This week, I’ve just about finished the Harry Potter bookshelf quilt, which I am counting because I only have about 30 minutes worth of binding left on it and I’m pretty confident I can knock it out tonight. I’ll take pictures of it this week, I think, since the weather should be clear if cold. You can see my Instagram feed from this week for detail shots of some of the quilting. Fair warning – I sewed through my fingernail this weekend, and while there’s no pictures of it, there is a picture of the bent needle, which is quite impressive!
I also had block pick up for Saturday Sampler this weekend, so here’s the latest Sparkling Gems (with bonus Morelli toes as he was walking into the shot) and the first block in the new program, which I am doing in a 30’s fabric selection:
The serendipity of scrap projects is the hidden gems you get when you’re piecing blocks together:
I should have the Allietare top put together this week – all the borders and binding are cut, and the blocks and borders are pieced, and the back is designed. I’m also working in EQ7 quite a bit on another project that I hope to make some progress on as well.
I did have a little bit of intake this week as I picked up backing for another quilt near completion and a Edyta Sitar layer cake that was on sale 50% off, so I couldn’t pass it up!
