This week has gone by so slow! I was actually starting to stress about not getting any sewing/quilting time. I didn't teach this week and only had a teachers meeting to attend. When my routine is off it seems like the whole week is off. This is also the 3 year anniversary of my mom's passing, which is always a difficult time for me. I feel more connected to her when I am sewing, so when I'm not able to, it's like I can't be with her.
I was able to pick up the binding for this friendship quilt and get it bound Wednesday night. I went with the all machine sewn binding since I just wasn't feeling it. It will make a nice wall hanging.
I cut out these diamonds for a new sample while I was waiting for Mikaela to fall asleep. She thinks she will miss me sewing, so she has a hard time sleeping. I saved the scraps for her to play with.
I pulled out this Scrappy Swoon to work on and did the ripping. I got one segment sewn back together and back into the quilt last night, so I should be able to finish it up soon. I also have the backing I need to prep and it will be ready for quilting when I get a chance.
I took the stack of leader/ender pieces and cut them up, so now they can go back together as 4 patches. This is for a Briar rose quilt.
This is the binding I used for the friendship quilt. I ended up cutting it at 2 3/8" which was where it broke apart. I had to really watch which direction I put them together and have enough for another small quilt with the diagonal going the other direction.
Mathew and Mikaela are starting to play together more and really enjoy Mathew's 4-wheeler from Grandpa Hugh and Grandma Ann. It's so fun to watch them play together and use their imaginations.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday
