I haven't found the time this week to get on the computer so here is a week's worth of posts in one day :)
Or not! I took this picture last Wednesday with full intentions to pick away at it a little at a time over the week. That obviously didn't happen. It looks a little better than this but I will hold off posting photos until it's done. I have big plans for that scrap pile though!
Most of my time has been spent working on this custom memory lap quilt. I had hoped to ship it tomorrow but the quilting is taking significantly longer to complete than I estimated.
I am outlining all of the squares in each block and then doing organic lines in the sashing. This means lots of turning and lots of pushing the quilt through the throat of my machine. Thankfully the more pins I remove the easier it is getting but still...
My sister requested a purple butterfly bib for her baby as a Christmas gift. And my mother requested a minky blanket bound in satin for Rayanna to keep at Grandma's house. I don't often use the word never (I've been proved wrong too many times LOL) but I feel I can confidently say that I will never use sating binding again. There was a LOT of cursing, screaming and pouting in the binding of this. Worst part: I'm not even happy with the end result. The spot where the ends overlap is U.G.L.Y. But I'm hopeful that to a 6 month old it will just feel soft and warm and made from love.
What have you been up to this week? If you are in the US do you have a long weekend? Will you spend it sewing?
