I’m on track, the quilt top is pieced and sandwiched. Then I stall. What’s a crafty person to do when they have a deadline to quilt and bind a quilt?…start some new projects of course.
First Roan’s little friend was turning five. Her mom is crafty as all get out. So Saturday before the party I did this pillow. Cancel out Saturday.
I had started piecing some squares for Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl Quilt. I dug through my scraps and collected a bunch of Amy Butler for my first ring.
I was happy to be done with one complete ring. I learned some new quilting skills for sure. Truthfully, I’ll be lucky if I can get four total with my attention span. Four would make a baby quilt and make me happy.
Sunday I quilted a few squares, and thought that I should finally get to that lounge pant pattern I have had for about three years. Roan would love it right?
The first pair with the monkeys were ok. I hate it when the cuff is sewn though and not encased. So I made another pair with some Star Wars flannel that Roan requested. I top-stitched the zig-zagged seams and made the legs less tapered. Still not exactly what I wanted, but I had to put the project aside to quilt.
Monday through Thursday I was really good at going for a run and piddling away the day. Quilted some squares here and there. Here it is Sunday and I have finally finished the sixteen squares and picked out some fabric for aprons instead of doing the binding. There’s always the plane right?
