine quilting. 

I think I enjoy the process of piecing much more then quilting.  Quilting a quilt is an entirely different art then piecing.  I will use my machine to quilt smaller projects but I need a professional to handle the larger jobs.  

Now, if I could just be sure to wear blinders when I go into the shop.......


  1. Oh good, it's back! Love this, the snowmen at the top look like they're having a real party!

  2. I tried to comment on this back on Wednesday, but Blogger was acting up.

    Your quilt is wonderful! I especially love the band with what looks like spinning stars. And good luck finding those blinders...if you find a pair that works, please let me know!
