I didn’t get a lot of time in the sewing room this week. The foster dogs had me busy but I did manage to get some time over the weekend.
I pushed things to “full speed ahead” on the spider web string quilt UFO that I am making for my great niece’s wedding. It’s on May 20th so I really have to work hard on getting as far as I can get each week on it. I got all of the started pieces finished and trimmed. YAHOO!!
I prepped more pieces that I will need to do the string quilting on. I also started sewing the borders. I figured if I sewed strips together and got them ironed, I could cut them into units one day when the grandkids were here and napping.
That was a great plan as later…
I got them sewn together and now the borders are ready to be sewn on once I get the center finished.
Later in the week, I worked more on the string piecing of the blocks. I’ve had a good time with this and am making great progress.
My hope is that I’ll have the blocks done this upcoming week. I’m making good progress and think I can finish this on time.
I got a quilt bound that I showed you last week. I’ll tell you the full story on this later this week. I still need to take pictures of the quilt. As always, I used my Third Hand Binding Tool (HERE is a link for one. If you put in the coupon code “JOSENTME” you can get 20% off the entire site.)
That’s what I accomplished this week. I actually did really well considering I didn’t have much time. Hopefully this week I can use my time wisely again.
What are you all working on? I’d love to hear what you’re up to.
