Sew Into Solids Progress

I tend to do this in giant gulps, followed by absolute starvation. Quilting, that is. Tiny things cause me to set it aside for weeks, then I pick it up and sew for six hours straight, two days in a row.

The Ironwork* solid quilt top is finished, and I’m nearly done with the pieced back (I had to use up the scraps).

I don’t usually pin my quilts because they usually go on the frame. I’m straight line quilting this one on my DSM, so pin I did. This Kwik Klip tool makes closing (and opening) the pins SO much easier.

Remember back in February when I mentioned the Sew Into Solids Quilt Along by Jane at Sew Create It and Katherine at Sew Me Something Good?

Although I haven’t been very good at progress photos, others have been. Check out the lovely projects in the Sew Into Solids Flickr pool. If you’re making an Ironwork* quilt out of solids, why don’t you drop your photos in there, too!

Meanwhile, I’ll keep quilting…

  1. I tend to quilt in a feast or famine fashion too. I collect tops and then all of a sudden I will quilt 3 quilts in a row… my finishes tend to be like buses…all coming in at once 🙂

  2. Add me to the feast or famine fashion… LOL

    Love how Ironworks is looking, Sandi! As if the front of this quilt isn’t totally beautiful, you made the back look just fabulous too. Well done!

    Hope the quilting is going well!

  3. Well, I’ve done it! I’ve read every post from 29 February forward so I am up-to-date with your doings! So good to have a faster internet connection!
