As I told you, I haven’t been feeling the best. I’ve been putzing around the house but not really accomplishing a lot. One of my favorite things to do is play on EQ (Electric Quilt) but I typically don’t allow much time to do that. I decided to indulge.
I had seen a picture of a vintage quilt on Instagram that I liked. It looked like a good quilt that would use up a lot of my strips. Here is a picture of the quilt. Oh, be still my heart. It’s a scrappy girl!!
I played around on EQ. I came up with this…I modified the chain blocks to make two different kinds.
Here it is the no stitching lines.
I modified it a bit more and came up with this…notice the black along the sides?
Here it is without the piecing lines.
Hmm. That was fun. I just might make this one. I love the scrappiness. What way do you like it best?
I was in the sewing room a bit…not a lot. I had hoped that I would have a bunch of time off and be able to sew my days away. Being I’m not feeling well, that really hasn’t happened. I try to focus on one thing and make it my goal to try to do at least one thing in the sewing room every day.
I machine quilted some small pieces…this pet-themed quilt. I think the Cresco ladies made this.
I made a backing and machine quilted this one too. I’ll show you more of them after I get the binding done.
These will both go to a Humane Society benefit being they are pet-themed.
Another day I bound this quilt…
..and another day I bound this quilt. This is my Two-Step quilt. It’s going to be gifted to Georgia. She transferred to a big girl bed and needed a quilt. Kelli and I thought this one would be perfect.
Other than that, not much has happened in the quilting room. I have my fingers crossed that I’ll feel better this week and hopefully tackle a few more things.
