Young Son was at a Boy Scout function. Daughter was with a church group. Husband was working.
It was just me and the sewing machine…Ahhh! Sweet time. About 4 hours.
As part of a complete splurge, I prepared backs for three quilts that are being sent out for quilting. There is such a surplus of finished tops in my life that I do not have the skill to machine quilt, nor the time to hand quilt. So, three of them are going out for some simple quilting that will allow them to be truly finished.
Then, my attention was all for the Fading Charms Quilt. It is coming along nicely. In fact, it will be a finished top this week with a tutorial to follow very soon. If you are following its progress and are eager to get started on one of your own, the first step is a single 100-patch. Yes, 10 charms by 10 charms. I am using 2-1/2″ pieces, but you can also use 2″ or even 1-1/2″ if you like.
So, I am feeling great with so much sewing time. One can easily stitch away nearly any of the little bumps of life. Hmm…if we could get world leaders to start a quilting club…
