On Wednesday I woke up feeling like I had the flu - so other than taking our normal walk, I stayed pretty close to home. I tried to do a little sewing, but for the most part I just took it easy and took a nap.
Thursday I felt a little better so we took our walk and then I was able to do a little more sewing. In fact I was able to finish the top to the CRQ Charity quilt. It is hard to see but I used the strips to make a rail pattern around the flag and strip of soldier fabric. Then I had enough strips left over that I ended up piecing the back.
Here's the back!
Then Friday I sandwiched it and pin basted it. So I can start quilting it any time now. After I got that pinned, I put the borders on the next charity quilt, this is for the other guild I belong to the "Stitch N Rippits". Then I needed to Piece the back and it was ready to sandwich. By the time I got that done the tables to spread out on were filled so I worked on some other stuff.
Then yesterday (Sat) I went to my free motion quilt class at Fabrics Unlimited. I asked and they didn't have any more classes for the day so they said I could spread out. So I took advantage of that and pin basted that 2nd quilt too.
I didn't make this quilt, only the borders and back. So now I have two quilts to get quilted. I used to just make the tops for charity and then give them to someone else to quilt. But one of my friends said it's a great way to practice your free motion quilting on, so I not only decided to do one - I'm a glutton and decided to do two. One for each of the guilds.
Today we're going to church and then I will start on these this afternoon. We'll see how far I get.
I'm sure I'll keep you posted on that.
Have a Blessed Day!
