Scrappy Finish


The photo memory quilt needs it's binding attached and stitched down.  The label is ready for a little edge finish and then attaching.  Then this quilt is ready to head out the door.


The client also brought me some old panel piecess to make pillow covers with.  These just need their buttons sewn on to be ready along with the quilt.

I have a few more commission pieces that need a finish off so I can get everything out the door in the next week or two.  When you've spent 20 of 30 days on the road with meetings, quilt shows and vending - it takes time out of your work schedule.  My Juki is still limping and I hope it keeps up (with lots of colorful words) so I can get things done.


And in all the scuffle of projects and road time, I lost poor Earlene.  Finally came across her looking for something else.  Just the black and a few embellishments (with the quilting process) and I hope to get her done.  The 'butterfly' strip is actually part of the Bleeker Street project and I have been using those into other projects.  It seems to fit Earlene and with some adjustments, it will be part of her border.

We have a few more days of a little warmer, sunny weather - but soon to change with that word 'snow' on the way.

Back to that binding,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  10. Love the quilts. It feels so good to finish things and as you say trying to get things done when you are away is always a problem. Love the Bag Ladies. I can't believe they are saying snow for you already! It is getting colder here and they say we are going to have lots of snow this winter but they say that every year!!! Hugs, Susie x
