Weekend Projects

Our weather is supposed to be cloudy and stormy most of the weekend, so you know what that means? Sewing!

I am diligently working on finishing the quilting on my zig-zag quilt.

quilting the zigzagSo far, that is going very well. I am pleasantly surprised at how well my machine can handle quilting a larger quilt.

I also have to sew my strips into blocks for the quilt-along. I think I will have enough for about 46 blocks, which should make a good size quilt.

Mod Girls strips ready for piecingHaven’t started that yet, but I will get to it.

I also cut the pieces for a mini quilt I am making for the Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap. Check out the photo pool of other minis being exchanged. There’s a lot of gorgeous creativity going on out there! 

pieces for mini quiltI have been thinking about this project for about two weeks now, not sure what I wanted to make. For some reason, I hadn’t been struck with my usual light-bulb idea for this project.  Sure enough, late Friday night while playing with different combinations of fabrics in my stash, I came upon a pile of Pop Garden fabrics that I knew would be perfect for the look I’m going for.

I have a lot of work to do today, so I’m off to get busy. Hope you enjoy a fabulous weekend!
