Back to work!

Travel and family time are fun but I’m ready to finally be back in my sewing room! I’ve got several December goals to work on the rest of the week with the aim of finishing up as much as I can before the New Year arrives and my reward will be to start a new quilt on New Year’s Day. 

First up today was to trim and get the 9 patch quilt bound – it’s ready for me to hand stitch the binding down tonight. Next, to finish assembling the brown/green Carpenter Star that I cut and kitted at Big Canoe this past July. Click the link to see a brown and pink version made a few years ago and for brief instructions for making one yourself. I did change the pieced borders on this one – I cut them using the Accuquilt GO 1/2 rectangle die. 


I’ll be home all of January but we’ll have company twice – it’s SO nice to have a queen bed for guests again and Chris and Becky brought my red quilt from Big Canoe when they came. 


There’s still room for my table when there’s no company and tomorrow’s tasks are pin basting and quilting a Quick Strippie.

    Sometimes just normal is great. For you crossing goals off your list seems to be satisfying. i personally am past the point of appreciating goals and/or deadlines.

    Your quilts are beautiful! Love the holidays and am also ready to return to work/play: quilting, hooking, stitching
