I have to have an operation next week and the spend a week on bed rest, so I want some quilts to be up to the hand stitching stage before next Friday. This week is mission quilt. I want all the basting AND quilting done on 2 quilts by the end of next weekend so the week after I can lie in bed with the tv on hand bind.
If that doesn't happen in time though I did sneak off to Spotlight and but some little embroidery kits.
Anyway here's my hand stitching bag
And here's my achievement for the weekend.
I have got all the strips sewn together for Mia's quilt and now I just have to sew in the big double squares (which is freaking me out, because it involves maths) and it'll be ready to join together and good to quilt. I even have backing for it! I bought this cute flannel sheet set at spotlight for $25 (bargain!) and I'm going to use the flat sheet as backing and then give the lot as a matching set. With luck I might even do an appliqué or something on the pillow case. Or maybe pull the case into 2 and make two tops for it. I've run out of charm squares though... Hmm will have to think about that.
Hope your weekend was equally fullfilling!
