Finish Friday: Bliss Quilt
Amandajean of "Crazy Mom Quilts" is hosting a "Finish it Up Friday" link party starting today, and it's perfect timing to share my Bliss Quilt that I finished binding this week. After the wash, you can hardly tell that it has 2 different styles of quilting in it. Previously, I have not been a huge fan of the "crinkly quilt", but this quilt changed my mind LOL!
I started this a year ago in the "That Girl That Quilt-a-long" as a Christmas present for my (now) 4 year old niece. I finished up a quilt for her sister from the same quilt a long, as well as 2 other (4 girls in the family!). But as I've mentioned over the last year, this quilt has caused me much much frustration as I tried to quilt it. Now, I fell like this quilt has so much "bad karma" that I don't want to give it to such a special person. So for now I'll keep it.
What about you? Do you feel the same about quilts? That part of your energy goes into it? Would you still give it to a friend or family member? Or would you start from scratch and make a new one instead?
Regardless, I'm very glad that it's DONE. It's really a very pretty quilt, just not my style at all, and in our testosterone-loaded household, it kind of sticks out, but I learned a great deal from it!
