Just thought I'd drop in with an update. I haven't been great at keeping the blog current with all my projects, but as of today, I have a few finishes and some other projects in progress I thought I'd share. And before I share them on Instagram, this is a first! ;-)
I quilted it in a Denyse Schmidt style scroll on a Bernina 710 I have been playing with over here.
What was I saying? Oh yeah, I backed it in my favorite Flea Market Fancy print and machine bound it in a teal print from Domestic Bliss from Moda. I love the way it turned out, and I'm pretty sure it will be one of my very favorites.
I have too many favorites. :-)
I also finished up the Summersville quilt I started last summer. FINALLY! It was about halfway quilted in a dogwood pattern, I just had to finish it up and bind it.
Why did it take me so long? Aiden (my oldest) has already claimed this one.
It felt so great to get those two finished up this weekend, and while I was on a roll, I decided to use all my pins to baste something else. Which reminds me, I need to take some photos of that!
And last but not least, an APQ update!
I haven't made any real progress on that one since my last post, aside from getting my pieces about half way cut out and making the first block.
But I did get my APQ magazine in the mail a few days ago, and read all the blog posts, which were fantastic! This one from Carrie explains the whole thing so much better than I did, and this update from Sherri makes me want to stay up all night and work on mine!
(Lissa's finished quilt. Amazing, right?)
See, I've been planning on getting moving on it this week (since the big kids are back in school), but then today this tiny boy went and turned 3 years old. Can you believe it?
Neither can I.
I can always sew tomorrow. :-)
So to sum up, two quilts quilted and bound, one more basted, one half cut out and trying to keep me from getting any sleep, and a brand new three year old. Now you know whats going on over here, hows your sewing coming along?
