Can’t throw it away

I’d make a lot more progress if I’d throw some things away! I pieced a back and then started cleaning up some surfaces today but when I came across some of the discarded chisel pieces I decided to use them in a small doll quilt. Hopefully, I’ll get a top loaded on the longarm tomorrow.

Border on

I do have a little self discipline left! In spite of wanting to start something new, I buckled down and cut and pieced the bricks for the Flock of Geese top. I’m traveling Thursday and I probably won’t even get a chance to sew tomorrow as I do laundry, pack, and everything else I need to do to get ready so it made more sense to finish something rather than start a new project.

That border looks wavy but that’s just because Finn was anxiously waiting for his supper and I didn’t take enough time to smooth the top out on the design wall before snapping the photo.

Quilts for Bronco’s

I sewed today! Seems like it’s been weeks but I guess I did make a little progress last week. Today I finished assembling the top I’m sending off to Canada. You can see the details for the project at this link. They were asking for blocks, tops, or finished quilts made with a specific block/color choices and while I usually like to finish my own quilts – I decided to make a top to send because of the May 18 deadline.

Do you send handwritten notes anymore? I have a few occasions I do and like to keep notecards on hand. These are one of my favorites since most times I’m writing to send my love or support. They’re even in the appropriate team color in this case – Aren’t they cute? The top along with fabric for binding is all packed up and ready to mail.
