What a great weekend. I sewed all day Friday, half of Saturday, and half of Sunday. And what do I have to show for it? Finished tops, half finished tops, and another top ready to start piecing!
Friday I finished getting Paper Moon pieced and then started on Wash and Rinse. Paper Moon is a table topper I am doing for April’s Table Scraps Challenge. Wash and Rinse is the Laundry Basket QAL from 2020, which is my 2021 UFO Challenge #4.
Saturday Hubster played golf and we had friends over to watch the Gonzaga/UCLA game. So while I was home alone I pieced another row for Wash and Rinse and got Coco Puffs into a flimsy.
1 more row of Wash and Rinse is prepped, but I ran out of steam to add it. Coco was a bear to put together, I kept getting the placement turned around. Then I prepped the borders and came up short! So, the solution was to add cornerstones. I don’t hate it, I don’t love it, it’s just what it is. I could have gotten more Grunge, but trying to determine which color it was didn’t appeal. Done is better than whatever it was.
Sunday was for Quilting!!! I should have grabbed a charity top, but decided Paper Moon was the winner. Only, how to quilt it. Which wasn’t the dilemma it usually is. I just had to choose between options 1 or 2.
Version #1 appealed to me. But trying to find the path around it was sure to include backtracking. But Version #2 really spoke to me, because I love Orange Peel!! So, I went with #2. But you will have to wait to see the results. I’m saving it for Finished or Not Friday.
And while I was planning quilting for Paper Moon I went ahead and mapped out Coco Puffs.
I did the Orange Peels into the corners first. And then I added the smaller Peels on an angle to overlap. Not wanting to include the Peels in the border I decided a cross hatch might add some texture. So that might be the final form, who knows. And that’s the facts Jack! Monday links are on tap for today.
