I had a busy weekend in the sewing room. We had our family Easter last weekend so for Hubby and me, outside of Easter church, was much like a normal weekend.
I was really busy working on a deadline project. We had a quilt that will be featured in “Quilts and More” in the Winter issue. The project is due at the end of the month but I want it out of the house and on to them so I can check it off the list of things to do. I cut out the quilt out but then sent it on to Kelli when I had surgery. She got the quilt sewn into rows but then passed it on to me to finish as she is having a very busy month. Anyway, I got the top sewn together, got the backing pieced and even quilted.
Although I can’t show you the front…I can show you my backing. I was really careful and was fussy when I pieced the two pieces of backing together trying to match the two pieces the best I could. I was pretty impressed with how it turned out.
I was also busy sewing some things for me….
My Star Struck blocks are coming along.
I got several together, sewing leader and ender style, when I was working on the quilt top for publication. Then after I got the top finished quilted I treated myself and let myself just sew lots more of the blocks.
These blocks will soon be finished. I’m going to have to start deciding what I’m going to do for the sashing….I do think I want to do the same sashing that Bonnie Hunter did on the original pattern…but I don’t know if I want to use green….Hmmm. Any suggestions?
I have so many projects going at once right now…I love that. I know lots of people like to do one project at a time but not me. I like at least four or five going at once.
I’ll keep working on this over the next week. I want to get the blocks together but first I want to get that deadline quilt finished. All I need to do is the sleeve, label and binding.
