I just kept sewing yesterday!


By the time yesterday was done,  I had worked a bit on FIVE different quilts.  Well six, if you count the prep work on a customer top I’m fixing to start quilting.  But I made a little bit of progress on five of my own WIP’s.  Yay!

I made great headway on my Boston Commons.  I have one more row like these, then adding white fabric around and between, a pieced border, and then I am going to add an additional plain border all around so I have some more space to quilt feathers in.  The original pattern, which is by Darlene Zimmerman, ends with a narrow border of the the squares and white triangles.

While I was sewing Gracie’s Star together, and while I was piecing on the above quilt, I worked on my leaders/enders quilt, Oklahoma Backroads, and I had my embroidery machine running, cranking out some blocks for a red & white Christmas quilt.

And then, when I went to bed, I took my 9P & stripe quilt with me, and worked on knotting and burying some of the thread tails I left on it.  I should have done it while I was going along on it…now it feel like I will never get them all done.  😦  I’m glad I decided to go back to a backtack before I finished.  And I still have to bind it!

I did get my backing and binding picked out for Gracie’s Star.  Now I just have to decide on which quilting pattern I want to use.  I think it’s a bit dark & busy to spend a lot of time on custom, but a pretty allover will finish it off nicely.

The first part of this year I just kept starting new projects.  Maybe this last part will be about finishing!  I would like to finish these projects I have started with my stash fabrics!

  1. I’m not going to say anything else about your Boston Commons quilt because I don’t want you to suspect me when it disappears from your house some day. I covet that quilt and it’s not even done! Your embroidery blocks are beautiful too! Sounds like it was a fantastic day.

  2. Wow, Randi! I planned to work on a project today, but it just didn’t happen. There are still a few hours left in this day, so I’m going to sew after I fix dinner. You are inspiring!

    p.s. I love the Bostom Commons quilt!

  3. I love the redwork block you did on your embroidery machine. It’s nice to know I’m not the only that buries those thread tails. Great job working on all those projects!
