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.
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.
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.
This Pineapple Blossom was pieced by Carol I think.
I probably shouldn’t have favorites but I do … I love working with our HeartStrings quilts and this one of Jackie’s is my favorite of the batch. It makes me anxious to finish my Black/White/Pink top when I get home.
I’m lucky that I don’t really have any chores this month other than caring for Chesty but I do need some clean clothes and Keith isn’t here to do the laundry so I’m at the laundromat. My reward will be a lobster roll for lunch!
