We're a sick house again here *sigh* the kids colds have taken them over and they are both on anti biotics and coughing in tandem all night, so lots of disturbed sleep for us all (with the exception of DH who slept through the hurricane) I managed to get one to school most of the week and then the other one off lol... so just one at home at any one time :)
Today it's big boy's turn to be at home but he's snuggled up on the settee with quilts and the tv, while I did some stitching for the happy scrappy spring. I sat this morning and finished the carrot
and i'm going to start on the bunny rabbit in a bit.
During the evenings I've been doing some handstitching and I've got all the Lozenges together
Now I'm thinking I need to make the edge triangles so that I can put borders on, Lynne says to applique it onto the fabric but i'm not sure, what do u reckon ??? would have to do it by machine because it'll be washed lots.
The siblings quilt has sat on the frame all week and I decided he could watch tv just as easily with me quilting at the frame, it's still a learning curve, I'm far from perfect but today we had no thread breakages (superior bobbin thread and yli variegated cotton quilting thread) no needle breaks, not too many machine stops but I've worked out its quilt tension issues and a very heavy paperweight works miracles lol.
So now i'm auditioning binding and have had a mad lets try aqua sketch moment... think it'll add the zing I want the binding to have, I'm definitely getting more adventurous in binding choices and the vomit binding definitely makes a difference to it, will ask dh to choose...
And I put all my seweurobeean blocks together and this is what it looks like, I'm missing 2 blocks and need to make some more to make it larger,
ohhh and I made some siblings blocks.... finally I've made all 25 blocks of the pieces of cake quilt and have cut the strips ready to stitch them together
so suppose I have been quite busy when I look at this week's stuff lol... my labels arrived from spoonflower too
Don't forget it's Friday Night with friends tonight, I'm planning on some rabbit stitching if the kids are awake but if my miracle they do sleep I think some binding action may be appropriate :O)
Have a fab weekend, see u tomorrow x
