Last week we escaped the Michigan cold and went south to Florida. It was the first solid family vacation in a while and a nice time. We returned home late on Saturday so Sunday was spent doing laundry, preparing to return to work/school and of course crafting.
Hubby helped baste A Boy’s Life and per my son’s request, I did a very simple line quilting. Binding took no time at all and another project is done for 2015.
My plan to make blocks along with Piece N Quilt’s 30 Days of Blocks is going well. Almost too well! I have done 10 blocks so far though I added in a Churn Dash and Ohio Star. Still planning to go back through all the blocks posted to find more to add.
Today I made up two blocks. This one is my new favorite! There have been 3 or 4 blocks so far that I want to do entire quilts in.
In doing this project, I am working hard on maintaining points but still struggling. I would love tips on this.
I have also finally gotten a hang of chain piecing. Not sure why but previously this drove me batty. Now I am just knocking it out!
I don’t know how much bigger this quilt will get. I think I will just keep going till I run out of the fabrics I am using.
I love unexpectedly fun projects but I need to buckle down and quilt the three other projects!
I made it home from snowy Maine with few hitches. A few days of green and brown and now it is snowing in Michigan. A snowy Sunday seemed the perfect time to finish something in my growing pile of tops.
Now to wait for a baby to gift this to.
I also got a few more bike blocks done. This is a fun project especially as I can do it in spurts.
