Thank you all for your lovely comments and thoughts while we here in the NorEast have been in another storm front. We had heavy winds right up til this evening, so after catching up on blog reads, e-mail, comments - I am finally here. Boy, want to get a lot done - step away from the computer. I decided it was time to start playing with my Let's Book It project. I am not totally fond of this technique and I will struggle thru it. BUT, we don't know what we can and cannot do unless we try - and this will evolve.
I pieced up the cross-stitch so now I have to think on how I want to quilt this one. That's not a Batik, it was all I had left so the selvedge is gone, but I think it is an older Ro Gregg line - something to do with Arizona and the deserts I believe. But it is used up along with 3 other fabrics in this - yup, all scraps.
That pile of pink blocks got put into a flimsy and I pieced the back. We have another storm/snow coming later in the week so this one will get quilted then.
My first Sweet16 is now a flimsy. I have to see what I have for backing. All my wide cuts just don't work with this, so I will be piecing a back again.
I did get some quilting time in too. That little baggy of scraps that turned into log cabins is now finished. Just a simple stitch in the ditch, but done. And another project that finished up completely with scraps - even the back and batt.
And the other scrappy log cabin baby quilt for my guild charity drive - done.
I had just enough of this Banana Yellow double fleece from a previous quilt to back this. My go to serpentine with this fabric and it quilts up really fast.
And a little bit of brag time
With some mom's help, this guy designed and stitched up his first sewing project. And I hear he is hooked now............
because he had to make a second one. Well done buddy!! Oh, that minnion in the back - just want to squish him.
And mom got some machine time in too. I love the little bear fabric in this!
See what happens when we'z get'z snow'z in - we'z get'z buz'y!
