What I've Been Working On

I have been a little under the weather but I am feeling better now. I have missed all of you and am happy to be back! I have been working on a few projects. My commissioned project is an adorable baby quilt. The shop owner chose pastel batiks and a very light green batik background. The triangles that form the edges are a darker batik with little spots of the pastels in them. The backing is a light blue with little colored speckles on it. It has been fun to make. I am in the quilting process now, which is a simple stitch in the ditch on the 9 patches and then the same pattern is carried on into the solid squares. I hand basted around the edges to avoid any bias problems, a tip a sister guild member, Denise, shared with me a few years ago.
I have also finished quilting my Civil War wallhanging, now I just need to bind it and add a few things in the little squares. So that's what I have been up about you? What have you been working on? This is the challenge week so finish up a project to have a chance at a prize!! Woo Hoo!


  1. Hello,
    I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better.
    The baby quilt is lovely.
    I haven't done any quilting the last days; so many other things to do. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

  2. Thank you Oddjorg! I hope you are able to quilt soon!
