Finished Binding, originally uploaded by jenib320.
Finished up the last 1/3 of the binding tonight. It's all pressed and ready to go! I can't wait to get the quilt back and sew it all up! I can't believe how quickly it has come together with how busy I have been with school! I'm so excited to use it and say "I made this!". I have been sewing for a few years but the vast majority of my projects have been small. This is by far the biggest project I've ever undertaken and so far I couldn't be happier with how it has turned out. I can't wait to start working on my next quilt!

After completing the binding I made a couple little things for a friend's birthday. I have lots of pretty flannel patterns from Black Friday at JoAnns a few years ago so I thought this was a good excuse to cut into them!

I got my first taste of printmaking today in my 2D Design class. We are doing a unit on printmaking making mono-prints. The guest artist, Callie Haplea, did a demo/workshop with us explaining her techniques and introducing us to the process. She uses mainly stencils and textures using everyday materials. It got me really excited to get into the studio and start experimenting! I have always been really intrigued by printmaking and am really excited to get going!
