Rainbow QAYG: the Reboot


Well, since January really kicked my butt, I'm going to make the most out of February!  I've already made a giant list of everything I want to do, but I'm going to pare it down to just the things I want to complete this month.  And since my eyes are usually bigger than my sewing box, I'm going to try to be realistic and only have a couple things on my "Must Finish" list.


This is one of the first things I want to get done.  It's the Rainbow Quilt-as-you-Go quilt I "finished" a while ago.  I'd sewn it together and sewed the top to the backing when I realized that it was quite lumpy.  All my blocks were slightly warped (which might still work itself out in the wash) so they bubbled in the centers.  I was so frustrated at that all that work hadn't turned out perfect, that I just rolled it in a ball and stashed it in the corner of the sewing area.


After some grumping about it, I realized that doing some hand quilting in the centers would attach them better to the backing so there'd be less lump.  So I grabbed my collection of Perle Cotton and got to work.


With all these little decorative stitches, it's turning out to be one of my favorite projects.  I know I'm going to love cuddling under it and tracing all those stitches.


And this guy is loving sitting next to me while I stitch.  He gets to pull the needle as it comes up from the bottom.  A very serious job!
