Two final borders are ready to be sewed on to the top and bottom of the quilt and then this quilt will join the others in the “too be quilting on 3 roller frame box”. I have so much fabric leftover – I can not believe how generous this Craftsy Quilt Kit was. I have always heard bad things about kits and I almost didn’t get it but left over fabric even with two cutting mistakes!!
I needed two pieces that would be 6.5 inches wide and 103 inches long – there was some piecing going on but it was so much easier than I anticipated. Because of one cutting mistake I ended up with 9 – 9.5 inch extra blocks. They were all sewn into a long strip and then a little more added to the end. Then cut off the extra in width which was just right to add to the other strip to finish that one off. All seams pressed open to make hand quilting go easier.
The other one.
You can barely see the seams from this view so I know you won’t really notice them all that much once it is quilted/washed and dried and the crinkly antique magic happens.(all mistakes are almost invisible unless the quilt police search)
Two more baskets added to the little stack on the table, I have three more prepped and ready to work on. When the flannel quilt top is finished I will go back to the birds. Hopefully I will finish the flannel today. Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Crazy Mom Quilts.
You all might be remembering a couple years ago I bought a couple inexpensive Adirondack chairs – well you get what you pay for LOL – one of them broke so we have purchased some better ones, Mike is in the process of putting them together as of course there is always some assembly required – here is one done – my cushions still fit so that was great. I will get a light brown paint to paint the footstools so they will match closer – you can paint these chairs but I do not know if I want to bother with. Sometimes I use the leg rests and sometimes they get stacked to the side. I could sand them off course to get the paint off and stain/varnish but I don’t think I want that much work. Any ideas instead of paint?
For those who have asked if the sewing room was coming along – no it hasn’t moved much lately, in fact not one thing has been done on it the last couple of weeks. If it is not one thing it is another that has taken precedent of Mike’s time. I hope work can get started back up soon.
