This week has been busy, but has felt pretty unproductive. I'm not sure why it feels that way...
Princess hasn't made any blocks this week, but has certainly had fun with the new GO! Baby. She has cut out many a shapes and is designing a pillow for herself with them. I'll post a picture of it as soon as she approves the layout! ;)
For me - I also have been playing with the GO! It's great! I used a little charm pack that I picked up a few weeks ago to make some diamonds! I am going to make this:
into a little pillow! I love the fabrics! It's a new Moda line called Hometown (I think) and it is darling!!
I also played with the half square triangle die. A.MA.ZING! Look:
A perfect 3.5" HST. No. Trimming. Required. At. All!!!! **angels start singing** I asked my hubby if he realized how much time it was going to save. His exact answer was, "Well, based on the amount of time you spend quilting, I'll just guess a few thousand hours or so." He's right.
Anyway, In Progress!
Summer Series: Minnesota and Evening Star
I love them both! I love how this quilt is coming out SO much!!!!! When I started I had a thought about who I might give it too. But I am loving it so much that I want to keep it. I have no need for it. I have no real place for it. Everything points to the fact that I shouldn't keep it. Am I going to keep it anyway? You betcha.
SBS: Bowties! This was fun, and I like how the block turned out!
Finally, I started the cutting on this! I have a few more of the applique pieces to cut out, but that shouldn't take too long! Glad to finally have this one started! Yea!
Queen Frolic: Still waiting to be quilted. It mocks me every time I walk into my sewing room. I think I will get quilting tomorrow! I hope. :)
Other stuff: I made some curtains for the kids rooms. I'll post pictures sometime soon!
So that's all! I will be taking my sewing machine in for a service Thursday, so that it can be all tuned up while we are on our last vacation of the summer! We are leaving Friday morning, so I'll be a week or so late on the last Summer series block :( But, we are going to have some major fun! So, I'll be absent all of next week! I'll miss you all!
