Sorry I am late today with a blog post. I’ve had lots of visitors and have gotten behind on the blog.
I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t been quilting a lot either. Here’s what I’ve been up to.
I was to the thrift store and found some nice flannel. Two of the pieces were dog-related and I decided that I would make them into something for our daughter Kalissa’s new coming baby.
This one got hemmed and will be a simple receiving blanket.
I also found this …dog print flannel. I had the Minky in my stash. I plan to team them up together to make another little blanket for the baby. It’s on my to-do pile.
Can you believe the Double Wedding Ring quilt is still on the longarm. Oh my. I’m hoping this week that it will get finished. I had the same hope the last two weeks and still, it hasn’t happened.
Do you remember my big bag of goodness from a blog reader? It had included this…
I found my quilt book, Miss Rosie’s Spice of Life Quilts. You can find it HERE. I did some measuring and I am certain I can use the pattern to make more blocks and finish this into a quilt.
I ended up pulling some fabrics and hope to get cut soon. This will be the perfect quilt to donate to a worthy cause. Feel free to sew along with me.
I am still working on my Hawaiian Sunset quilt. I got all of the flying geese pressed and sewn into strips.
I kept working and got a block made.
I loved it so much that I made the rest of the blocks.
I am stuck here at this point because I don’t have the dark-dark blue that I need to keep going. I need a small print in a very dark blue that’s also a reproduction fabric. I looked online and didn’t find anything that fit. I found something that could work but didn’t love it. I’ll try to get to the quilt shop sometime in the next couple of weeks.
I have plenty of other things to work on so I’m okay.
That’s all I have to share on the sewing front. I’m off to wrangle the grandkids that are here. So far, just four but two more are coming. It’s gonna be a big day. Obviously…no sewing, but as I say, People over Projects.
