Hopscotch will be finished before you know it – the top that is – half way done with it now. Trying to get a photo – the coffee table will need to be moved out of the way next photo.
Handful of Scraps grew by just a little bit when I pinned the newest hexie flower to the wall – there is so much of this quilt that needs to be sewn together – most of it on the left side is pinned to the wall.
I rolled The Final Frontier down and working on this side now.
Aniya came over with Melanie the other night as she said she had to visit Aunt Karen – we had an impromptu quilting lesson as she was wondering how to do it. Please excuse the bad hair day and I was tired besides. For those unfamiliar with Aniya she is my daughter Melanie’s great niece by marriage – almost 5 years old and she is spoiled rotten – a little princess so she thinks. She can wind all of us around her little finger. Linking up to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
I told her she could pick out 10 pieces of scraps to play with and she was dancing and throwing them in the air to make it rain fabric – wouldn’t that be nice if we could get fabric that way.
I caved and ordered from Craftsy from the sale!! I needed backings and wide backs are preferred – just so much easier. I don’t know if you have seen this one by Robert Kaufman, it is simple 3 yards x 108 inches it is ivory color and has a simple fern like print on it on sale for $32.40 (equal to 9 yards of fabric and no piecing!) I got two of them so I have something on hand for a change. They do not have a lot of wide backs but if you do a search on that some will come up. Join Craftsy this weekend as they bring you their best deals of the year, so you can gear up for your greatest gifting yet. Black Friday when you really need it! Sale runs through Sunday night August 21st.
(and yes I did manage to get a couple more things in my basket to get free shipping! couldn’t resist)
