Not a full day of sewing but a good day in all on Monday.
I made binding for one of the quilts in our Senior Quilt project and have it about 50% sewn on. Today was a workshop day, and I made the binding before leaving for the workshop. I had about an hour & 1/2 before anyone else would arrive, so I managed to get it stitched to the back of the quilt.
Our Senior Quilt project is progressing. We have 14 quilt tops made, and tied # 13 on Tuesday. The last quilt will be tied by the children at Kids Inc, (the before & afterschool childcare program at church). That quilt is for one of staff, who is also graduating.
I left two tied quilts at church for “willing volunteers” to take home and bind. Since I am working on binding my second one, I decided to leave those two for someone else. Besides, I should finish the one I am binding, before I take another one home, right?
I am feeling better about the project at church, especially since I decided to make this my last year coordinating the project. And, since there were two people willing to take it on for next year, I can now stop feeling guilty about my decision. (This has been a really tough year with so many quilts.) Now I can just participate and sew and not worry about all the details!
I have lots of projects going on, and am leaving on Saturday morning for a vacation, so I want to try and
finish work on some unfinished projects!
I need to finish my friend Pete’s quilt that I did the repair on. His binding is made, I just need to trim down the edges of the batting and backing and get it DONE. My husband usually sees him on Wednesday evenings, and maybe I can have him deliver today.
My memorial quilt still stands at 5 completed 12″ squares; 7 to go and a decision on sashing needs to be made….something solid, to give your eye a place to rest!. I have about 8 half -square triangles to “remake” as well. When I “squared” them up I really goofed them up, so I am going to remake them. I love making HST, and must have been tired when I goofed those up!
Time to go sew! Hope you have a great day stitching on this beautiful spring day.
