After a week away with our friends my productivity level upon my return was astonishing! And I didn't even work hard at it. I had planned on doing a Friday Finish post, but I was on such a roll I didn't want to stop.
✔Hanna's name bunting is adorable, if I must say so myself... and will be a perfect addition to the shower decorations and the nursery.
✔The labels for the two commissioned t-shirt quilts were added to the quilts and shipped off. This is the message I received from my customer...
"They are beautiful!!! I could never have gotten even close to that! I know I am going to reach out to you again. You are so talented. We hid them and need to get an occasion to give them!
The recipients of the quilts have not received them yet so I have removed their names from the top of the labels... But it is so nice to hear back from a happy customer. 💗
✔I have finalized the wrap-up for the Pieces From the Past sew along and sent it off to C&T Publishing for them to post as well. It will be released on Thursday. Instructions to finish the quilt are included and will go quickly.
✔The first three blocks for the Santa Fe Trail Sew Along are pieced! So far, they are all easy blocks, as I imagine that they may have been blocks that were simple enough to be among some of the first blocks a child just learning to sew would piece.
And as bonuses for the week...
✔I have ALL of the paper doll blocks (both quilts) with underwear and hair. They ready to outline stitch and give details to the bodies.
On top of all that... I sandwiched a vintage Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that followed me home from Texas. I have auditioned several quilting options and am waiting for feedback from my customer of her preference. You can see the options below...
Now I know what I will be doing for the week... But first I MUST clean my machines before I do any more sewing.
Which quilting design is your favorite?
I know for certain I will be doing vines and leaves in the green sections. Leave a comment... I will find interesting to see which designs are the most popular. However, in the end, my customer will have the final say. But I would like to hear from you too!
