After recovering from the marathon painting and cleaning session over the weekend, I got borders done and moved to sandwiching the quilt.
My standard quilting of 4" squares on point, allowing the t-shirts to be the focus, was wrapped up Thursday morning... leaving just the binding for the afternoon. Easy, peasy!
But before I could do the binding I had a little job to do... I left myself a little note on my Babylock Lyric, to remind me that I needed to do a cleaning before I continued sewing anything!
Well, okay then! At least I was polite and said "please." LOL!
I am waiting for label info from Mom & Dad, but once that is done it will be washed and dried and ready for a "formal" photo shoot. I'm thinking I need to find a track... it just seems fitting! 😉 Finished size is approximately 70" x 90".
Here are a few more close up views.
We were supposed to be going camping over the weekend, but there is a cold front coming through that has messed up our plans... There is actually a chance of snow!
And THIS is why I haven't planted any flowers. Ok, I'll be honest... I don't plant flowers because I don't like weeding. The truth is out. The few flower beds that I have are low maintenance. I do, however, have some seed for herbs that I want to get in the ground. I may do that quickly this afternoon before the rain/snow starts and then go hide in my studio.
With this finish it means that I have the entire weekend free to play and create and I have some fun ideas...
I'll be playing with some hexagons to sew one final block for our March trip to Texas/Louisiana. I hope it all works out as well as the plan in my head says it will! It was another of my quilting in my sleep ideas, so fingers crossed, I will have a really great idea to share next week!
Roseanne over at Home Sewn By Us has had a journal cover on her to-do list for a few weeks and I kept thinking... "I should do this too!" I will soon be in need of a new sketch journal so I gathered up several partially used composition notebooks and am ready for the project with some fun ideas for the covers.
What are YOUR plans for the weekend?
I certainly hope so! Leave a comment... I'd love to hear from you. 💗
