If you’re blogging, you’re not sewing!

My hands have been busy with hand quilting and sewing and I finally used Gracie Queen quilt frame and Juki TL-2000 Qi but sadly no updated photos yet. It’s been snowing here for a number of days, grey and wet so I have nowhere to take pictures.

What I’ve been up to:

  • Modern Mable  hand quilting complete, I just started putting the binding on today.
  • Parcheesie has finally been bound and ready for it’s new home with my Mom!
  • Chicopee Log Cabin is quilted and waiting for binding. I had some tension problems so there’s loops on the back, it’ll be living on our bed.
  • Les Fleurs Bleu is partially quilted and needs binding.
  • Birds & Berries was quilted on the Gracie Queen frame and I screwed it up so I need to rip out all the quilting!!
  • Star Blossoms is one of my favorite quilts, I don’t have backing fabric for it yet.
  • Oh Deer! doesn’t have a backing yet either.

What’s New?

  • I purchased my first wool batting and I’m so excited to try it out! It’s Hobb’s Tuscany Wool and oh so soft and spongy.
  • I joined my first Flickr Bee, Simply Solids: A Modern {Bee}, looking forward to sending out blocks and choosing one myself!
  • Signed up for “Lucky Stars” paper piecing block of the month.

On the back burner is “Constellation” from Quilter’s Academy Vol.4.

I guess I’ve been busier than I thought!! Happy 2013!
