Since my last post, I made a bunch more HSTs. Here is the first section of the flag quilt that I love and posted about when I was in Oregon.These 2 sections of HSTs are for another project and I made lots more to have available for another quilt in the future - all out of reproductions.
First thing Monday morning DH and I set up 2 large tables in the garage and he helped me baste 4 quilts! I got the idea of setting up tables in the garage from Elaine. We have some tables that we use for craft shows, but I had never thought of using them for basting - DUH! I have gotten lots of great tips from Elaine. Here's the stack of quilts that we basted.
Here's my box of HSTs ready for use.
I finished the table runner! Too bad the table won't stay this neat!
Here is the string quilt getting quilted. I finished it yesterday and am ready to sew on the binding.
This is one of the other ones we basted and it is now finished and will be delivered to a friend at my former work today.
The reason I am working so hard on quilting (besides the fact that I love to do it), is that we will be leaving on another trip in 3 weeks and I need to get as much done as I can. Even though I will have my featherweight with me, I won't have much time to use it for 5 weeks. I'm trying to think of some more hand sewing projects to take with me besides the embroidery that I have prepared and one applique block to finish.
Today, I'm going to lunch with good friends from work. It will be good to see them again.
