I got the lucky chance to pattern test for Bijou Lovely. I made two versions. I'm debating holding on to one of them for a faculty member having a baby. I want to make her a quilt, but I'm not sure I'll have time to start one from scratch between now and the baby shower. We'll see.
Vintage #1 and 2
I finally finished the Pirate's last shopping bag!!!
He uses them religiously at the farmer's market.
Other items finished today...two blocks for an emergency quilt from the Heal Circle at do.Good.Stitches.
I've also made some progress on the Charm (Prayer Flag) Quilt:
It still needs sashing, but I have backing fabric and binding fabric picked. I want to get the top done (and maybe basted) by Sunday.
I've not made major progress on the Red, Grey, and Black. I'm still hand quilting the first block. Blarg. There are 16, I think.
On tap for tomorrow:
hitting the post office.
8 pt star
finishing the Cosmic Burst top (trying to get back pieced for Sunday as well)
Other things in the works:
still need to quilt the Skill Builder
I've stuck the interfacing on the Boxy Bag, but that's as far as I've gotten with that one.
I'd really like to get two more finishes this weekend, whatever they may be. Still feels good to have four down!
