Little bits of progress. I don’t have much to show for the past weeks workings. I finished the Blackbird quilt (One in Every Crow(d)) and it is now hanging over my stairwell. I received my Sailrite machine and set it up, its heavy and pretty simple to operate. Couldn’t sew with it though as I was waiting on a delivery of proper upholstery thread and a few different sizes of needles for it. Maybe this week I’ll get started on the chair cover.
I have been steadily making four patches and squares for the French General quilt. I’m awaiting delivery on a few more FQs to finish those. It needed a bit more variety, isn’t that always the way? You start out trying to use up what you have for a stash quilt, but then there isn’t enough contrast or yardage. With this quilt I tried to buy just enough to finish it. I have a bunch of left over fabric from my El Camino quilt, because of the same issue with not enough variety, or yardage. I over-bought with that quilt, whole yards where a FQ would do. I still like the fabrics, and I am trying to come up with a design to use them in.
This week I also worked on my Fancy Forest BOM. I am almost done with the eight Hazel Hedgehog blocks. I also made a large Hazel (24 ” x 30″) for a friend. She has a small dog that likes to play with stuffed hedgehog toys. I thought it would be a cute quilt-let for him to sleep on. I’d like to get the blocks done for my Gravity BOM too, maybe later today.
I finished the quilting on Postcards from Sweden, I used the lipstick pink version of Tula Pinks “Freefall” on the back, its a very bright and cheery quilt. It needs a binding, I’m thinking gray or brown as I feel it needs to be framed some how.
Thanks for reading!
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday today.
