I’m assuming ‘sewing’ is the correct subtopic for quilting? Please correct me if I’m wrong!
I wouldn’t call myself a quilter, but I’ve been slugging away at an applique quilt since I was in my late teens (and I’m now in my early 30s). There’s an in-progress pic - as well as the cautionary tale of how I got myself into this mess - in this blog post from a couple of years ago.
It’s adapted from a paint-by-numbers design for dessert plates - so many tiny pieces! Over the last few years I’ve finished assembling the applique motif, attached it to the front, and am now slowly quilting it all together. All by hand.
