As it has been so ridiculously long since I’ve posted and who knows if and when I’ll be posting again, I’m choosing to make no excuses
I’ve been working on the machine quilting step of making quilts. This is really easy to get better at pretty quickly – and it seems pretty forgiving if you just use a nice overall stippling.
The tops of both of these quilts fall into the category of “winging it.” I guess I’ll work on my piecing after I get the hang of quilting.

First, a large lap quilt (almost twin-sized) that I made to see if I could actually make a quilt.
It has a few issues, but I really like it. It’s cozy and warm and feels homemade (but in a good way).

The top is just a slice of a log cabin, on a large scale. There might be a better way to describe this, but I don’t know what that would be.
The back (I think this is my favorite part:
Really, how cute and cheerful is this fabric?
Maybe some knitting next time. I’m trying out a new browser (Flock) and it seems like it makes posting to blogger really easy. Guess I’ll find out when I try to post this.
