Sunday Sewing

 Still a block behind on my make a wild and goosey each week goal, but here is one more.  I am sewing on the Viking Husqvarna machine and it isn't nuts for paper piecing (or I don't know how to set it so it is) so I made it through one block before doing some quilting studio cleaning.
 After serious dusting, wiping, sweeping and lunch I decided I really needed to get to cutting out the purples for my final border on My Blue/Purple Heaven quilt.  I had some already cut and it took forever to get those sewn together so I took Bonnie's advice and cut with the fabric right sides together (in a stack of four fabrics) and they went through the machine so much faster when I didn't have to stop and match up triangles first!
 So here is the stack of some ironed, some not (none trimmed) and hopefully they total the 86 blocks I need for the pieced borders.  I hope to get that done this week or next weekend, then I can whip up the backing and binding and get this one off to Ros for quilting!
I have really enjoyed lots of sewing time this weekend, now I need to get on my elliptical and treadmill and get some steps in--it is 4 PM and I have 243.  Sewing does not burn calories!

So pretty in purple! I just set my stitch length down when paper piecing on my Viking machine. Pretty wild and goosey block. Hope you got those steps in.... I need to get the kids out and rake this morning before it gets too hot. That is moving anyway!
