Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a super day. I say it every week, it’s Friday and Friday is my favourite day of the week. My Friday has been dark, dreary and very foggy!!! Come on spring, where are you???
So, what have I been up to today? Well apart from walking my Maisie dog first thing this morning, I haven’t set foot outside the door. So, I mooched about doing a bit of this and that at my favourite slow and measured pace. I got a few loads of laundry done. I messed around in my sewing room for a bit and waited for my alarm man to perform an annual service on my house alarm.
This afternoon I decided to start prepping the penultimate block of my Moving Forward quilt project. I’m going to miss having this project to plan and work on when it’s all done. In the meantime, I still have to plan the borders. I have absolutely no idea what to do with the borders at this point. Once all the centre blocks have been joined together I might have a better idea whether I need a busy border or just a simple plain border. Here’s a little peek at what I prepped this afternoon …..
Once I traced my three hearts onto Freezer Paper I cut and ironed on the shapes to my chosen fabric …..
And once I cut the fabric shapes out leaving a ¼” margin I was ready to turn and sew the margins onto the Freezer Paper in readiness for tacking onto the background fabric …..
I have one more 6” block to piece. I’ve run out of ideas for blocks for this project. All it needs is a simple block. I’m sure I’ll come up with a simple subject for my last block this weekend. Inspiration is all around me.
To end this last post of the week I need your help. I was asked for help in making a lap quilt for someone who is an electric wheelchair user. I have no idea where to start in terms of size and shape for practicality. So, if anyone has any ideas or knowledge please feel free to post a comment. I think this is quite important so please don’t hesitate to help. This is something I have no experience in.
So, it’s been another pretty good week in my little world. I hope you all have a super cosy/weekend evening doing something you truly enjoy doing. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching.
