Over the past month I’ve been working on finishing some WIPs & UFOs that have been laying around and I have more to show this week…squeee!
This first one is a WIP I just started last week but at least I got it finished so it wouldn’t become a UFO! This is called Sarah after the pattern in the Fat Quarter Baby book. I highly recommend this book, all the patterns are adorable and so quick and easy to make.
A few weeks back you saw a glimpse of this next quilt (which I’ve titled “More or Less” after the name of the block) when I got it basted and now it’s done! I decided to use a quilting motif I call ‘Daisy’…it really makes a statement but it’s kind of a pain to quilt because it leaves so many thread tails to bury. Thankfully this quilt is only 47×59 so it wasn’t too horrible. This first picture is before binding – it shows the quilting in all it’s glory!
For the binding, I went with a medium brown fabric from my stash to try to keep it gender neutral although that backing fabric speaks for itself, lol!
I’m super happy with how this turned out and will be posting it for sale on my FB page.
Speaking of posting things for sale, I posted the Sarah quilt for sale last week for $45 and got an email from a quilting friend I met online saying the price for my quilt was way too low and didn’t reflect my time in the price. She’s right…I know that…my husband has told me that many times. I have a hard time putting appropriate price tags on my work because I don’t place enough value on my time. She shared this blog post with me as a way to encourage me to be better.
I read the blog post and I also reviewed some additional information she shared and after all that I’m going to post this recent finish for $155…just typing that makes my stomach flip!! I have no illusions that it will actually sell for that price but I have to start somewhere, right? 😉
I shared a few weeks back that I made some elephant plushies for my great niece and here she is with them… she is just the cutest baby ever!!!
In other news, I didn’t walk as much this past week – only 2 days…ugh. Can someone please kick my ass?!!! ‘Nuff said.
Have a great rest of the weekend…ttfn!
