I got quite a bit accomplished sewing-wise yesterday! First up, I can finally call the T-Shirt quilt FINISHED! I had started quilting this one in mid-October, but it felt like such a struggle, so it got tossed to the side to wait for a bit. Thankfully I figured out WHY it felt like I was fighting the quilt and my machine (one little setting was not correct) and I was able to quickly finish it up on Friday! So I made the binding yesterday and got it bound (I machine bind all of my quilts, binding is my least favorite thing to do, so I want it done as quickly as possible!). Here is the front:
and the back:
I FMQd some "scribble" around each T-shirt block and then just for fun, did a very rough trace around each Longhorn. After it was finished, I promptly presented it to Girl who has an icky cold! (She was very happy!)
After I finished up the T-shirt quilt, I got to finishing my 36 Rainbow strip blocks, so here they are:
And then I took a break from the machine and watched some Pirates of the Caribbean with Girl (we are now on the 3rd movie) and did a bit of hexie work while watching:
and after watching the 1st pirate movie we jumped into the 2nd and finished up the Scrappy Stash QAL quilt top:
I originally was going to use some Kona Med. Gray to finish it off, but found I didn't have quite enough in my stash, so instead used some Designer Solid in Manatee that I happened to have quite a bit of stashed away.
so now, just need to work on getting the backing done and then baste it and quilt it!
A few errands to run today, and then hopefully right back into the stitching! Right now I must dash, Girl is waiting to start pirates #3 for me!
