I was forced out of bed this morning by hungry pets at 6:00 a.m., so much for sleeping in.
After catching up on my Google Reader, I headed downstairs to my sewing area to press and fold my recent fabric haul which included Anna Maria Horner’s Aida cloth and Little Apples fat quarters. The only fabric I haven’t washed and pressed is my Echino linen/cotton mixes. FYI, the Aida cloth in grey is a perfect match with Little Apples in Pencil. I’d like to make a pillow or doll quilt with the fabric and embroider a turtle on the Aida. how cute would that be?!
I finally finished my Spin Dr. Seuss baby quilt!
The front is all flannel but I had to use some regular cotton on the back because I didn’t have enough prints and the store was sold out.
Quilt as you go wasn’t easy or fast on this quilt, perhaps because of the whirly gig pattern? I don’t know but it seemed to take forever. I am happy with the results. I should make a matching pillow with the left over scraps.
I really don’t feel like doing much today but lay on the sofa and watch movies. I would really like to make new place mats, maybe I’ll do that tomorrow…
Also planning on making gifts for my nieces and nephew.
