I have progress to show you! Hurray!
I finished piecing Miss A's quilt top on Sunday (1/10) and got it basted the next day!
So bright and cheerful!
I worked on it for 2 days, and got the quilting finished on Tuesday night!
My stitches need work, but for me, done is better than perfect!
Thankfully, Miss A LOVES it! She couldn't even wait to get it bound before she started using it!
She's watching the downstairs TV here.
This weekend I plan on cutting the binding and getting it stitched to the back. I'm going out of town next weekend, so I want to do the hand part of the binding while I'm gone.
When I've completed it, I'll post the whole thing (hopefully with better pictures) with a pattern review. (Again, it's Round & Round by Thimble Blossom).
I'm pretty proud of myself! I know it's not the best piecing or quilting, but I'm usually so slow that I wasn't expecting to even start quilting before February! It's amazing what ACTUALLY sewing (instead of thinking about sewing) will do for your productivity! I will actually have this done before her birthday! (Even my husband is impressed at that!)
Since I pulled off the miracle of getting this done, I was able to work on my Thimble Blossoms Swap!
My partner likes brights, so I went with a couple of prints from Tula Pink's Elizabeth line. TP is usually pretty good about bright and happy colors!
My goal is to get it basted and quilted this weekend, and hopefully half bound next week. It's just one block, so it shouldn't take that long, right? Again, I want to do the hand binding next weekend while I'm at my mom's.
It's kind of nice to actually be able to show you progress! That so rarely happens! It makes me want to sew more when I have something to show for my time! Maybe I'll actually get through all my UFO's this year! (Or is that just a pipe dream?)
Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
