What I'm currently working on



Another busy weekend for me.


I'm adding the binding to the "Punctuation" quilt and then it's in the
washer & dryer before it goes to it's new home.

_______________________________________________________

I cut up 180 squares, and then sewed them together to make 90, and then cut them to make 180 triangles, and then I pressed them all open to have a total of 180 squares. (does that makes sense?) That took about 4 hours and my back is now hurting from being bent over the cutting table, sewing machine and standing up to iron/press.





I've decided on 2 different quilts with this material.

The Zig Zag




The Pinwheel

I'm making a Sock Monkey story book quilt as well. This one is going to be fun to make. Who doesn't love Sock Monkeys?!! My girls would giggle when I sang them this song when they were little.
