There were only two things on my list last week.
- Sew down hanging sleeve on Dancing Flowers and get it washed – Done
- Clear at least one folding table in my sewing room. It’s getting deep in here. – – In progress
I’d show a picture of the room as it is this week, but it’s hard to see the changes. You’ll just have to believe me when I’ve said I’ve made progress. What can I say – I got distracted – but it was a good distraction.
I’ve finally finished the baby quilt! A baby girl quilt has been on my list since at least May. I promise I was cleaning my sewing room, when I got the urge to get this top quilted. I think it might have been receiving an invitation to a baby shower where I need a “boy” quilt. I couldn’t very well skip ahead to that quilt when this quilt is going to a baby who is now 2 1/2 months old. It also helped that I was able to pull a piece of batting out of my batting box that was the correct size 🙂
Here’s a closeup of the quilting. Nothing fancy – diagonal lines through the green, resulting in a X on the white squares and a curvy 1/4″-ish on the petals. I used a light pink thread.
The backing is the pretty green floral I bought at the end of May on a shop hop. The binding and label is a pink Marble I had in my stash.
So what’s up for this coming week?
- Continue working on the sewing room. I think this project is going to last all month.
- Find batting for the baby boy quilt. – the backing and binding are with the top.
