My "Where are Your Shoes and Socks?" quilt from last week is almost finished. I have a little bit of binding and the hanging sleeve to stitch down, and it's done. Here's a sneak peek of the blocks with sashings, before I added the borders...
I will finish it today, and I'll post the finished quilt tomorrow, if you'd like to see the end result. :o)
Over the weekend, I tackled my baby quilt project, and made good progress. I decided on a snowball/nine-patch layout of 6" blocks, and cut the pieces for two matching quilts.
Started sewing the blocks on Saturday:
And had the first top finished by Saturday evening:
It's a bright one! I was a little concerned that it might be a bit too busy, but it's growing on me. I just normally tend to go with softer colors for baby quilts, so it's probably good for me to step out of my comfort zone a bit.
My main to-dos for this week are the non-quilty variety. Clean out the fridge, shop for turkeys (probably waited too long on this one and now I'll have thawing issues), give my kitchen a good cleaning. Fun, fun. We'll have about 30 people here for Thanksgiving, but they all bring a part of the meal (one more thing to be thankful for!) so I only really have to worry about turkey. I'll cook and slice one up on Wednesday for backup and then cook the bigger one on Thursday.
So my quilting to-do list for this week includes:
* Finish binding/hanging sleeve on the shoe quilt
* Piece the second baby quilt top
Doesn't sound like much for a normal week, but I think I'll be doing well if I get this far!
Update (11/22) The Shoes are Done!
