I machine sewed the binding onto the Farmer’s Wife this afternoon and I will work on the hand stitching tomorrow at our quilt group that meets once a month (there are several quilt groups that I sometimes join in once a month).
Instead of making the binding 3/8th of an inch wide I decided to make it a 1/2 inch instead. That does make it look more like an additional border in a way. I just have 3 binding clips folding it over right now to show —
This morning at the weekly quilt group I brought my box of triangles to hand piece (remember I quit doing it the English Paper Piecing method) – it is moving along slowly – I don’t know at this point how big this quilt will be. I have not been able to maintain my interest in it for some reason. I some how think this hand piecing project might end up being a machine piecing project instead or maybe I just need to work on it more than once a week to get motivated!!
Only problem with that is all these already started projects to continue making. One day I need to get the Red and Green Applique out and get busy on that final border as well. One day, one day, one day – too many things going on!!
I get side tracked too easily. I have not worked on Joseph’s Coat in a week at least because I was busy finishing up Farmer’s Wife – which will be finished this weekend!! Hallelujah a finish in another day!!
So currently in progress:
Pineapple Square Wall Hanging – applique left to do
Joseph’s Coat – a lot of piecing left to do
Star Crazy – a lot of quilting left to do!
Triangles – hand piecing – or will it go to machine piecing?
2 small quilts waiting in line to be quilted
2 large quilts waiting in line to be quilted
Red and Green Applique – border to be appliqued
Ideas for about 20 more in my head!!
Will I find the time? Who knows – I will try to finish at least one more before I start a new quilt top!! What is waiting in line for you to work on?
