I started the 2012 Craftsy Block of the Month around the beginning of the year, and I got really excited about it and made several blocks right away. Then I started something else and the blocks ended up in a box, so the project sat for a while.
This is the largest quilt that I actually quilted on my own, and I was terrified through most of the process. At first I was tempted just to send it off to be long-armed like the last quilt I made. But I decided if I keep putting off tackling free motion quilting then I would never learn how to do it. So I took the beautiful Aurifil thread I got from my HMQG meeting and dove in head first.
The quilt god must have been looking over me too because literally as soon as I finished quilting my machine warned me that my bobbin was running out! Halleluiah!
