This weeks sewing project was to concentrate on getting bindings done. I accomplished five, yay! Two bed size, one lap size and two wall hangings. First up was my Moda Building Blocks which I had already made the binding for. Then the Petite Union Blues quilt, I used the left over border fabric for the binding on it. My postcards for cuties quilt got the same. The Rock Candy quilt has been in the “almost done” pile for a few months now. It got the same binding as the Small World quilt (which I finished quilting this week).
I enjoyed quilting this piece, its not very large 52″ X 33″. Lots of tiny stitches, I used Superior threads Kimono silk in an off white color for all the quilting. Also had a scrap of wool batting that was just the right size. The backing is Free Fall, left over from my Allietare quilt, again just the right size. I want to wash and block this before I hang it. Here’s a bit of quilting on the backside.
Also to post are a few pictures of my “new” sewing table. It’s still in the garage as I want to paint it before it goes into my new sewing space. The floors of which will be done next week.
The carriage bolts are countersunk, so I can use my sew steady table as a surround for my machine. Or , come to think of it, the plastic table that came with my machine. These next two weeks will involve a lot of moving things around from room to room. I have started emptying closets and purging a bit, but now I need to empty the rooms by next Monday.
I don’t think there will be much time for sewing this week. I’d like to get a quilt on my long arm frame, so I can have a respite from moving duties.
Linking up today with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday .
