2016 Start with a finish!
I'm starting the year by finishing a quilt! I free motion quilted around each bow tie and background pieces and tried to do as much as I could with a continuous thread. I also ran it through the wash once so now it is soft and cozy. This is for a nieces son who graduated last May yes I am a little late but it took some time to find the right quilt pattern. He is an elementary teacher and I can just picture a little kid trying to get his attention "teacher, teacher, Mr K. Mr K!" then pinching his necktie and giving it a small tug "Mr K, Mr K"........hence switching to the bow tie in the classroom. I made a long skinny label with my machine, instead of stacking the information and trying to center each line I just made a continuous line of information. Time for a new project.
