I actually accomplished a couple of things that were on my list from last week:
The label made and sewn on the Coin Quilt baby quilt, and mailed out today:
And I chose the fabric and pattern that I am going to do for the baby quilt for the shower in a few weeks (another baby girl!):
And there will be white on each of the blocks with these colors, (maybe some light green too?). And this is the pattern, which I will revise and make the size I want (I’m just using the layout):
Now that I have made that decision, here is a peek at a couple of other things that I have been either working on, or preparing for a project:
I have had this flag fabric in my stash for several years. I recently cut all of the flags apart, and decided that I will back each one with white muslin, and use the red and white star fabric to make a bias stripe. Then I will assemble them together to make a bunting (not with triangles but with rectangles) to hang on the front of my house for the July 4th holiday. I have trouble hanging my flag here, it either brushes on plants, or walls, whatever is in the way. So I think this will be a viable solution to my dilemma!
And remember this? My Spare Change Wallhanging:
I finally pin-basted it to a backing and using a plate to make a pattern to quilt, I drew overlapping circles all over the top. I have started machine quilting it, using invisible thread. I’m not sure that I like the invisible thread, it shines when the light hits it in just the right way! Not what I was looking for!
A learning experience!
And I did get five blocks cut out for the 9-patch quilt sew along. But not sewn, a long story here! So here is where I am on that list:
Quilt my Courthouse Steps Wall Quilt (and give it a proper name!) I actually did get the fabric together for the backing on this!
Decide on a pattern and the fabric for a baby quilt for a shower at work (it will be a girl!)
Make the label for the Coin Quilt I completed for my niece’s baby girl (born last week!)
More 9-patch blocks. I don’t feel like I can cross this off unless the blocks are sewn!
And to add to this:
The flag bunting,
Finish quilting the Spare Change wallhanging,
Maybe I had better stop here! I have actually started a couple of other projects (I’ll tell you about them tomorrow!), but I think that I have already been long-winded enough! That’s what I get for keeping it in all week, my apologies!
Take care, and thanks for taking the time to stop by!
