An item is off the todo list!

After a long time, I’ve finally gotten something off of my todo list!  I’ve taken some time off of work and in the first week, I was able to get 2 quilts done, 1 from the todo list and 1 that I’ve been wanting to do!  I finally bit the bullet and worked on the stained glass hearts.  That bias tape is a pain to work with!  But I’m glad it’s finally finished, it will hang in our bedroom.

Stained Glass Hearts

I was also able to start and finish (in 2 days) my Xmas cross stitch wall hanging.  I even mitered the corners of the borders – which I’ve NEVER done before.  I thought it would look better because of the attic window blocks.  To my surprise I only had to unstitch 1 corner and redo because I didn’t have the angle right.  I think it looks pretty good though!

Xmas Stitches

I also managed to get a shelf stained and hung up.  I have bins for my 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ strips and 2″ squares.  It’s over my cutting station so it will be easy to throw the strips in it when I’m cutting fabric.

New Shelf!

Not much  more to update this week, we’ll see what I get accomplished in the coming week!

Summer Quilts

Well, I’ve gotten Summer Quilts back from the framer, and it looks just as good as the Spring Quilts does!  I’m already about halfway done with the Autumn Quilts….it’s a lot of work, but I’m getting through them pretty quickly!

Summer Quilts

Went shopping with mom today – only 2 quilt shops and I spent a lot of money!  Bought the fusible interfacing to make Lone Star Quilts, a pattern for some cute table topper/placemats, border on a roll for quilting that I’ve been wanting to try and a bunch of fabric!  Most of it is half yards of Moda Marbles, and the leaves might just be something for mom 🙂

I received the Peppermint Cottage fabric from Fat Quarter Shop, it looks awesome!  Can’t wait to start working on that wallhanging.  Hopefully I’ll actually have something quilt related that I can post in the next few days, I have so many in my head and I think I might just have some time in the next few weeks to make them!
