My newly designed work station is a dream. My sweetie did a great job and the queen-of-folding-&-organization made it a warm, cozy, functional space.
This weekend, I finished ALL the quilting on the man-child's girlfriend's quilt top. I finished the piecing in time for her graduation in June but, as often happens, stalled out on the finish. But NOW I've got all the quilting done, the basting tacks removed, and the binding cut and pressed. I just need to square it up, add the binding & tags, and pass it on. Phew.
Hmmm - I guess I should add "Take Pictures" to that list.
The other big progress was on the Craftsy Candy Squares Quilt. I'd cut most the pieces and started assembling the blocks, but by last night all fifty of the 9-patches were complete, pressed, and attached to an alternate block. Next step - figure out the arrangement of those sub blocks and stitch it all together!
I also played with making little snap bags. The sample turned out pretty well (I know, where's the picture?) and I think these will be fun to make for the holiday craft sale as well as for little gifts.
So a great weekend quilting and enough progress to have me itching to hit the sewing room tonight.
Keep your feet on the ground!
