Finished

This little HeartStrings group quilt is now done. Blocks by Marianne, assembled at the WI//MN sew-in and quilted and bound by me. Such a fun quilt.

And I love how well the backing goes with the top … Just a lucky find at Joann’s.

I’m leaving for Maine in a few days to attend a HeartStrings sew-in and I’m trying to get a few things done before I go. Quilting and binding this one has now been checked off that list.

Finished!

I had so much fun making and quilting this little Strippie and am quite pleased with it. Simple things make me happy – like relearning how to quilt on my sewing machine and making a sweet little quilt that will be donated and wrap a child in warmth and comfort!

April’s

March’s – which was finished late but now I’m caught up on my goal of finishing one UFO per month.

Finished

This is the last HeartStrings top from the group in CA and it’s finished. I put the last stitches in the binding last night.

I haven’t accomplished much sewing or knitting wise today. Too much time spent on insurance issues but we’re closer to getting some compensation from our insurance company.

I did manage to piece a back for one quilt and pull some yardage for another that doesn’t need backing. I’m falling way behind on piecing backs as I have 8 of my quilts and 3 non standard size HeartStrings waiting for backs.

Last night’s finish

I hand stitched this binding down last night. The top was pieced by a group in CA and sent to me to quilt, bind, and donate.

Another one bound

This one was also brought home from the last HeartStrings sew-in and it’s the 6th one finished. Three more to go!

I needed some uncomplicated knitting and pulled out the herringbone shawl. Unfortunately I promptly made a mistake and had to pull back to the one and only lifeline I had in the piece. Lots of re-knitting to do tonight so I’m settling in for a long evening.

I feel so productive

My railing is full of finished quilts. The one on the far left is my HeartStrings quilt finished before my trip but the others are all donation tops that I quilted and bound.

These blocks were by Nikki and I don’t know if she assembled the top or if Sue or her mom did.

These other three were ones I brought home from the last WI/MN sew in to finish.

There’s more binding on next week’s agenda as I work this month to finish up all the donation quilts I have here before our next sew-in the beginning of April.
