This week was very productive for me! I spent a lot of time preparing for quilt retreat, cutting 2.5" strips, cutting out confetti pieces, and pulling out projects I want to take. I started making lists and figuring out what needs to be done before I leave. It just doesn't really look like I did much in pictures.
However, that big game on Sunday caused Paul to do all the cooking and all I had to do was eat. Plus the excitement of watching the game was enjoyed by Mikaela, so I had about 7 hours of sewing time on Sunday.
I quilted this wall hanging with red metallic thread, echoing the seams of the zigzag. I also put the binding and hanging sleeve on, so I have some handwork for work breaks this week.
I pulled out this Patchabilities kit of moms and finished it up, so I have her UFO for the month done. I'm working on the handwork and only have the hanging sleeve left.
I was over the quilting part when I got to this one, so it only got quilting on the tops of the peaks of the zigzags of each color. It actually looks better I think. I got the hanging sleeve and binding on it as well.
Saturday night I was hit with inspiration and threw these leftover HST's up on the design wall. I let them sit in this pattern for a while and by Sunday night I decided I loved them. I started sewing and had them in 5 column's before going to bed for the night. I think it will make a cute baby quilt and use up the fabric mom had left from a baby quilt she made for Mikaela.
Tuesday night I finished up sewing it together and put the borders on it. It turned out pretty cute and I have enough fabric left for backing and binding. I'm so excited to finally have this one into a top and ready to quilt.
