it has been a busy couple of weeks for me but not too busy for some sewing. i finished up the year end commitments at work that i needed to which meant some long days and chaos in my mind at times. it was worth it because i met my family at the famous little mouse's house in California for a little vacation.
have sewing will travel. i did some sewing on my Tula Pink Salt Water Hex on the Beach quilt while i waited in the airport for the other's to arrive. i think i was putting together row 18. i am almost halfway there. whoot whoot.
over the past couple weeks i have also made progress on the 10 quilt tops that i have that need to be quilted. this is the 1st one and i had fun quilting it. i did an overall loopy pattern.
i made it to the 2nd quilt. i did some echo quilting inside of each star with matching thread. i also used the same thread for the center square of each log cabin and the pink border. i did a larger overall stipple on the rest of the quilt with a light grey thread.
i have the scraps ready for both quilts to cut up and make the binding for each quilt. since i sew my binding on with a different machine i will wait until i have a couple more quilts quilted and then bind them all at once.
this is the 3rd quilt that i will be quilting. it is a mini but it is counted in my 10 tops that need quilted. i will be using 5 different colors of thread on this one because its Tula and its NEPTUNE. need i say more?
i have started on it......
i hope to finish the quilting on it this week. i think that is a reasonable goal given the size of it. LOL
this was the last day at Disneyland. we were all tired but we all had a great time.
i got row 18 together on the trip and so i have started sewing it to row 17.
