Progress


Thanks so much to all of you who left such kind comments about my scrappy mini quilt over the weekend.  I've learned that I'm not the only one who uses sewing as an alternate route to sanity. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of quilters we have online. What a blessing!


Last Thursday I received a lovely package in the mail: my treasure trove from the Ellison Lane Quilts I-Spy Charm Swap. I spent a few minutes late last night playing around with ideas for the quilt I want to make for my daughters. I'm really looking forward to putting this one together.


I'm also still churning out a few more Hello Luscious pinwheel table toppers for the upcoming ladies' tea at our house. Still loving this fabric too.


Most of my weekend was spent working on my mini quilt for the Modern Mini Challenge. All I have left to do is hand stitch the binding to the back, and it will finally be finished. I can't wait to show it to you, but I know I have to wait until next Monday. In any case, it feels good to be starting a week with something to show for the weekend.

Linking up to Sew Modern Monday, Manic Monday & Fabric Tuesday!

  1. I love the idea of I spy quilts and will be excited to see what you come up with!

    I love the whale print too! I stood in our local fabric store holding a bolt of it in the purple colorway for like fifteen minutes the other day before I concluded I didn't really *need* any, but it was so hard to put down!

  5. I love those fabrics from your i-spy swap. I am also working on my modern mini for the challenge, but I need to get moving on it since I am hand quilting it!
