I need one more day!
I had a very productive sewing weekend but I'm not ready to stop! I need one more day to work on these projects.
On Saturday I finished piecing the large lap quilt I'm making for a couple in my neighborhood; they've had a rough year with illnesses and missed most of our 'hood gatherings. I don't want them to think we don't miss them! This quilt includes the black&gold mariner's compass I just made. Here it is sandwiched but no quilting done yet.
I also sandwiched the table runner that's for my co-worker's wedding gift. I used Insul-Bright for the batting so they can use it as a large hot pad on the table. Her shower is in 2 weeks so I need to get it done! I started working on the fm quilting and I'm pretty pleased so far.
I picked up the wedding engagement quilt (for my goddaughter) from the longarmer so I cut, pressed and attached the binding. I attached the binding to the front by machine but I like to hand stitch it on the back, so that's on the list for the rest of this week. I pieced the top of this quilt at Retreat last year and was hoping to bring it back finished this year but I'll be mailing it off to the newly engaged couple as soon as it's done.
As you can see, I had lots of help when I was sewing the binding on!
