Oh yes, I have indeed stitched for 6 days in a row. I can hardly believe it myself! I must admit though, that for 3 of those days I didn't do any stitching until 11.30 at night and squeezed it in just so I could keep on track. But it still counts, right?!!
I have just finished sewing down the binding on another mini quilt. This one is 8x9" I used some yummy wools for the background - they were so nice to work with! And we happen to have had snow again last night, so I thought real snow would make an interesting background for a quilt with 'woolen' snow!
I didn't need to look any further than out my living room windows to get inspiration for this one. Lots of snow, blue/grey skies and bare trees. That about sums it up! Plus with the ice-storms we have been having, there are a lot of lop-sided trees in NH at the moment. If you want to read more about that, you can pop over to my other blog where I did a post about it back in December.
But back to the little quilt, since showing the quilting on the back was so popular with my tiny house, I took a photo of the back of this one too, though you won't see the quilting as well because of the patterned background...
So on my sewing schedule today is a bag to put my grocery bags in. At first I was thinking of doing a cylindrical one like this...BUT then I saw this lovely one on Pink Penguin yesterday, and am leaning heavily to that style. I could use lots of scraps and just do wonky strips. So in other words, today I plan to do some stripping!
