Remember this pretty stack of fabrics from the other day? Now it is a quilt! I've been busy.
I had a marathon quilting day on Thursday. Well, by marathon, I mean quilting during Finley's two naptimes and in the morning before the kiddos woke up. I didn't mean to do spend Thursday's free time that way. The plan was to clean the house for company that was coming (and is now here) this weekend. But I couldn't help myself. I had basted the quilt the day before, and it was just sitting there waiting for me. AND it was to be be free motion quilted in a meandering pattern, which is my favorite way to quilt. It is so much fun for me.
Now I am watching my favorite movie and handsewing while the little ones are napping. I really enjoy tacking down the binding. I ordered some straw needles last week, I wish they were here already. I've never used them before, but I know many people swear by them and love using then for handsewing.
Aren't these little illustrations from Little Apples so charming? I love them. This quilt is for an upcoming tutorial, so hopefully I'll be able to share the whole thing with you in a month or two. Hope your Saturday is going well! This summer is going way too fast.
