Last Sunday I was in the sewing room and did more string piecing in an effort to work on the Spider Web string quilt I’m trying to make for the great niece’s wedding.
On Monday I had grandkids here so over naptime
I trimmed the blocks and pulled papers.
I’ve told you before that I typically work on about three projects at a time. Most are in different stages so I work on whichever one is convenient for the time and place I can work. So on Tuesday when I had Anders, my grandson at my house, I switched projects.
Do you remember I was working on the scrappy oversized flying geese? Well, I cut out everything I could for them.
On Wednesday I had some free time so I was in the sewing room. I got all of the Spider Web String blocks sewn.
I also sewed a bunch of the Scrappy Oversized Flying Geese. I sewed lots and then stopped. The next day I ironed everything I had sewn again at a convenient time.
Sunday I had machine time again. I got the center of the Spider Web String Quilt together. I kind of wish I could make it bigger but I am out of the black fabric and don’t know for sure what brand it is. I have inner borders and outer borders to add yet. After they are on it will likely be about 70″ x 70″. My goal was more of the picnic-sized quilt so, I think it will work.
I was able to work on the Scrappy Oversized Flying Geese too.
I have a stack from that I will need to iron. YAHOO!! I’ve kept this project moving along nicely this week as well. I’m so happy about that. I’ll iron these today over naptime while the grandkids are here. I’m getting close on this one and might be able to have this be a top by the time I report in again with you. I’m really liking this one!!
That’s what I was up to this week. I stayed pretty focused compared to my usual self. I really want to see both of these projects finished…the spider web string so I can gift it and the scrappy flying geese because I want to see how my idea for the quilt will work out. Both reasons are great motivation. What are you busy doing?
