Chesty and I had a quiet evening and I sat and bound this small HeartStrings top — SaraF recognized it as one she sent me to finish and donate. I’m glad she let me know, I was feeling bad about not remembering!!
Is it crazy that I’m having fun quilting these on my regular sewing machine?! I have no desire to try a larger top but these small ones are fun and even though slooow seems to be in right now, I admit I’m motivated by finishes. Finished tops, finished quilts.
Patting myself on the back for another finish and thanking Stephanie for egging me on!
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.
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.
