|Got a big boost this weekend!|
- Da Noob met the goal of assembling her sewing room. She also may lose her title soon as more brand new quilters are joining our little sewing family.
(To that point, a quick outing to Fabric Depot happened on Saturday morning. The Quilt Guru met me there along with a darling in-law who is relearning how to sew. For now, she is working on clothing for her darling offspring, but soon she will be learning to quilt. Turns out her gramma is a long arm quilter. Huh. It was meant to be!)
- The QG herself not only had the baby blanket ready to quilt (as I predicted) but this weekend she quilted it & bound it. It's wash and ready for a label. She also finished quilting ANOTHER project and has started the hand stitching on the binding! Good work!
- And at my house? It was full on sewing frenzy. This quilt is 35 columns wide and each column has 32 pieces in it. On Friday morning, I had 1/2 the column pieces in baggies and ready to go, and the other 1/2 listed out but not yet cut/sorted. Last night, I turned off the light on all 35 columns finished & pressed, and the first 18 sewn into pairs and pressed again.
Not too shabby, eh?
About 1/2 the columns - ironed
(also one of the most visually confusing pictures ever)
Here are some pictures:
|The Manchild pumping iron |
(and yes - that is a regular iron.
It just looks like a travel model when he holds it)
|All the strips - you can see the pattern starting to form|
(although 1/2 of them are upside down so not exactly)
|Gratuitous Cuteness (He's laughing at me - I'm sure of it!)|
