Good Fortune Mystery Quilt – Finished!

Posted Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 in Quilting | Read More


I put the last stitch into the binding on Monday, April 22.  The quilt was loaded on the quilt frame for about a month before I decided how to quilt it. Because it is a very busy pattern, I quilted it with a loopy meandering design.

On Monday a group of friends from my quilt guild met at a local library to sew with our Featherweight sewing machines. This was the third monthly meeting of the Featherweight Club.  We worked on our own projects, visited, ate lunch, and sewed some more. Owning a Featherweight is not a requirement to join the group and you can work on the project of your choice. I started the morning sewing on my machine. Because I planned to take my Good Fortune quilt to the guild meeting the next day for Show and Tell, I switched to hand sewing the binding in the afternoon. I put the last stitch in the binding just as we were getting ready to stop for the day.

Joining Common Threads Ohio Quilt Guild has been one of the best things I have done since moving to Columbus. I have enjoyed sewing with others again.
