Another week with a Missing post!
Hopefully this won’t become a trend.
I was busy over the weekend, even managing to squeeze in some non-studio/stitching activities even – more on that later.
Never fear, I did spend a good bit of time in the studio – most of it was stitch, stop, turn, stitch, stop, turn, lather, rinse, repeat.
In other words, the machine quilting on the DDD challenge quilt continued. It has really come a long way, though it’s hard to get good photos of the quilting at this point. I am happy with my progress but since it needs to be dropped off by , I need to hurry up even more. Two sides of the binding have been attached but not turned. I kind of jumped ahead on this step since the borders have all been quilted even though two rows interiors still need quilting added. This project is being handled a bit differently but it’s okay, sometimes you need to think & quilt outside the box. Rest assured no quilt was harmed in the jumping around of the quilting, though I am certain a few quilting rules were broken.
At the same time, the Wicked challenge quilt is nearing the finish line as well. It was layered and quilted / and I was stitching down the turned to the back self-binding yesterday on my breaks & lunch.
The finishing touches were added last night & it should be on its way to Minnesota later this morning. I’m hoping I don’t suddenly decide it needs ‘just a little more’ as I go pack it into the shipping box. Cross your fingers! Here are some in progress pictures from the weekend.
I’ll post the finished picture once I am sure it is actually a FINISH!
I’ve never had two projects, both not done, this close to the same deadline – YIKES! That’s where the DH is really going to pitch in & help this week – taking over chores & cooking so I can have every spare minute to work on them. Hope your projects are all on track and ahead of schedule!
