This week has been slow going. Partly because I’ve got End-of-School-Year exhaustion, and partly because I just want to have my walking foot in hand! Dear Mr. Postman, please come soon!
After finished my Hey, Honey Honey quilt top on Sunday I decided to add to my Scraps for Me collection of stars. This will be star number three and I’m hoping to finish another star tonight to commemorate my first finished baby quilt. I messed up on the last triangle tonight… of course, but overall I’m happy with how it turned out!
I also thought I had broken my sewing machine going over the center seam… but BerNina held on and pushed through… Thatta, girl!
Other than this star block, the only other thing I’ve done is start laying out Chicopee Strips for my next top.
I love these fabrics.
I want to make a very simple, lap-size quilt for me so that I can practice quilting a larger quilt before I work on the ones I’ve made for other people. I decided that if I was going to make myself one it was going to have all of the fabrics that truly inspired me to start quilting. Don’t be surprised when you see the backing and the binding. I’m pretty sure none of it goes together, but it is mine, and I love it.
This is where I am this WiP Wednesday, but have no fear, I have an exciting post coming later this week to celebrate the kick-off of Beth’s (from Plum and June) Let’s Get Acquainted New Blogger Blog Hop. I can’t wait to participate in this blog hop over the summer and meet even more bloggers. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, and again, and again. I adore the quilting community and I’m truly excited to be a part of it!
I’ll even throw in some new and exciting facts for you readers that have been here for the long haul… 🙂
Happy WiP Wednesday, y’all – Hope it’s a great one!
