Weekend of Quilting

It may be beautiful out but between the humidity and the wind blowing the pollen around my eyes are burning and my lungs are tight.  Of course, this isn’t stopping me from having the windows WIDE OPEN and enjoying the weather!!

I worked a little on a LOT of projects this weekend.

-Squared up, made a hanging sleeve, sewed on binding to my Braided Starburst Wall Hanging.  All that’s left is hand sewing the binding down.

-Made the back for Flowers for Kashmir.

-Put narrow inner borders on Between Friends Jr & Yellow Brick Road.

-Put outer borders and made bindings for two Urban Cabin Quilts.

-Made backing for Tweed Twist AND pieced enough black batting together to be able to get it loaded onto the quilt frame. I took 6 scraps of black batting and turned them into one 80” X 92” piece that I’m calling Franken-Batting.  Was able to quilt half of it with a really small stipple.

- Worked on blocks for Mike’s Green Bay Packer Quilt & the Baby Quilt version.  The baby quilt version will be donated to C.U.R.E. 54’s Silent Auction at the end of July.

-Put a bright colored flange on a small hexagon wall hanging, attached binding and hand sewed it down.  It’s only 14” Square so the question is, does it need the regulation 8” hanging sleeve for a quilt show?
