I have been doing some sewing the last week or so and thought I would give you a peek at my progress. I am still hand quilting the big quilt on my quilt frame and I hope to have that quilt off the frame maybe before end of summer if I don’t add to many other projects to my plate which is so hard when you see so many things you want to make! The life of a crafter, quilter, baker, gardener, square dancer, mom, wife you gotta love it.
The Crazy Quilt Block # 2 is nearly completed I only have one more corner to complete, but I have not decided on the stitching for that corner as of yet. I have been trying out different stitch patterns and I came across some metal butterflies and more buttons that I could not resist to add to my block.
I made up two more blocks so that I will have plenty of hand work for traveling in the car. I had fun going thru some of my fabric stash and finding fabrics that I had forgotten about and now the project ideas are starting all over again. Hummm…. I might not get that quilt quilted if I keep this up! That is why I have this blog so I can try to stay on track but always have more WIPs in the wings.
The applique blocks of the wolf and the buffalo have been sitting in my sewing basket for a while trying to figure out what to do with them as well as the cross stitch indian chief I had made a few years ago that was going to go on a shirt pocket, but I changed my mind and kept him safe in my sewing basket where he will now be part of the wall hanging for these crazy quilt blocks.
I have also started another project using some of my fabric stash for a block of the month pattern that I found on the internet that I could not resist on Molly’s Place Blog that I will post about on my next sewing blog update, she is a very talented lady and has a great blog with lots of quilting tips and I have added her blog to my blogroll. If you are a quilter…. fair warning being issued that you may add more projects to your WIPs after you go to her site!
