Mid-December saw me quickly getting packed and onto a train to be with family while they attended to a family matter. So, whatever plans I had for getting some quilting done went with me on the train.
This top was put together very quickly .... as in 2 days ..... I was just getting ready to make the backing and sandwiching this top so that it would be ready for machine quilting when I got the phone call. Instead, this top was given as a Xmas present as is. :o) The idea for this top came from here. Mine looks different, but this lady sure spurred me on.
I'm back home now, suffering with a cold virus. Yuck ...
Since coming home, the girls have been my shadow and all they want to do is have their treats and play and then snooze. Lately, their favourite toy is just a simple string that is pulled underneath a piece of fabric . Both of them go nuts over this.
The only project that I had time to grab and take with me were my hexagon stars. I'm on a roll with them and have continued to keep sewing the stars together since coming home. This is my set-up for keeping the stars in order as they are sewn together. A section is removed from the design wall and pinned onto a piece of styrofoam board and then I continue to work in rows. Right now, I just don't feel like working on anything else and just need some mindless sewing. Next week will be better once this cold virus gets out of my system.
