I have been getting a couple of my quilt tops together so that I can send them off to be quilted!! I am really excited as they are two of my favorites and they have just been sitting. I came across them while doing some organizing in my sewing room recently, it’s time!
The granny square top still needs outside borders, first white and then I am thinking about a scrappy strip border of some type. I will take a picture when I get it finished. Also, still choosing backing fabric, I am pretty sure they will be pieced from my stash, so I won’t have to buy any more fabric, did I really say that??
Next is my Spin Cycle top, quilt pattern by Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew, that I commissioned my friend Trish to make for me quite a while ago. I am so glad that I did because I love it, she did a great job!!
This is what I think the main backing fabric will be. A little piecing will be needed but not too much.
I have not been getting much sewing accomplished here as we have been remodeling a bathroom. Eeeek, that is not fun at all. Except to choose out the new tile and fixtures. But the work and time it takes I could surely pass on. Thankfully, my husband has been doing most of the work, alone!
But while in the middle of that project I have made a couple of sample blocks for a quilt I am planning on making soon. Not the pink for sure, (it’s going to be for my son), but just having a little fun first. I love the pink and blue and the pink and grey together.
Onto the book by Lindsay Wilkes, it was a Christmas present from my husband. I am really looking forward to opening it up and sewing up some little girl clothes. I have three adorable little girls to sew for now. A 3-year-old, 2-year-old and of course baby Lydia. How much fun is that??
The sun is shining here today but it is still cold. It looks like a great day to sew, we shall see! Hope you are enjoying your day and maybe getting in a little sewing too!!
