What have I been doing this week? First thing, I knocked out my row-by-row. Of course, that didn’t come from my stash. However, I came up with a cute little log cabin heart pattern to use. I made it up myself. Would anyone be interested in a copy of the instructions?
Next came finishing the purses for my daughter and her friend. They were here for only a few days in May and I didn’t have time to get them done while they were visiting. I got one done over Quilt Camp in May, but just finished the other this week. Found some packaging for them and hope to ship them out today.
Then I got to quilting on the dog quilt which is on the frame. No yardage usage from this project either. I am not done with a row yet, but have made the important “how will I quilt this” decisions and gotten started. I hope I have the fortitude to finish this quilting! I always get ambitious when I choose custom quilting, then later figure out how much I have let myself in for. I call that my “what was I thinking?” moment. I am doing some feathers, and so far am not satisfied with them. But I never am…..
And yet, I wasn’t done with my quilting efforts. I also worked on this heart quilt top which I completed yesterday. A group of five us (two pairs of sisters and me) have been friends for several years. One of us had a heart attack last fall, so the other four have been working on a little hug for our sister. The remaining four of us made heart blocks. I assembled the top.
