wip and some sunspots

funny that this photo has sunspots on the quilt because it has been raining all day long. i must have got the few moments of sun coming through the window. my big accomplishment this week is getting the top done on my chevron quilt. but still no name. maybe "romance in the garden" because that is the name of the event my mr. and i went to after the class and it is very floral, after all. hmm. i'll think on it. it's so summery and picnic-y looking with the butterflies, daisies, sunflowers, and strawberries.

man, this was a mess coming together! despite the fact that i had the whole thing laid out on the floor, i kept sewing the wrong sashing and panels in the incorrect places. i had to unpick sections no less than 5 times. it was awful. but i just plowed through and now it is waiting for sandwiching. yay! it really was amazingly fast, completed in one weekend, under 10 hours.

the fabrics continue to make me smile giddily whenever i look at it.

weeks report:

completed: none

in process:
new top from shabby seams class started and finished
"limb" -  another 1/4 section of binding finished during park & art time tuesday
"taite" - waiting on quilting

trips to the store: one, for shabby seams class. only purchased 1/2 yard of snow fabric because i forgot mine at home. dang! i own a whole bolt of that stuff for a reason.

in the que: a whole lotta stuffes
