My Welcome to Canada Quilt is just waiting for me to hand sew the binding down on the back, and for me to add the label sent by the organizer.
I also sewed one of two missing borders on my daughter's modern I-Spy quilt and prepped the other border but still have not sewn it on. I have the fabric for the backing but prepping backing is sort of boring sewing, you know what I mean?
I managed to sew together the quilt top for my husband's cousin's baby, due in late February. This baby gets a gender neutral quilt because mom and dad opted not to find out the sex. They are outdoors sort of people. I think I'm going to name it Canadian Wilderness.
|You can see the backing peeking through- a mustard with trees, accented with a white with mustard trees.|
I also prepped a whole bunch of paper piecing templates for a quilt for my new nephew coming in March. It is going to be epic!
I am proud that I have not
a) bought any new fabric (not that I'm on a fast, per say, but more that I'm buying only things I truly LOVE)
b) started any new sewing projects.
Perhaps I can get these done in time!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Love "Canadian Wilderness" as a name for this! :) I've never made a "tumbler" quilt, it's really cute!ReplyDelete
Good for you. I want to try not to buy any fabric for a while, too. But I had to for a specific project I'm working on...does that count?ReplyDelete
I think the solid teal was a great addition. Congrats on not buying fabric or starting new projects.ReplyDelete
Looks awesome as alwaysReplyDelete
Good for you in sticking to your goals for the month. There's nothing wrong with a little quilt ADD if it gets the job done! I was inspired by you donating a quilt to a Syrian newcomer to Canada and sent one of my hoarded baby quilts to the family my in-laws are sponsoring in Cape Breton.ReplyDelete
