The reason the week has seemed extra long is because I have been working on the garage sale fund raiser at my church - it raises funds for the women's ministry. First it was taking in all the donations, then pricing and arranging and then yesterday was the first day (very successful). Today is the final day. We are all very tired!
I finished quilting this baby quilt earlier this week. The blocks are from my guild in Texas. Before I moved, I had signed up for a "block of the month" where each month you make an assigned block. Then you turn it in. There are 12 people in each group and at the end of the year you have 12 sets of blocks with different themes. Then you draw and everyone gets one set. Since we moved in the middle of the year, I mailed mine in for June through December and my name drew the baby blocks. I think they turned out very cute.
I wasn't sure how I was going to quilt it and after quilting one block (top right) I decided I didn't like that quilting, so I changed it to the lines. I didn't mark anything, except the 2 lines in the rectangles that form a "V" and I marked that with a hepa marker. The top right block might just stay the way it is, but I am thinking about taking out the quilting and making it like the rest.
This is the end of my cow fabric. I had bought it at a garage sale and used it to back several baby quilts.
I think it might take me another week to recuperate from the garage sale! I'll be happy to get back to having more time to sew.
