I had a pretty tough week as far as how I was feeling. I’m still not myself yet, so I putzed in the sewing room…and online.
I ended up pre-ordering this book. Of course, I did! I’m a real Lori Holt fan…and did you read the memo at the bottom of the book in pink? It says 32 Scrappy Quilts to Love.
You all know I love scrappy quilts. The book was $32.98 which is a little spendy…more than I would typically spend BUT…the book has 32 patterns and that’s more than double what a typical quilt book has. At least that’s my justification. The only problem. The book doesn’t come out until June I think. I decided to use some of the money I get from blog ads and treat myself.
In the sewing room, I got a few things done. Carla from Longarm Quilting Inspirations teamed up with me and did the longarming on a project I did…Do you remember this?? Push the play button to see the quilt flapping in the wind. I braved the 0-degree weather to get this video for you.
Carla did AMAZING work!! She is such a talent.
Here are a couple of other pictures I snapped before I had the binding on…
I just adore Carla’s work. I’m always impressed with her turnaround time too. You can find Carla’s contact info HERE. If you need a quilt longarmed, Carla does it all from custom work like on this quilt or pantograph designs. She regularly mails quilts out so if you live a distance, that’s not a problem.
Here’s your last sneak peek at the quilt as I’m sending it off to Quilter’s World. This will be their Fall 2022 issue so watch for that if you’re wanting the pattern.
This was such a fun quilt to make. It was a “something for nothing” quilt made of leftovers from my quilt and from several blog readers’ leftovers and my own. I love the challenge of it all.
I have more quilts planned with even more leftovers…This is my favorite style of quilting.
I had big plans to get everything in the sewing room caught up when I was off for my cancer treatments but so far, that hasn’t happened. When I don’t feel good, it’s so much easier to sit on the couch and cross-stitch. This week, I still haven’t felt very good.
I had set Sunday aside to be a big sewing day, but that didn’t really happen. I did sneak upstairs and I did a bit of stuff.
I cut more paper strips with the hope I can get back to some string piecing.
Those are for this quilt…
I bound another of the charity quilts I machine quilted. This one will go to the humane society for a future benefit.
I got the pieces for the borders redesigned in EQ for my green background quilt. I dug through some of the leftover pieces and found some I could use up. I’m trying so hard to use everything up in this quilt.
I have more that needs to be sewn but that’s as far as I got this week…Not a lot but I’m resting and realistically, that’s what I need to do at this point.
Hopefully, I’ll feel some better this week and accomplish a bit more.
