Slow car stitching!
I have been working every single day, or I have been riding in the car, on a road trip. Whew! Nice to have a day off to catch up on everything. Above is my plaid Jewel box quilt. It is bound! Whoop! I did it in the car, and it is KING sized. It went quickly, though; I am so glad it is bound now and ready to use.
I cannot get a picture of the whole thing; it is just too big. Lots of shirts and plaid fabrics in this one!
I am pretty much in love with the Circular thinking quilt. I appliqued lots of circles onto squares, in the car...and have lots to go. I am finding it great fun to remember all these old scraps, and some new scraps, too. I am liking the whimsical children's fabrics, too...just as much fun for me as for children, I think! I will include more pieced circles now, too, to sprinkle in, for interest. Great fun, and I am loving this project!!!
Hand quilting and binding small things...I have made three of the little basket blocks, for mug rugs. PROGRESS is the word!!!
