Last week was a fun week for packages at the house -- I sent out my 80's projects , received my 80's project (Alex really outdid herself), got my interchangeable walking foot, got some fabrics in 2 traveling stash boxes and sent out my fat qtr to my swap partner through Facebook.
That is a Sew South Duffle Bag -- my guild mates that went to Sew South were very impressed at the workmanship and I love it because it holds about quilts and I will be taking it with me to set up at events. I had it all loaded for the sit and sew and it had (6 projects in it and all my supplies).
Saturday I should have worked on getting some UFo's completed and ready for the display this weekend but instead I made a new project. I wanted to make a designer star from my buddy Lee's pattern but wasn't able to do the class last weekend so I went it alone and this lovely appeared on my wall.
I used the modified pattern sizing chart and made it out of 4 inch squares instead of 9 inch squares. I did the echo quilting at the sit and sew and am very happy with the results. (needs binding -- ick)
Between Saturday quilting at home and Sunday at the sit and sew I was able to get quite a bit accomplished all my Mug Rugs got prepared for quilting and these two are waiting on finishing.
I finally finished the blue modern for the guild donation
I also worked on quilting my string "star"
Just some straight line quilting using my new walking foot. (needs Binding -- ick)
I got the elephant parade and t-shirt quilt pinned and ready for quilting -- I might be able to get this one finished this week and ready for the show.
I must have been on a quilting high because after the sit and sew I also put together the bonus block for the block of the month -- it's a lotus flower block.
and nearly cut my thumb off with the rotary cutter (but no blood on the project-- so score for me)
I know what I need to finish up by Friday this week in time to take it to Kernersville by 5pm.
-- stitch up all mug rugs in progress (I believe there are 8 or 10)
-- Make tea cup pincushions (5 in progress currently -- would like to get at least 10 made)
-- bind string star, storm at sea and designers star
-- quilt elephant parade
-- finish up paper piece (maybe)
-- rewash quilts as needed
-- pick up raffle quilt (yay a shopping trip)
-- finish up all crochet works in progress with detail work and eyes
We shall see what I am able to accomplish.
another Happy Note of my weekend was surprising Brenda Rothrock with a triple chocolate cake for her birthday -- she surely deserved a sweet surprise.
That's the dish for now -- happy quilting everyone.
