A Mini Machine Finish

Does it feel like when the daylight hours get shorter, the amount of time also reduces? Thanks to Covid, activities have changed completely. On a weekday, I get up at 5:40 am and go for a walk, returning by 6:30. This is new since I stopped going to the gym–initially it replaced my drive to work, now I walk earlier. Yes, it’s cold and dark, but it does make me feel better all day. Then I make breakfast and pack my lunch and head off to work. Usually home by 4 or 4:30, then another walk if pleasant, then supper. At least twice per week i then spent 60-90 minutes sending emails or in a zoom meeting to support La Jeunesse Youth Orchestra board of directors.

Somehow I’ve still being getting time to sew. This mini has been languishing since 2018, when I made two tops for a swap, one to give away and one to keep. Well, the #whiteelephantquiltswap2020 was my impetus to get it finished and sent away.

Love the back too.

I outlined the sewing machine, then free motion quilted various designs to fill in the machine background and border. Finish is 20 inches square.

Anna Maria Horner and a few other modern fabrics.

Some lucky person will be receiving this mini quilt, and I can cross another WIP off my list! Linking to TGIFF with Vasudha at Storied Quilts.
