Today Kathy and I met up with my mom and dad for the Tempe Arts and Crafts Fair. We shopped and walked and got a great philly cheese steak sandwich at Corleones. We were exhausted by the time we left but very excited to get home and sew. We put in Walk the Line and then The Green Mile and got busy. I put the bindings on ALL SIX of the quilts I got back from Joanne. YAY...several of them are Christmas gifts so I am really glad to cross them off my to do list. I won't mention that none of them has a label yet, UGH. So that is still on the list. Tomorrow I will take pictures of them outside so you can see them all, but here they are getting bound.
The first one is Hannah's Christmas Quilt (Anita's Arrowhead) and I forgot to machine bind to the BACK so I could machine bind it on the front, but I made it work anyways!
Tomorrow, in addition to quilt photos in the sunshine, I plan to pull out all the "can be gifted" quilts and see what should go where and make the final decisions on these that I am on the fence on! So very happy Joanne was able to quilt these up and get them back to me so I can get them out the door.
In other sewing news...Kathy cut both our clue two rectangles that Bonnie told us about for a future clue and then she (and later I) cut some strips and squares for more Moth in the Window blocks. I have been cutting them as I go and now we kitted some up to speed that project along! I did sew up one spool block and cut up several more from leftover bits from making the bindings. I have a great habit of making the binding when I do the backing but somehow with these six I had only made binding ahead of time for TWO of them! I do have a leftover binding drawer and I used a few from there and had to make a few too.
Bonnie will be on QuiltCam tomorrow so I will be sewing up Moth in a Window blocks while listening to her! Hope you have had some time to sew too!
