I’ve been working for months and months on this quilt and I’m 5 blocks away from finishing it. The pattern is Elizabeth Hartman’s’ Fancy Forest. I had it on my wish list to sew for ages and a couple of Christmas’ ago I broke down and bought myself the pattern. And then it just sat there. Last year at some point I decided I was going to finally start working on it and bought all the solids. All the prints are from my own stash of scraps.
I’ve already learned so much working on it, but I’m so ready to start putting it all together! The biggest lesson came yesterday when my new 1/4″ foot came for my sewing machine and here I am on the last group of blocks with this amazing tool I should have purchased a million years ago! That and realizing that it’s better to stand and piece this versus sitting and standing every two seconds have been my biggest lessons.
It’s not perfect by any means and I’m working out how to piece and cut and do it all as close to perfect as possible. But I love it and I’m so proud of it.
