First WIP Wednesday of the New Year

Ahhh...another year of WIP Wednesdays. The biggest one on my list this week is my Fair Isle Quilt.
 Here it is, all pieced before Christmas. Then, I stalled out with no backing in sight. As soon as I solved that problem, I got down to pin basting on the floor.


 And got it all done. One of my least favorite parts of quilting. Hard on the knees and the back.
And now the quilting is begun. I am quilting in an all over swirly pattern. It reminds me of blowing snow. Very appropriate for a winter quilt, I think. Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

  4. I honestly despise the pinning process. Your quilt is fabulous and the quilting is perfect.

  5. The colours you chose for your quilt are marvellous! I love the quilt pattern, reminds me of a Norwegian ski sweater. The swirly quilting design makes a perfect finish....and yes, pinning is not my favourite part of quilting, either. Happy quilting New Year!

  11. I love the quilting! I think that will be quilting swirls on mine. I am not brave enough to freehand it on my machine, so I use Groovy Boards on the longarm still. Someday the braveness will kick in for me!
