Date night with my son

Tonight I took my oldest son shopping for pants, out for supper, and now we are watching Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It was a nice way to end the week.

This week I finished this mini quilt. It was a fun little quilt to do. The template for it is available in 5 and 10-inch but I found a quilt store that has it in 3.5 inch.

I also finished the embroidery for a mini quilt too. I need to add the borders, quilt and bind.

I am working on stars for tablerunners. I have 3 more to make.

Cross These Projects Off My List

I was able to get some projects done this week.
3 Halloween tablerunners - one for me, one for my mom and the other went to school for a fundraiser. I LOVE the black backing fabric that I used for two of the runners.

3 Owlivias. One for my new niece who I made this baby quilt for. The other large one and the baby will go to my other niece and her American Girl doll. I made the quilt and pillow in my header for her birthday this summer.

1 Xmas table runner that will go to the school fundraiser also. I have 2 more that need to be bound.

I also finished quilting this Frolic quilt. I decided to do this in loops. I have discovered that loops and I don't get along.

I started a few new projects but am not far enough along for photos. Hopefully this afternoon or evening I will get more sewing time.

Take care!

Life Update

I spent Thursday and Friday in Madison WI at the Quilt Expo. Lots of great vendors and classes. I was very good and didn't go overboard with the spending.
Now I am playing catch-up on life back home.
Here is my quilting to-do list (hopefully to have done soon!!)
1. Bind 2 Halloween table runners and add the spider buttons
2. Bind 3 Xmas table runners and 4 coasters
3. Quilt and bind Xmas quilt
4. Finish 2 Owlivia owls (this is a Sandy Gervais pattern) so cute!
5. Finish quilting and binding Frolic quilt
6. Finish applique, quilt and bind Fall table quilt that I started last summer
7. Do embroidery on cute mini quilt pattern that I bought in Madison

Not sure how doable it all is, plus work 40 hours this week, soccer practice and games, and get our basement ready for the waterproofers who are coming in a week!!! Maybe by Thanksgiving I will have my sewing room back together. Take care. I will try and post photos of the Quilt Expo and my projects soon.
