My design wall is exactly the same as last week, but I managed to make and sew the binding on 4 quilts. They are ready for hand stitching.
I also cut out all the blocks for April for the FW projects.
Everyone had a fun and productive sewing weekend at the library. My niece attended with her beautiful baby Lillyn. She had plenty of helpers for holding the baby.
Ellen was working so hard on cutting out the FW blocks that she had to get a second table to regroup. She that huge pile of scraps! That almost looks as bad as my bucket. She didn't even bring her machine to tempt her to start sewing.
I finished a few more FW blocks and I hung them all to see how they looked. Just looking at the blocks, I thought I had too much orange. After I hung them on the design wall, I think the colors are looking pretty even. There is a lot of yellow and orange, but it isn't overwhelming.
Char worked on making these butterflies. I love the bright and cheery colors. Wouldn't this be a great scrap quilt!
This week I plan to sew 2 more bindings on quilts and do some quilting. I am counting the days down for my quilt shop adventure.
Check back with Judy to see what others are working on.
Have a great week. Stop back later this week to see more FW blocks.
