I need to call my Wednesday posts something else because I rarely have a WIP, I usually have FOs. But FOs doesn’t give the alliteration that WIPs does. Any ideas? Anywho, I have a small FO that has been hanging around since early August, when I just had to make 5 small Sunflower blocks.
I got them seamed end to end, layered with batting and a back, quilted, and then auditioned Prairie Points for the edge.
Prairie Points, WHY did I want to use PPs? Remind me to never use them again!!!! I won’t show the back because of the crappy job I did. Next time, sew it all inside out and then turn before quilting. Wait, did I say next time? No thank you! I am considering a pillow cover with just 1 block, to switch out with my Patriotic Cover.
I tried to stitch the back down in the car last Friday as Hubster drove south for our friend’s son’s football game. They were an hour away so we had a little sports date. But car sickness set in so I stopped and finally picked it back up this week. And here it is on the counter and then the dining table. I like it better on the counter.
I also finished a Mudsock Guild Charity Quilt this week, just needed to sew the binding on by machine. I hate doing it all by machine, but realize for the donation quilts it’s more secure to have it sewn down by machine.
Today and tomorrow are for Dental and Eye Dr visits. I have neglected both for too long, but finally made the break with my Dr’s in our previous city and found new ones here. Fingers crossed the Hygienist and I can work around my too narrow mouth and TMJ issues. Will dose up with Advil. Hope your day is full of fun and no medical visits!
