Today I had big hopes of getting the house all cleaned up again. Then my better sense (or my lazy sense) took over and I decided to take a nap and then sew some. I finished quilting the lime green quilt and then got my mom's bones quilt loaded on the machine. I need to get her quilt done before they get here on Tuesday afternoon - so she can take it home with her - and so I can sweet talk her into doing the hand sewing on the binding of the baby quilt!
I wanted to work on something new and exciting. OK, maybe older and exciting again! So I dug out a UFO that is made from the scraps of a top I made for the owner of the quilt store Nines works at. Here is the original quilt.
And here is what I did with the leftovers! Nines - don't tell Tonya that there were that many leftovers! This wall hanging is about 60 by 30. I used almost every last scrap. Can you see on the two side outer borders where I had to add a piece of an alternate color to get enough to make the border long enough? I have got maybe a square foot of fabric left over. This was a quick little project. I already had the two main blocks done. I just added the sashing between the two blocks and then put on the outer border. Now - how to quilt it? I need my mom and Nina to lay down before they read this next sentence. Yes, i am considering hand quilting it. With those big stitches I saw over on another Maverick's blog. What do you think? Can I do this?
