(More on this wall hanging in my last post, if you'd like to see the details...)
With all the sewing I've been doing this week, it's hard to believe I only have one actual finish to show for it. But I am on the verge of a few more...
I'm working on two sets of Bug Jar blocks for a swap. So far, the 20 ladybug blocks are done:
And I'm almost finished with the butterfly blocks (ten down, ten to go). These will probably be finished today, so I guess this swap could be considered finished -- for now. lol
And what I've spent the most time on this week is the Fresh Fruit quilt from my UFO challenge list. I got my top together this week and am almost finished with the quilting. I stitched in the ditch around each of the fruits and then densely stippled all over the background, thinking it would make the fruits "pop." I just have the border to finish quilting today and then it'll be ready for binding.
My free-motion is still far from perfect, but definitely passable. lol I love it!
(If you're sitting on the fence about trying free-motion quilting, as I have been for years, I encourage you to just go for it. I am having so much fun since I finally took the plunge just a couple weeks ago. It's amazing how quickly you catch on once you get started, and the quilting possibilities seem endless now. Give it a try!)
