W.i.P. - Vikings 3.0

*Picture-heavy post

As my sewing mojo had returned a little and because what shall be remembered as The Dark Sewing Machine-Less Days is looming, I made sure to get the machine sewing bits of the Viking quilt out of the way.

First, I finished piecing my backing.

Then I spray basted my quilt and got quilting.

I just love the details of the fabric.

Prepped binding.

I've decided to spruce up this cutie by adding hand quilting. Still so very excited about this quilt.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I've decided to take two projects off my list. They're not scrapped forever, I might return to them sometime later, but I feel like I've got so much on my plate right now and for the time to come (Christmas sewing will have to be considered soon, too!) that I needed a little purge and readjustment. Reduce the pressure.

Happy sewing!
