It has been a couple of busy weeks here, I have not spent much time in Quilt Corner.
I have spent time with quilt related activities thought, and it has been a nice time.
This quilt came back from Merete, my machine quilter on Sunday, and I love how it turned out.
The sewing down of the binding is on my to-do list for the weekend.
I am aiming at at least 2 finishes this weekend – this purse still needs some work too.
It’s time to dig out a zipper and get at it.
For the last 3 months I have really made an effort about using more than what I buy, all over the house, and the Quilt Corner is no exception.
It is time to cut some more jelly rolls for care quilts. I do not use much fall colours anymore, since we changed the colours in our house from matching brown to matching grey / blue.
One of my guilds is having a sew-together for care quilts this weekend, and I plan to participate tomorrow.
I think I will make a Jelly Roll Race quilt – they are fast and fun. I am not doing a quilt in an hour though, like the instruction says, but I can do it in a couple of hours when I have cut the stripes first. I plan to cut today and sew tomorrow.
A really big advantage about using from what I have and pairing down a bit, is that I find the real treasures – some of them well hidden, like these purple fabrics.
I am really really looking forward to use these fabrics shortly!
