All of my challenges have been done for this month! Woo hoo! I'm so glad to be able to say that. I have come in every day and just couldn't wait to get to my sewing machine. Here's some of my finishes for this month I finished binding this one last Sunday night while watching my grandkids. This is the second D4P and it is for my youngest granddaughter's birthday in April.
I made this pink scrap brick quilt last year (some people call this Streak of Lightning) and finally finished hand quilting this one last week. Nothing special, I just stitched in the ditch on the bricks and just a lattice or chain on the small border. I just wanted to hand stitch this one. I haven't hand quilted in a while and I thought this one would get me back in the groove. I really enjoyed quilting this one and finished binding this one Thursday night late after my small group meeting.
This is easy to make. 3 1/2" squares and 3 1/2" X 6 1/2" rectangles. You repeat the same 4 strips three times and it will make your streak. Easy, peasy, and quick too..Have fun with this one.
I finished this one today. I quilted it Saturday night and late Sunday night and then sewed the binding on. I hand sewed the binding today and now it's done. I took off work today to go to the dentist and I stopped and visited with some of my friends at the church. Today was their quilting day and they were hand quilting on three quilts. The church we meet at has a room for the quilters and there is a sewing machine and three hand quilting frames always set up for them. There are about 12-15 ladies that come on Tuesdays to work on their quilts. I go there on Friday nights and sew with some of them. I sat today and hand quilted with them for awhile. It was fun and relaxing and I got to see some friends I haven't seen in a long time. Alot of these women come on Fridays but not all of them. I used to be in the guild with them and I don't go to that guild anymore. I miss the ladies but just can't go to everything I want to. I wish they met on a different night so I could go. Why is it that all the groups want to meet on the same night?
The D4P and this one was on my challenge list for the month. I made my son and DIL a queen sized quilt out of these fabrics and these were leftovers from that project. I had enough to make this small lap quilt.
I quilted on this one Saturday while Carmen was asleep and finished binding it Sunday night too. I made this small quilt last year when I was doing the Thimbleberries sew days on the last Wednesday of the month. This is a small wallhanging and it was alot of fun to do...
This one is a D9P I finally put the border on. I was doing a QAL for this one and I'm still going to do more D9P quilts. These are fast and easy to do and I want to do some bigger ones to use up my scraps. I started out with this one to see if I liked doing them. Now that I know I like them, I'll do more. I'm going to quilt this one using a pantograph and hope it looks ok. I just got my back arms for my longarm machine and I need to try them out..
And, I finished this tatted cross last Tuesday. This is called the Tennessee Cross and I got the pattern from one of my tatting friends. This was fun and easy to do and I want to do another one.
Well, so far that's what I have to show for the end of the month. Now, I've got some knitting to do for a friend. So, it's TV time for me. I hope you are having a good week and get lots of sewing time in too...
