I can't believe it's Wednesday, again.
Ash Wednesday, where is this year going?
But that means there is less than 2 weeks to finish my FTLOS swap projects.
I am happy to report that I put the finishing touches on the larger gift this week
I made my partner a sewing machine cover.
I am going to have a hard time parting with this one.
This is the second sewing machine cover I have made
but my machines are still without a handmade cover.
I decided to make it reversible
so my partner can switch it up when the mood suits her.
Because the other side is improv pieced,
it looks different from each side of the machine.
I am very pleased with the quilting.
Just straight lines, but I used Aurifil 12 wt. cotton on this side
and Aurifil 50 wt. in the bobbin for the improv side.
Now I just need to make a small item
and I will be ready for the March 5 ship date.
I finished my February bee block for the New Bee on the Block bee.
I finally started the Made in Cherry quilt.
I am using Echo.
This might be one of my favorite fabrics, ever.
It took forever to starch and cut all the squares.
I don't usually cut out an entire quilt in one session,
and I guess you could say I really still have not
because I haven't decided on the background fabric.
Any thoughts as to what color I should use?
White, or should I try to match one of the other colors with a solid?
This quilt will be for my friend's April birthday.
I finished Swoon block #7.
Only 2 more to go then this baby will be ready for sashing and quilting.
|poor lighting on this one, sorry|
I almost finished my second Rose Star.
