Seems like I`ve been managing to pack a lot into my week-ends lately. By a lot, I mean a lot of sewing. May`s looking like a busy month, so I`m going to keep sewing up a storm in April.
Saturday meant another quilt therapy session with the Squares. It was a bit of an odd session project-wise. Q-A opted to work on a vest/shawl. Making clothes is not usually her forté, but with Q-B in the house, there was lots of support. She finished it up by day's end... I think there's a new outfit for work this week!
Q-B was also working away on clothing - her MotB dress for Miss S's wedding just 8 weeks away. There were a few setbacks, but she left at suppertime with more done than when she arrived!
Only Q-D and I were working on quilt projects. But shockingly, Q-D didn't even take her machine out of the car!
She was hand-stitching away on the binding of a sweet girl-y baby quilt. It's based on a pic from this website found on Pinterest. Here she is trying out my fancy new binding clips... part of a bunch of goodies sent to me by Adrienne over at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts as part of her Crafty Pay it Forward.
And today, I finished quilting both! I just
couldn't stop... I've even got the binding done for the wedding quilt.
I love the binding... if this quilt were for me, it would be the backing too!
The construction issues really show in these little stars in the sashing. My piecing just wasn't precise enough back in the day. But now, with the popularity of wonky stars, I think I'll just say they were meant to be unique! I even like 'em so much I'm going to bind the quilt in teal to highlight them. Who knew what started out as a flaw could be the thing I like the most?
Thanks for reading! Have a great week!
