Kelli was home yesterday and we decided to make it a sewing day!
Kelli brought her Smith Mountain Morning things hoping to finish up the quilt top….
Oh it’s amazing! It is from Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps & Shirttails II: Continuing the Art of Quilting Green. She made it bigger than the original pattern so it’s monster sized!! I am hoping to put in on the quilt machine and get it quilted in the next day or so.
While she was doing that, I was busy sewing on my Nine in the Middle quilt.
This is from Bonnie Hunter’s book Adventures with Leaders & Enders: Make More Quilts in Less Time! This quilt really surprised me. It had been languishing in my UFO pile and now all I can think is..WHY?? Why did I just let this quilt sit? So far, I really LOVE it. The pattern calls for a solid border around the outside…I don’t have anything here that will work so I am bringing the quilt with when we go to Country Threads’ big event next week.
Yesterday was a good day…I love when I sew and can see that I accomplished something!! I am off to pull another UFO!! Who knows what gem I will find!
