This board has been slow but I was wondering if anyone else has been more productive now that the summer is gone. I’ve been working on Halloween costumes, sweaters as gifts for Christmas, and I have made up backs and sent out two quilts for longarm quilting since I have given up on doing it myself.
@ Two friends and I have a sewing weekend kicking off this evening so I should have some new finishes. I am so close to finishing this quilt for a teacher who had her baby a month ago, just need to sew the label on, it didn’t attach quite right in the binding. This pic is just the quilt top around a month ago.
Another something today, in between working on PJs for the kids. After traveling as a family this past weekend, I decided that each kid needs their own “charging bag” that contains cables and power bricks enough for every device they travel with. This way I won’t have to unplug our regular cords, and we don’t have to shift and share in hotel rooms or VRBOs.
Here’s the bag I made for DD12. I have fabric cut for the bags for DS8 and for me, too. DH is in his own!!
Had a relatively productive weekend seeing with some friends. I am not improving or liking binding quilts any, I redid both of the small pieces before finishing. Then I had some bleeding issues with the quilt, so it was washed like 5 times.
Please don’t quote. Both small pieces are paper pieced.
