There is so much to catch up on this week...
It is hard to believe I have been this productive but as I begin to write this I realize why my house is such a disaster and the is still laundry on the couch to be folded. Oh well!
First, a little swap love!
I few weeks back the Scrappy Pin Cushion Swap started and I was very excited to participate. This being my first swap and all. My contribution is still under wraps until I send it out but yesterday I received my pin cushion and a few goodies. Aren't they delicious? I couldn't be happier, she did an excellent job, the piece work is amazing.
On to other things... the memory quilt I have been working is coming together nicely. I have all the blocks together and now I am ready to sash, but I can't quite decide between white or light pink. What do you think?
I also worked on my first paper pieced string quilt. It was definitely out of my comfort zone. I think my biggest problem with it is how it moved through my machine. It wasn't as smooth as I am use to, but last week Cheryl suggested I try muslin as a foundation instead of paper. Next time I will give that a try because I think I will like that better. Now I am left with all this paper to remove, and quite frankly I am not looking forward to that.
My Miniature HST quilt is finished and even hung on the wall.
I know, how exciting is that!
You can read more about this quilt here and here, and if you are inspired to make one of your own, check out how to make these Miniature HSTs here.
Sadly my scrap quilt still sits untouched and unloved.
Hope everybody has a happy WIP Wednesday and I can't wait to catch up on all that you guys have going on.
