This week's project sprang from last week's trip to the South Shore of Nova Scotia. While wandering in lovely Lunenburg, I popped into The Lunenburg Makery and picked up a kit for their row of the Row by Row Experience. One of my MMQG pals was working on it at our last Sew In and I fell in love! And buying the kit was the only way to get the wee Dory Shop sign. I was hooked!
Here's my wee finish - just 13 by 9 inches!
fishing stage. You can read a little more about the making of of this mini quilt on this Wednesday's WIP post or on my Instagram feed (@quarter_iInch_from_the_edge).
Taking the paper off is so much easier when you actually remember to shorten your stitch length! I highly recommend it!
And the water was pretty fun too! In case you were wondering, that's a traditional Nova Scotian dory. Not just a Disney character, they were used for fishing. When I was a kiddo, my grandfather had a big one he used to row on the lake, often with a gaggle of grandkiddies on board! I might just have to make another in barn red as a reminder of that fine craft!
Now that I've done a few matched bindings, I don't know what I ever worried about. They're nowhere near perfect, but they achieve the seamless visual I'm going for!
I intended to give this mini away, but the more I look at it, the more I want to keep it. One just never knows!
here. Don't forget to pop over to some of the other great finishes this week!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll come back on Thursday, August 4th for the one year anniversary of Throwback Thursday, my monthly link-up to showcase projects from our dark quilty pasts!
