Getting things done

As mentioned last week, I finished the top made of my great niece’s receiving blankets and had to order fabric for the backing…it arrived on Thursday. When I saw this fabric online I wasn’t sure if the lines were part of the weave or part of the print and I was a bit worried…

Thankfully it’s part of the print and it gives the fabric a bit of a vintage look. Since this is 108″ wide I only need to make one cut and it will be ready for basting.

Next up, I continued to work on my Sept Scrap Attack project and made excellent progress…the top is done!!!

I took it outside to get a shot in sunlight

And I gave the IG swirl a try

And one more shot up on my design wall.

I’m so tickled with how this turned out with all those happy, bright colors. It measures 63×72. This will now need to go into the ‘waiting’ pile as I prioritize finishing the receiving blanket quilt and working on the memory quilt commission project.

Speaking of that, I pulled all those shirts out last week and deconstructed them…now I need to get down on my bedroom floor and work on a layout – my knees and back are already dreading it!

An update on the house in Myrtle Beach: we’re supposed to go there next week to close on the house and I’d be so happy about that if it weren’t for a little storm called Florence! I just can’t believe our luck!!! 😦  So we’ll wait and watch to see what happens and hope the storm takes a hard right out to sea!!

That’s all for now…enjoy the rest of your weekend 🙂

    1. Thanks Karla! So sorry to hear about your troubles with Irma…these hurricanes just seem to be getting worse every year 😦 The current forecast has it landing in NC so we may have dodged the bullet…those poor folks in NC, they’re still recovering from the last one!
