.a blissful weekend.

During this holiday weekend, I got to spend a lot of time in the craft room! I have not had a lot of inspiration since school started – but lately, inspiration is abundant and it seems I can’t get enough done!!

Here’s what I worked on this weekend:

I quilted and machine-sewed the binding on this baby quilt. It has a flannel backing and the backing is the ONLY thing I bought for this quilt! The entire quilt top is leftover pieces!

I finished piecing these blocks on Wednesday. Mom helped me lay them out into rows and I finished sewing them together on Friday night. This is my first quilt using the Ruby fabric by Bonnie and Camille!

I quilted and machine-sewed the binding on this table runner. It’s also made entirely of scraps! I love that!

Quilted by Marcie!

This last quilt has been sitting in the stack of quilts behind our couch since summer, I think, just waiting for the binding to be hand sewn on. I even took it to Wenatchee a few weeks ago because I thought I’d sew in the car, but didn’t. I picked it up last night while watching the Apple Cup (Go Cougs!) and then finished it this morning! YAY! Not a huge accomplishment, but it sure feels like it!

In addition to these, I sewed a border onto a quilt, prepped a quilt to be basted, and quilted & machine-sewed binding on another one (it’s in the washer right now!).

It feels great to have all of these projects done. I’ve acquired quite a stack of completed quilts on the pool table downstairs…I’m thinking about trying to sell some of them at a local craft show that is going to be held at Connell Elementary in a few weeks. I counted and have about 12 that are just sitting there…but can I part with them?!
