|Wishing Rings was my August One Monthly Goal.
All of the instructions to make this quilt are free at the Temecula Quilt Company blog HERE.
Sewing all these little blocks together seemed endless, but I finally
|For the first time, I did straight line quilting.
I should have counted my steps as I walked back and forth in front of my machine--lol! I didn't strive for exact spacing--the stitched rows are random and mostly done to avoid seams.
|This is truly a scrappy project all the way through.
The blocks were completely made from scraps and so was the backing.
These backing fabrics were cut-offs from other quilt backs.
|The binding was already made--for another project.
Apparently I made binding twice for my Arctic Circles quilt--doh!!
There wasn't quite enough of the pre-made binding, so I had to raid my little box of binding scraps to finish it off--nothing wrong with a little "making do", right? This entire quilt ended up being made from leftovers in one way or another. Even the batting is pieced together from leftover pieces. Thank goodness for Heat Press batting tape!
It's such a good feeling to use up and make-do.
