Well, I finished that baby quilt I was working on, so mostly have been moving forward with Coin Op. I got the flower design marked randomly all over the top with a little help:
I’ve not yet had a chance to start quilting yet due to a variety of factors, most of which are emotional and awkward and have me not able to focus on quilting (see also: motherhood). I’ve been able to fiddle with little things, though, so I also managed to do the following things that don’t require consistent brain power:
- Clipped all the dogears on the buffalo HSTs from Faceted Jewels, which is about 288, or maybe 576. It is a pantload, regardless of the total number. These will finish about 2″, and I’m going to use them to make pillow shams for our bed.
- I am fairly close to getting the Faceted Jewels quilt back from my LAQ, but don’t think I’ll make the deadline to have it finished-finished by the end of the month. I did cut and get the binding prepped and ready to go.
- I sewed together the 49 buffalo HSTs leftover from the Pinwheels and Patchwork quilt into a little panel (about 16″ total). Not quite sure what else I’ll do with them other than add a stop border and slab pieced border to make it into another baby quilt. Possibly might turn it into a little changing pad or diaper clutch or something to go with the quilt for my friend.
- I made a couple more Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks from the Swap-Bot swap with the Quiltcast Supergroup. One of my partners flaked, but apparently I have a Fairy Blockmaker. I’m not sure 8 blocks is enough to make a decent sized quilt so I wanted a couple more to throw in with the ones I’m getting from the swap.
