Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Vacation Squirrels!

 

I don’t have to go back to work until Tuesday, which is good because I’ve been distracted by a few ‘squirrels’.  First up, this lap quilt.  It’s a variation on Simple Simeon, a Villa Rose pattern. The top was first, then a pieced backing.

The binding is attached to the back, folded to the front and stitched with a decorative stitch.  I quilted it with a dragonfly pattern.

Before I finished the dragonflies, I got distracted by some fabric in my stash.

I’ve had the cat and butterfly fabrics for a while.  The pink flowers are slightly newer, and the purple was bought for the border on the Log Cabin quilt.  I haven’t figured out a backing for this yet, but hope to have it quilted and bound before I go back to work.

Monday or Tuesday morning I watched a video on what to do with your ‘ugly’ fabric. I like this better than I thought I would. I found backing and binding in my stash and made a ‘frankenbatt’. It should be finished tomorrow.

A quilt shop about 30 minutes from me on the north side of town, is going out of business. I’ve not been able to get up there, but earlier this week I received an email. 75% off.  Since I was off, I decided to go to see if I could find anything.

Today’s adventures take me to 2 other quilts shops — the trip has been planned for a couple of weeks, but I may just have to swing back by the shop going out of business. I want to see if they have any of the ‘wheat’ colored fabric left. I bought 3 yards, but now I’m wishing I got more.

I cleaned my sewing room, putting away the fabric which has been laying about as well as the fabric I purchased. There is still some on top of my boxes, but mostly backings.

With all of these squirrels, I have managed to cross a few things off The List.

Not only are Ruby’s quilts trimmed, she should have them this afternoon.
