Christmas QAL - June - Update
The binding got put on the quilt and by sitting and stitching a thread's length each time I passed her by - it is about half way done. This quilt is for someone else, so until they give permission it can be 'viewed', it will have to stay hidden.
I don't have any models for the aprons - the furries refused (the weather is gorgeous today so they are outside). They got finished and I have some items on my 'shopping list' so I can make up some cute gift packages.
I emptied out the 'under the bed' tote so I could really see what was in there - oh my, a quilt top from last year!! I have found some border and binding fabric, pulled a batt package, and today I will piece up a backing. This will be ready to finish off with next month's QAL weekend.
And I am pulling together my fabrics for the 'No Red/Green' challenge piece. I found some pieces in the tote, pulled my scrap barrels to find some pre-cuts that will work, went thru my basket of lites - I think there is enough here to play with my plans. These are going into a shoe box size tote so they are ready to play with next QAL weekend.
So I am pretty well on my way - today I will keep at that binding while doing a little machine piecing (clearing some orphans found) mixed with some much needed housework.
