I’ve been busy this week but have nothing finished to show so I’ll save it for next week.
I did receive birthday fabric and cards from Vicky and Laura and will show them off next week. They are wonderful. Laura, that Christmas fabric will look great as the border for my Merry QAL quilt and possible the sashing! Vicky, you will definitely see some bibs and maybe some burp cloths made from the baby fabric. Thank you ladies!
I decided to make my rainbow cascade in a slightly different way. Instead of sewing one block at a time, I’m chain-stitching all the blocks at once. I have all the Section A and Section B pieces for the 20 blocks sewn and pressed and ready to trim. I hope to get the Section C pieces done this week and then I can start trimming and putting the blocks together. I will trim and sew one block at a time.
I’ve also started making a self-binding receiving blanket and will have it finished probably tonight or tomorrow.
Gee, I even ramble when I type instead of talk. Anyway, see you next week!
Sorry for the length of this post. A bit rambly!
After a productive week last week, I’ve been in a bit of a slump this week. I think that part of that is because I’ve been glued to the tv watching coverage of Irma. Finally heard from friends and family there and they all seem to be okay with minimal damage. Still worried about our quilting community friends.
I think my productivity is about to end thanks to a certain Rainbow Cascade challenge; that perked me right up. I have got the pieces precut for 5 blocks, printed out the patterns and am ready to start piecing! So I’m on the mark, set and ready to go!
I’ve received my first birthday FQ and I love it (thank you Jen). I’ll show next week along with any finished projects I have.
I’ve been watching videos and haven’t commented yet but I will.
The video is a bit dark but it is dusk here and my living room doesn’t have a ton of light.
My heart goes out to the people of Texas and surrounding areas who are in dire circumstances right now. Hoping to get a quilt out to Jen tomorrow or Thursday.
Pardon the long video. If I knew how to edit out the mumbling and ummming and hemming and hawing, it would only be 5 or 6 minutes tops!
