This weekend I accomplished most of my goals and so much more! Friday night I finished quilting the Pink quilt. I got it quilted and put the binding on by 11:30PM. It's the most beautiful quilting I've ever done and the tension was awesome. I even quilted my name into it.
Sat. morning I got up at 6 AM and tacked down the binding so I could use it as a sample for our Market Review party. I finished up just in time to get my supplies ready for the demo and go to work. We had a busy Sat. at the store and I got off about 5pm. I demo'd the bias tape maker. At first I wasn't impressed, but the more I used it, it really is awesome. For those of you that iron your binding in half before putting it on, I can see this is the gadget for you! You can buy the tips for 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" strips to be folded in half and ironed! I hit a couple of fabric stores after work and then picked up chinese for supper. It was so good and really hit the spot.
I quilted a horse wall hanging for a customer after supper. Then I put binding on the Gobble Gobble wall hanging and tablerunner. Then I put labels on the 3 baby quilts I need to get sent off. Looks like they will be Christmas presents at the rate I'm going. Then I used the scraps from the Gobble Gobble panel to make another wall hanging. It turned out awesome and I had just enough for backing and binding from my piece of leftover fabric. I can't believe how much I got out of the small amount of fabric I bought. When I got the fabric on my shop hop in Aug. I had no idea what I was going to do with it and by adding the charm pack, I stretched it into 2 wall hangings and a tablerunner, including using it on the backs and bindings of all three.
Sunday I helped my MIL clean the fish tank really well and we didn't kill any of Paul's fish! I did some other housework and then we went shopping. We got groceries and a few other necessities. I cleaned our car out top to bottom including vaccuming it. It's spick and span now. It was getting cold out so I went inside and made homemade French Onion Soup. It turned out awesome and was so flavorful! I even toasted the bread and put swiss cheese on top. I served it with a salad mix and roasted pepper dressing. While supper was cooking and I was watching Amazing Race I pinned all the rows together for my OBW. That took forever!
Finally in the evening I went to my sewing studio and quilted the wall hanging I had made and put the binding on it.
Paul got home from hunting and he was exhausted! While we visited I did the hand sewing on the binding of the Gobble Gobble tablerunner. I finished it up yesterday during lunch at work. It's pictured above hanging on my office wall. It's about 32" square.
Last night I sewed the rows of the OBW together and pressed them. I now have the 7 units to sew together. It took me over an hour to sew the rows, so it's a slow process, but there is a lot of matching to be done. Today I've been working on the hand sewing on the tablerunner. I have lots of hand work to keep me busy this week!
