So, I'm attempting to rewrite this post. Sigh. Skeet is not happy with me as we should have been back from our morning trot long ago and we haven't even left yet. Hang on Skeeterbug!
I think I'm finally caught up on baby quilts for a bit...at least for a week or two. I've got 2 big quilts to bind but it'll be a while before those are done. I'm a slow binder. I only work on bindings and hand stitching in the evenings and there's not much time to bind during these long summer days. I've still got a few quilts in various stages and I think it's a good time to take stock and make a list.
Now, this didn't all happen in a day or two...or even a week. This has taken place a stitch at a time, here and there, over the course of probably the past 3 weeks.
1. A while back, I bought this line of On Deck from Craftsy
to make this quilt and I finally opened, pressed, and cut it out
2. Then in my attempt to use up leftovers from an old Lilly and Will line, I cut and pieced a top using the Baby Sails pattern, substituting bunnies for the sail boats
The pink and white piece is large enough for a backing. but I still had leftovers
So I made 100 QST and am piecing those into a top. And I think there's enough left for one last quilt from the leftovers of the leftovers. :)
3.I made a southwestern wall hanging quite a few years ago. It's just been sitting as a top because I couldn't decide if it needed a border or not, but I finally just cut a backing and will hand it off to Jackie
4. I bought this piece when I needed $3.00 in order to reach free shipping status on an order and was determined to get it into a baby quilt
So I pulled coordinates, made a slew of HST's
And pieced it into this design:
And that led to yet, another leftover quilt:
5. When we're on the our way to anywhere and I'm not driving, , I grab my little box of EPP and make a little progress
6. I worked on the May and June clues for the Two- Step Mystery Quilt over at My Carolina Home. The last clue is coming out today and I'm excited to get this one finished and gift it to Grandma Lillian:
7. I am making bias binding for this one. This is the one I'm most excited about:
8. And I'm currently binding this one:
9. This one was put on the back burner in June because June got crazy with cow works and the kids coming home on 2 weekends. I would much rather have the kids home than sew and I love that they enjoy spending time with the old folks.
I was very careful and pieced slowly on this one, but it still didn't fit together the way it should and I became frustrated, but now it's time to stop procrastinating and get back to work on it.
O.K. Skeet... we can go now
