Well as I was reading blog posts today it seems everyone is leaving for Quilt Con today! How fun is that. I love going places and places that involve sewing are even better. A group of ladies from the MMQG are going and one had to drop out and stay home. How I wish I had an endless supply of money for my hobby. Ok, I know this is all of our wish. Oh well, I have some fun things coming up that I can look forward to.
Finished Projects-Summerville Quilt
If you haven't seen the post, it is here. Love it!
I made some progress on my hexie MF that I started last year! I have all 77 centers done and lots of petals but I finished 7 full flowers! I am loving them. Now I just need to keep on them.
I have made progress quilting on my Moda Civil War Quilt. I have the border to do which I just got the thread for and then the circle feathers. That is really my hang up. I tried those once and was not happy with how they looked so I have been reading up and need a practice, then it has to get done. I have set a deadline for March 5-complete. I want to take it for show and tell and the quilt retreat I am attending. So I can't let it sit.
I also put the last of the rows together on Easy Street. I finished it last night at like 9 - still not loving it or seeing the design that everyone but mine has. So it was really hard to get a photo and it was dark but I am seeing it today and really hope I can see it when I step away from it. This quilt was on my FAL for Q! but I am pretty sure if I get the borders on it, it is not going to get completely done. My husband doesn't understand if I don't like it why would I spend any more money or time on it. Well, lots of times it comes together in that final stage. So I think Easy Street and I need some time apart and we will revisit later!
Up coming projects
I am also going to do the retreat quilt. My plan is red, white and blue and make a donation quilt for QOV. I want to donate several this year but have not even started one yet. So all the fabric from my stash, a weekend to work on it and I should be set.
Wow, that really was a productive week. I have lots to get prepped for my sewing retreat and there is a small quilt show in town here so that is what I will be working on.
Happy Sewing. Linking up WIP.
