It was another busy week--I feel pretty good to have some finishes, since I have so many beginnings too.
|My Little Flags quilt is finally quilted and bound and can be checked off my 2016 Finish-A-Long list.|
|I used several different binding pieces from my leftover binding box--a little make-do.|
|And, of course, it's not finished until the label has been added!|
|I was on a roll getting little quilts finished--my tiny cake stand top is now a quilt too! Another one checked off the List!|
Since these blocks are so small (2") I was afraid of overwhelming them with thread. I just did some stitch in ditch in the blocks and a crosshatch in the setting triangles (that I left untrimmed so the blocks would "float"). I used YLI silk thread in the top and Aurifil in the bobbin.
|After the long arm quilter's meeting on Friday, I met up with my friend Sandi to do the World's Shortest Shop Hop. Naturally, I had to make some purchases--it would be rude not to!|
|I have my Dawn Heese baskets ready to stitch. I had started with a dark blue background (which I loved), but it seemed so similar to my Buttermilk Basin blocks. After rummaging around in my bin of neutrals, I came up with this Kathy Schmitz garden themed fabric. It's a bit busy, but I think it will work out. Unfortunately my block one is backwards. I had flipped the patterns in my printer program to trace my fusible and then used it as my placement guide--doh! |
Oh well--I'm ready to do some relaxing stitching today and I hope you find time to do the same!
