Regarding the practice piece yesterday. That was the Western wall hanging in my WIP list. I'm leaving it as a WIP for now b/c I may rip out all those stitches or, more easily since someone was able to direct me to the designer of the pattern, get a new pattern and make a new one without all the building and creating errors. We will see but my original intent to have it as a wall hanging has not disappeared so that keeps it as a WIP.
Now, the LSU quilt top is complete and will be quilted today. Since I am going to do a meander stitch with LSU and Tigers written in randomly, this should quilt fairly quick. I need to make the binding strips still out of some leftover fabric for this one. I may not get this complete today because I can't machine bind and keep the sewing "hidden" but I'm going to try!
The penguin wall hanging needs to have the binding finished and the embellishments sewn on. I believe this will be complete today! Hooray!
Finally, the top I finished last night (except the outer border which will be completed in about 20 min.) and a call for help. This is my original design and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. So thrilled in fact, I am going to write down what I did so I have the record if I ever want to make it again. I never knew a creation from start could be so satisfying. I've had some concerns along the way I measured or cut wrong, etc. but so far so good. This will be backed by a light minky fabric. I do not plan to put any batting in. I have a few quilting ideas but decided I would call out to you in blog land for your ideas as well. I love ideas to choose from.
Now, how are YOUR projects going? Feel free to pop over to Judy L.'s site to check in on all the other quilting fools this weekend!
