I had planned this post for last week and the time got away from me. I have WAY TOO MANY works in progress but progress is the operative word!
I have been itching to make another quilt top using my Not So Twin Strips pattern and my local quilt shop, Roxanne’s wanted a sample using fabric from their store so my first WIP is this quilt top. Needs a back and quilting and it will be complete.
I also have had an upholstery project on the back burner for some time. My daughter and son-in-law picked up these two chairs at a garage sale awhile back and the plan was to put them in my granddaughter’s room for a reading nook. They spent some time in the man cave but were relieved of their duty there a couple of months ago but needed some help before they could live in the house.
I found some neutral courderoy online for cheap and bought enough to cover both chairs. It turned out to be a MUCH bigger chore than I expected – curves and seams and lots of frustration later – ONE chair is finished! Both chairs are in the room so I will have to get that second one complete quick!
It’s a cute little reading nook for little girls with a basket of books between the chairs!
And the last project this week was a very old UFO that has been languishing in a drawer for a couple of years. This was a mystery quilt from a class I took at the Long Beach International Quilt Show a few years ago. I made a couple of mistakes when trimming the blocks so my points were not going to be great so I stashed it. BUT, it finally made it out of the drawer.
The center of the quilt top is complete and I will add a couple of borders and then it will be ready for a back and quilting. I think I kinda like it! That is definitely progress!
Thanks for checking in.
