This week my goal was to complete a few projects. I have been dying to start some new projects (do I have ADD when it comes to quilting?) but swore to myself, no new projects til a few blocks of have completed!
I cleaned up my sewing room a bit - have a little bit more to go there, but am feeling better about the room in general.
I quilted and got the binding on my Going Coastal quilt! I quilted straight lines 1/4 inch from all the seams. SO MUCH HARDER then I thought! Although I love the look, I've decided straight line quilting on a longarm is hard! Good thing is I got some practice, and I have just some binding to complete and a quilt is done!
I also quilted and got binding on my Full House project. Again crosshatch quilting, which is just straight lines (what was I thinking) but a little smaller and easier. Love how this turned out. I have been saving this plaid blue woven fabric for binding for a few years! I decided to cute the whole yard up and make binding. You'll be seeing this binding on a few more quilts!
My goal is to get both quilts completed this weekend.
I also added some blocks to my Lincoln project. This simple pattern from this book -
using this pattern-
= these blocks
I'm loving how its turning out and am anxious to get it done. I've got all the rail blocks done and I'm working on the stars. Got 6 blocks down - 7 more to go. I've got some quilting for customers to get done this weekend, so the blocks may have to wait. My goal is to get 3 more stars done this weekend.
Hopefully that will leave me enough time to iron a bundle of lovelies for a new quilt a long I'd like to join and get at least 1 swoon block added to the bunch. We'll see how productive I can be.
Tonight we are dropping the kids off for a few hours (so nervous how Sammy will do) but they get dinner and play with a bunch of other kids. We'll see how it goes. We are going to hit a movie, is it wrong that I really would love to come home and sew for 3 1/2 hours alone? But Mike and I need a night out so hopefully we'll see a movie of my choice this time! Sunday is the big game - maybe I can get my bindings done durnig it....I have a feeling there will be some late nights this weekend to get all this completed!
Linking up again this week to Whoop Whoop and Finish it up Friday - Love seeing what everyone else is working on too!
