I did finish hand quilting the baby hearts quilt and added the binding last night. I still need to hand stitch it down... cause after I got to my recliner it seems Peanut had overtaken it! I picked him up to move him and he landed on my lap, belly and chest... he was laying down and comfy! and Sophie jumped up onto the foot part. I was unable to do any hand work with those helpers.
So I pulled out the next 2 quilts I was thinking about hand quilting. The baskets and the cat and mice.
I asked the kids.... they said the baskets... which is nice and small and should go quickly.
I was going to stop at Joanns on the way home from bowling to pick up some hand quilting batting...but since that basket one is small I 'think' I can piece the leftovers from the baby quilt to be big enough.
One more week of the kids being home........ not that I am counting down the days until January 3 when they go back to school! =).
Grant me patience today... Emily will try and quilt her quilt this afternoon.
I gave myself a little gift this morning. I had purchased a year subscription of Craftsy earlier this year for me and the kids. The deal gave me a $25 coupon each quarter. Well, that got spent this morning buying some fat quarters of a pretty red and cream line that was marked down, a charm pack of that and a charm pack of purples. Yes, it was a little over but that $8 was worth it! I also purchased one of my 'free' classes today - a hand quilting one that looked good on the reviews. I can't wait to watch it. I also saved off a slew of free patterns (ok - 11) in case they go away tomorrow. Some dress patterns, little coin cases, skirts, pj's, microwave bowl holders....
I think today will be showing the kids that lava cake video and have them make it for dessert tonight!
you have a lot that you are working on and I hear everyone talking about it is almost time for the kids to go back to school - some sound like patience is wearing thin! Enjoy the subscription and what you bought
Lovely quilt to hand quilt. I agree the Cat and Mouse seems to need a border. Maybe you could find a ball of yarn fabric for the border.
The kids made a nice choice for your next hand quilting project. LOVE the ideas that Aidan had about the Cat and Mouse quilt!!! He's a great design assistant. You are SEW lucky!!
I love the hearts and the baskets! They should be fun to quilt!
Love how the kids are adding their creative ideas to grow the cat and mouse quilt!
Why is the large trip quilt being neglected?!?!?
Lots of lovely projects to keep you busy.
