Early last week while I was getting my class lists together, finalizing the information for the newsletter and pulling samples, I realized that I had sold the lap size log cabin quilt that I made. ARRGGHHHH!!
How could I forget that? I had already sent the schedule and the supply list to the shop so I decided I would just have to make another one. It wouldn't take long, and I have a couple of weeks before my samples have to be in the shop anyway.
So, because I was able to get all of the prep work done for Saturday's sewing event by Friday afternoon, I pulled fabric from my stash and got my book out of the bookcase and figured I'd get working on the quilt this coming week. I had a little free time Friday evening so I cut the fabric and made a couple of blocks. I wanted to audition the fabric placements and make changes as needed. I liked the two of blocks I made but when I put the top together last night, I decided that I don't love it.
I still have to add the borders, which I will do later today so hopefully that will help. And I'll wait and see what the quilting does to it. Again, it isn't terrible, but I think I'll probably make another one for the class. It's small, only 12 blocks and it doesn't take long. Like I said, two of these blocks were done Friday night and the other ten were pieced yesterday afternoon and evening.
I did finish the triangle quilt I was making last week and I do like that! I don't have a picture so I'll have to add it later. I also finished a couple of projects I'll be showing during the two blog hops in which I'll be participating during the month of September. Be sure to stop back to see those. :-)
Hopefully later today I'll be able to post pictures from Saturday's Old Bags' Day Sew-In. There was a lot of sewing accomplished and some wonderful fellowship. I love those days!
