Item one was to assemble the t-shirt quilt top -- nearly there I just have to add the borders and then the top will be complete. They still need to be pieced but I was putting them up on the wall to make sure that the top was still going to fit the backing that I found while out this weekend--- it's Star Wars Minky style fabric which means I won't have to add as much batting to this project.
Next I wanted to practice more FMQ on the guild top that I had finished last week -- now all I have left on this cutie is the binding and off to the guild she goes. I feel that the quilting turned out very nice on this one -- I used the frixion marker and drew all over the top before sitting down at the table, even though I didn't follow the lines.
I also got caught up on my Bible Studies block of the week series that is being hosted by The Quilter's Loft in Mooresville, NC -- check out their blog at http://quiltersloftcompany.blogspot.com/. I was 5 blocks behind and now I am ready for the new block coming out tomorrow. I am loving these blocks because it gives me the chance to use up my neutral scrap which I'm starting to run low on variety so I may be making a trip to Raleigh in the near future if I can't find something online to order -- perhaps I will try Craig's List.
I had already completed
(this one needs to be redone)
My hubby has requested that we make a project together and he wants a quilt of his favorite Transformer's character Soundwave -- here is the initial mark up using Paint.net software.
Well I know that the beginning of the week is going to be filled with working on that PP quilt, I want to have some quilting holding it together (or at least get all those pins closed) before I take it in for the final wrap up class on Thursday. I had a real blond moment with this one when I first sandwiched her together -- I closed about a third of the pins and then went to take care of something else and when I came back I just folded it up with the open pins and all. So now when I open it up to show people I make it rain pins. Learned that one at the guild meeting.
I was just notified that I will have another Traveling stash box coming my way in the next week and this one has plenty of patterns and fabrics that look promising to me.
Happy Quilting -- this has been the latest dish.
