Me Sew Happy Quilt FINISHED! One Monthly Goal done!


 Oh, the feeling of sewing the last bit of binding on a big quilt is so satisfying! 

This was my one big goal for get this baby out of my UFO/WIP pile and have it ready to use when cooler weather hits. I got 'er done!

Above is Miss Flimsy in all her glory hanging in the backyard.

Aaaand...she is finished! (I know, you can't see much of a difference, but still...)

Of course, I was a bit short of my chosen black and white striped Tula Pink fabric, so a few pieces of black/white polka dot was thrown in...for interest, right? 

6 hours of FMQ loop de loops were put in sewing with hot pink Aurifil thread. 
4 1/2 bobbins were emptied!

Quilting this large piece on my domestic machine is what scared me the most. 
I took  my time, breaking it up into several days and it didn't seem so bad. 
I gained some confidence to attempt more big ones! 😁

Finished size is 64" square.
Pattern is MeSewHappy by These Clever Hands
