I didn’t do as much work last week on Ryan’s quilt as I planned to, but yesterday I started the last seven compass star blocks and some of the border pieces. I’m so excited to see this one done and on our bed!
I’m still working on the quilting of the elephant baby quilt. Often by the time I get to the quilting stage, I get impatient and either choose straight-line quilting, or I free-motion quilt in a rush- ending up with sloppy work. Since there is no deadline for this one, I’m taking the time to really work on improving my free-motion skills on my domestic machine. And taking the time to do things right is making everything go much smoother!
This quilt is a last-minute baby shower gift for a friend from church. Fortunately, I had exactly what I needed in my stash to make her something that coordinates with the baby’s nursery. I love it when that happens! Quilting and binding will have to happen before Friday night.
