I did it! I managed to finish Emma's quilt by the end of September. A while back I proposed a craft challenge to get people to finish the crafts they were working on or letting lay fallow, before you could start a new one. And finish it by the end of September. Of course, I cheated on that new craft part, but I also managed to finish one other project as well by the end of September.
Here's what I did: I sewed 5 Halloween napkins and 1 full-sized quilt.
See that pile of fabric squares in the picture above? That's what it looked like in mid-August. Here's what it looks like now (don't mind the fabric pen markings - I still need to wash it). It's cotton fabric on the front and flannel on the back and the borders, so it's nice and soft and cuddly. The batting is 100% organic cotton. Not bad for my first quilt, if I don't say so myself. And, did I mention I completely hand sewed the whole thing? A completely electricity-free made quilt?
I was thinking I wouldn't finish it by the end of the month and then figured that I'd finish it by her birthday at the end of October, but I went full steam ahead and got 'er done! Now I can start the pajama pants I bought fabric for when I was cheating.
How did you do? Did you finish what you started?
