Well, it's time again for a little bloggy love - I hope you've got lots of great things to share today!
Last week I was e-mailing with my friend KarrieLyne of Freckled Whimsy,
and I mentioned that I still hadn't had a chance to play with my Christmas present,
a "faux" long arm quilting frame. Her response - and I quote - was,
|It's so nice to have my little photography assistant again!|
|The back of "Tropical Breezes"|
It didn't feel like I was saving much time, but I vowed to
give it another chance. I loaded another ministry quilt on it yesterday
during Lilli's nap, and then quilted it today while Lilli was in preschool.
It only took 1 1/2 hours to quilt!
The binding is sewn on the front, but I still need to hand-stitch it to the back.
I'm calling this quilt "The Shirt Off My Back" because the blocks are
made with 2" x 4" samples of fabrics for men's shirts from back in the 1960's.
(I'll be showing finished pictures of this quilt later on in the week.)
And then tonight, after working on all the quilt ministry quilts,
I decided to spend an hour or so working on one of my UFO's.
This is the Christmas Around The World quilt I started last January.
I'm naming it Noel.
And it's done! (Well, ok, just the flimsy, but wow! I cut this out over a year ago!)
So all in all, even though I felt like I was spinning my wheels while working on the quilt frame, I seem to have gotten a reasonable amount of stuff done this week!
