Unfortunately, the giveaway winner, Cori, has not sent me her information yet! And since she is a no reply blogger, I can't email her!
So this is a last appeal to Cori to email me! If I don't hear from her by this Sat, then I will draw another name!
On a good note, I have had this week off from work and I have gotten a few projects started, a few almost finished... It feels great!
I was able to put the binding on two quilts for charity and am just sewing down the other side. I think I need to learn how to machine sew (nicely!) the binding on to both sides. Anybody do that? How do you like it?
I also made of wonderful Mei Tai baby carrier using the pattern from Sew Liberated for a woman at work- grandbaby #2 this year!- and it came out so sweet! I love the colors. And the print is a very soft, adorable flannel- yum!
Without a baby, it is hard to show how cute it is- check out the pattern! It is super easy to make.
This grandbaby is a girl, but I wanted to make it so that it would work for a boy in case there are future siblings!
I'm am also starting a quilt- I saw it on Bloomin Workshop. She did a quilt-a-long a while back and I just loved the quilt. Isn't her quilt gorgeous?
It is called Wild Geese... and I must be crazy for starting this!
Here are some of my fabrics that I have for it. I had collected some plaids ages ago, and I recently grabbed a few more while I was out on the shop hop. I got a few FQs for $1! How cool is that?!
I also picked up a soft, buttery yellow to be the background. I am also making mine bigger- 5 x5 blocks, so 25 in all.
I had to decide how to place the geese within the block- there are a lot of options. Such as this:
And I have decided to go "All Out"! I think that is what I will call this quilt- Going All Out!
It helps if you don't sew them together wrong- and this is only the first block! Sigh!
I better get used to it- I am sure it won't be the last time I do that! My seam ripper and I are best friends!
Only 24 to go, and a whole lot of extra geese for sashings! I think I need 202 extra geese! Wow! I hope I figured that out wrong!
