I have not been idle since my last post. I have been working on quilting and binding this scrap quilt. The top was completed last autumn. Shame on me for not finishing it sooner, but, for me, that's the hardest part, so I put it off. What made this one a bigger challenge is its' size, 91" X 76". Big, unwieldy and difficult to maneuver on my regular size sewing machine. I think once a quilt has its binding on, it takes on a whole new personality One reason I believe every quilt top, even those you may think are the ugliest, should be finished. They just look different.
I have the Christmas Wreath quilt waiting for it's backing, quilting and binding, so I may disappear under a pile of batting again. If I begin to work on it now it may be done for this year's holidays:)
I've also made nine blocks for Quilts of Valor. I cut another today and hope to sew it tonight.
I received the prize from SewCalGal for the Awards' giveaway, and she was very generous to include some extras.
I think I can use the printing fabric to make the label for the scrap quilt I finished today, so that would be neat. How nice to receive something new to try. And I love, love my new small bag. Thank you, Darlene.
That's it. Life is good.
God Bless You.
