Three day weekends are wonderful and productive! Yard work was on my agenda for Memorial Day--Mother Nature had rain on her agenda, I adjusted my plans and finally finished the piecing of the HST (Half square triangle) patriotic red, white and blue quilt. With this finish, my mojo was charged and this weekend, I added the borders to the quilt. Let's not talk about the length of time I have had the border fabric in my stash. With this accomplishment and to get the flimsy ready for the long arm quilter, I sewed the backing fabric together. This week she's off to the long arm quilter.
Feeling good about my progress and having time on a Saturday afternoon--I put the petal to the metal on the old sewing machine and the tumbler pieces of this wall hanging also became a flimsy. This was my first time using the tumbler tool and it is a hit! (Let's not talk about the length of time these pieces have sitting on my quilt board.
While I was dashing through my fabric stash looking for backing fabric for the flag wall hanging, I found another PhD (project half done). This is the French Braid quilt using the binding tool. July Fourth is on Friday this year--another three day weekend and a great time to get this flimsy stitched.
Dying to Stitch will soon be shipping kit #3 of The Colonial Gathering Club. (Drop by Paulette's blog at Plum Street Samplers for a glimpse). I had hoped to have Harry Tyler's Lion stitched before it arrived but. . .
Mojo I love you! Please hang around for a long, long time!
