String Challenge and More

So I did get a little time in the sewing room over the last week.

First I got my Daylilies quilt off the frame.

I know I had said that my plans were to put Baptist Fans on the quilt…I changed my mind and stippling happened intstead.  I had hoped to have the binding off and ready to show it off today but a cold put me on the sideline.

I did get the binding tacked down….

….I switched gears and finished the baby quilt.  See?

I wrote about that on Friday.  If you missed that post, find it here.

As the calendar has flipped to October, I’m starting to get a little nervous that my deadline for finishing up all the string quilts is approaching quickly.  As of now I still have THREE left to finish form Bonnie Hunter’s String Fling book.  Daylilies is so close….Pineapple Crazy is a top….Tulip Fields is started.  My goal is to make a backing for Pineapple Crazy and to get it loaded this week….my other goal is to get Tulip Fields pulled out and sitting at on of the machines.  It’s been a bit since I did some string quilting and I love doing it so once I get it all out, I know I’ll quickly be addicted.

With a little push, I’ll get these finished. Hopefully this cold doesn’t keep me down too long.

    Love everything about your daylilies quilt. how exciting that it is nearly complete. With this crazy midwestern weather, is it any wonder there are lots of colds happening.

    Daylilies is almost done and I really like the binding fabric, looking forward to seeing it finished. It really is a lovely quilt. I’m off to a quilt retreat this week and I’m busy trying to pack projects I hope to finish while there.

    I love the Day Lilies quilt. What color thread did you use to quilt it? Did you change colors from the light to dark areas?

    Since I broke my wrist 3 weeks ago, all quilting has come to a stop. Surgery on it and a week later, a week in the hospital didn’t help. I now have a new cast that enables me to move my fingers more. It also doesn’t hurt quite as much when I try to use my hand to do things. I’ve been able to do some hand work, but that is about all. On Ringo Lake is ready for quilting, but will have to wait a little longer.
