Kept It...

A while ago I almost threw this little quilt away.
It was made for an Amish Quilt exchange we did in
my quilt group,
but I didn't use it.
The quilting was too bad.

Just look at the corners!

I made another quilt for the exchange and threw this in a pile
of things on my counter.. with the binding pinned to the back.
Why finish it if it's going to be tossed?

The other day I was cleaning and found it and decided
to keep it afterall. Yes, the corners are not quilted well at all,
but it's a process. We don't reach perfection, or even "pretty"
So the binding was stitched down and here we are!

I do have some knitting from the last month or so.

I was trying to follow a pattern for these bright socks,
but started knitting it incorrectly.
Oh well... I like them this way!
It's time to knit the heel on this sock,
but I need about 45 minutes of uninterrupted time. 
It will get done.

And then I have a sock finish!

These are for my 29 year old daughter with the size 1 feet.
The yarn is from Hobby Lobby and is their
"No Wool" brand.
I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn.

Happy Friday!

Your Amish quilt is great, I am so glad you kept it! I love all the socks, but the pair on the bottom is my favorite, fun colors!

What a nice collection of socks. I, too, usually have more than one pair going at a time. Yesterday I did both heels on a pair and then discovered I made a huge mistake on both so this morning I will be ripping them out and planning a do-over only this time the right way.

The quilting on the Amish piece looks fine to me. I am glad that you are keeping it.

I love all your socks, especially those wild, bright green ones. That pattern does stand out with that yarn so well.
