I hope everyone had a pleasant and safe 4th of July. I stayed home, enjoying the piece and quite, to keep an eye on the shop. My big Whoop - finishing those 5 bindings that were on the 'to-do' list for the week. A lot of red.white, and blue in there. These are the backs as some projects cannot be revealed just yet - BUT they are all done!
One of those binding projects - finishing up "Little Baskets" from the Simply Charming Minis book.
I believe these were extra blocks I made during one of the Temcula Quilt Co projects - that poor little top sat for quite a while - finally it is a finish. Oh, did you see the latest Temecula mini? 2.5" finished baskets - and yes, I made one - and that is all I will be making - I have lots of MINI projects on the go and need all those tiny parts. My little basket will become a new name tag badge for Quilt Guild.
The last binding project I can share - finished up the hidden spool quilt that I found in the 'under the bed' tote that held my Christmas fabrics. Such a shame I hid that away.
A first - I did a lot of micro stipple on this one and it took forever!! And lots of thread.
Yes, lots of thread has been used and thankfully my cone order came in the nick of time. I went thru two of those smaller spools in 3 weeks - yes, I sew a lot!
Yes, leave me alone and I sew like crazy!! Two more blocks for the
Flower Patch Quilt.
The next block for the Quilt Doodle's 2013 BOM. I really love this Birds & Berries fabric.
And the next two blocks for BeaQuilter's Sampler.
There has been a lot of new BUTTONS added to the side bar so take some time to browse them all - I am sure there is something there for everyone.
Please consider taking part in 100 Quilts For Kids - I have a quilt in progress from my left over scraps and a panel of The Lorax.
AND my helpers................
Well, Bella was sitting here first and when I came back with the camera - Moe!! Magic!! Bella drawn to the red and Moe drawn to the black. He got a swat as my little tubs of pieces got scattered to the floor as well as the pins. Don't forget while you are working up your quilts - The Pets On Quilts parade is coming up fast - August is around the corner.
