Busy, busy

I had a bit of unexpected travel last week which means I didn’t get as much sewing & quilting done as I had planned. A dear friend from Maryland lost her husband rather suddenly so I traveled to spend a few days with her during the services. I left on Thursday and got home yesterday [just in time for the Superbowl…too bad my team didn’t win but it was still a pretty good game to watch].

I did do a few things last week before my trip: I finished the top for the baby-size Scrap Attack 2018 January project. I pulled this from a tin where I have placed tiny sized Pinterest pictures of projects I plan to use my scraps to complete. This one was the “Mother’s Own” block – free from Fat Quarter Shop. A simple white border and now it’s ready to be basted & quilted – it measures 34×44.

Before I left I pulled my Scrap Attack 2018 project for February; this one is a picture of the finished quilt called Stoplight by Keepsake Quilting.

Before I left on my trip, I also laid out all the tshirts for the commission quilt and landed on this layout. I sent the pic to the customer and she was pleased, now I need to finish putting stabilizer on the shirts and start squaring up and sewing. I’ll need to add some sashing/filler for some of the pieces but overall it looks like it should fit together pretty well.

please excuse the doggie steps – I laid this out on my bedroom floor

That’s about all for now. I took off work today so I plan to get in my sewing room and make progress…ttfn!
