I’ve had this baby size quilt basted and folded up in a corner for a few months now…yesterday I finally pulled it out, ironed the wrinkles out and finished it off! Woohoo, finishing feels really good…even if it’s not the project I SHOULD be finishing…but hey, that’s another story!
I started this back in December using a Jolly Bar pack from one of the Sew Sampler boxes, it’s nice to have it off my list!
I made some progress on my commissioned projects: both tops from the wedding dress are done & the backing has been cut to size. I also pieced the backing for the tshirt quilt top…now I just need to basted and quilt them all – ugh!
Here are the baby size tops made from the wedding dress; let me just say, working with this material was a bear…I don’t think I’ll ever take another commission like this again!!
Sorry for the horrible lighting in these pictures, I’ll take better ones when I get them basted. Also, these are not squared up or steamed to remove wrinkles – I’ll do that after they’ve been quilted.
Here’s the fabric for the back – it’s a fleece blanket I found at Home Goods several weeks back – I love how it shimmers in the light!
I made absolutely no progress on my March ScrapAttack2018 project, in fact I never even started it!! The month really got away from me 😦 I decided to toss that one back in the box and make a new selection for April’s project, it’s called Squares and Strips and it’s another free tutorial – I swear I didn’t make my choices based on that, I’m just getting lucky!!
There’s been minimal progress on our house in Myrtle Beach – all the cabinets and granite counter tops are in, all the plumbing and light fixtures are in. The next big hurdle will be having the appliances installed and that’s currently scheduled for April 11 – we’ll see if he sticks with that date or has me push it back yet again :-s
We’re supposed to go to a car show in Charleston April 19-22 and I’ll need to go to Myrtle Beach on the way to drop off my fur baby at a friends house. I guess I’ll see with my own eyes how far along we are at that point – and I’ll take more pics then too.
That’s all for now – I hope you’re having a Happy Easter filled with love & laughter ❤
