WIP Wednesday: interruptions 'r us
After the fiasco of the TARDIS laptop cover, I remeasured, and cut and sewed anew...and it's all done!
cot quilt: disappearing harvest
This is the first quilt top I've quilted myself using FMQ. I borrowed a friend's Bernina 4400 and, after basting and a practise run, I plunged in.
The front: disappearing squares with a harvest/fall charm pack.
The back: harvest/fall fabric.
It's not perfect, there are sections which could definitely do with improvement, but on the whole I'm pretty happy with it.
It'll make a nice cot quilt to sell on eBay!
Books and Blocks bee
The only thing I still have in progress is my February block for Lauralei143 - the Diamond Ripples block - but I didn't take any photos of that.
- Scrap Attack: Dirty Dancing - didn't have a chance to begin sewing before we had to move everything out
- Modern Traditions - ditto - no time, and now no space due to kitchen renovations
March is going to be a very quiet month for me - we're renovating the kitchen and it's a big project, involving moving all the stuff in the kitchen out into the living room - my sewing space.
So right now, my sewing room looks like this:
Not exactly conducive to quilting, is it?
We also have two new members of the family!
Meet Smokey (grey tabby) and Mal (brown tabby with orange):
They're running me off my feet right now, and I'm kind of exhausted.
So it's going to be slow going in the next couple of months.
That's my week: how was yours?
