Thank you all for your kind comments regarding my uncle’s passing. My cousin loves the quilt I made for her. I finished it at about 1145a Saturday and left my house at 1230p. It was my fastest binding job ever. I love machine binding!
I’ve got a few WHOOMPS to share this week.
I finished the quilt top for the custom order that I got through my Etsy shop a few weeks ago, which is for a throw size (60″ x 75″) of the Hillside Houses Quilt. I finally cut into my new roll of batting. It is already basted and I will start quilting it this Sunday. I’m hoping to have it completely finished and ready to ship next Thursday. A pic is coming soon.
I recently listed a few patterns in my Craftsy Pattern Store and am extremely pleased w/the number of sales I’ve had so far.
I finished the Christmas gift paper piecing project! Well…it’s not finished finished but the 20″ square top is finished and I must say, it’s pretty darn amazing! Now I just have to figure out how to quilt it. I’m also thinking about entering it in the Arizona Quilters Guild Quilt Show in March.
And lastly, I made a mug rug this week using this Tea Cup Pattern. I liked it much better as a flimsy.
I learned a couple of valuable lessons in quilting it.
1. I should use a walking foot for straight line quilting, no matter how small the project.
2. Binding projects this small is for the birds and I will not do it again.
Now I’d like to see what you did this week. Link up and share below. =)
