Happy Wednesday! Its been quite a week, completely aside from sewing, Mother Nature is playing cruel tricks on us in these parts, we went from 80 degree weather on Friday, to snow on Monday (real snow...like the local kids didn't have school snow) to mid 60 degree weather today. Whaaaat?? Anyways, I've been sewing away, my aunt and I had a little sewing date last week to show her how to FMQ her quilt, and aside from that I've been scalloping away! Here's whats new:
DP Scallop Quilt
I sewed my little hearts out to get this top put together this weekend, and I couldn't be happier with how this turned out. I'll be putting together a little tutorial when I finish up this quilt, be on the lookout if your interested. More about Mr. Scallop here.
The other day I took advantage of my clean floors, had a little basting party, and then got to quilting. I decided to branch out of my normal quilting pattern and try something new. Ever since seeing Elizabeth's baptist fan quilting, I have been wanting to try it out. I thought this quilt might be a good opportunity, but didn't want something quite so ordered and structured since the quilt its self is pretty ordered and structured. I played around a little and settled on this design that I'm calling "Liberated baptist fans" sort of the same idea, but my arches go every which way. It's taking forever to quilt it this way, and my arms and shoulders feel like they got a good workout after each quilting session, but I think it will be well worth it in the end.
Granny Squares Baby Quilt
During my little basting party, I pulled out my granny squares quilt top, and let it join in the fun as well. Granny will get some TLC soon, and be off to its new home hopefully in the next few days.
No pics here, but I have bee blocks out to wazoo that are crying for attention this weekend. Seeing as how Monday is the last day in April, nothing like waiting to the last minute :-)
