Before I get to today’s post, I’m going to answer a question that has come up in the comments. I had several people ask about the quilt I just finished, Tea Party by American Jane. I shared this quilt in THIS blog post.
I had several people ask about finding the pattern. I did a simple Google search. I typed in “American Jane Tea Party quilt” and several options came up for finding the pattern. This is how the pattern will look.
The original pattern used pink whereas Kayla, my daughter, chose blue. I saw several places selling the pattern so you should be able to find one. Bonnie Hunter has a similar pattern for a split nine patch that you can find HERE. The American Jane pattern uses a similar block along with a regular nine patch.
Now to today’s post…
I had a very busy week. I was behind after just being home from the cross-stitch retreat. I had company and grandkids all week too so very little sewing got done.
I was able to iron and cut the strip sets I had sewn.
What a lot of strips!!
I got a few sewn together.
They are all in this basket waiting for me to have a naptime to iron them.
These are all for Tumalo Trail…It’s from the book Scraps and Shirttails II. You can find the book HERE.
I had this quilt on the longarm. It’s been here about three weeks waiting for me to longarm it. Finally, on Sunday I got to it.
I managed to finish the longarming. I’m hoping to get it bound soon.
I’m so happy to have the longarming done on this. It’s been over a year since it’s been finished and waiting for me to longarm it. I love the colors of this…I love the design of it too. I can’t wait to show it off to you all finished!!
I have grandkids here this week including sleepovers so I’m guessing it won’t be a big sewing week this week again. That’s totally okay. I did bring two projects downstairs and they are in the laundry room waiting for me to get some time to cut them out in between other daily chores.
