WIP 13/5/15

The past couple of weeks have been a blur, to be honest as I write this I cannot really remember the last week...lol
Anika has four molars coming in and she is fighting her naps so it has been a long week. I did get a bit of sewing done though.

I got the fabric blocks made. It took me awhile to understand what I was suppose to do. I sewed the four sides together and the it said sew on top and bottom and it was thinking wth how do I do that....I eventually figured it out though..lol
Does Anika like them...meh she doesn't really care that they are there. I am quite happy with how they turned out though


I also got the Greek cross blocks sewn together. As I posted on Thursday I wanted to leave it as it, but I'm still torn as to whether or not I now want to make it bigger or not. So right now I have it hanging on entertainment centre. I am siding with putting on a grey border and then quilting it up.

I also got the borders sewn onto my snails trail quilt. I think it turned out pretty good. Now I need to decide on how to quilt it.

2015  Sewing Mission Statement
In order to try and get some UFO's done this year I am going to try and keep my current to do list small and just work on one thing at a time. I am going to try and not start anything "new" but instead take one thing off of my no progress list each month.

  1. Cute blocks - my daughter made some for her little one - she prefers to get to the remotes and electronic buttons. A grey border would look great and be a wonderful framing of that quilt. The snail trail came out wonderful with all your frets.

  2. Your quilt tops look great, I hope you are happy about them both now?

  3. Your quilts and blocks look amazing! I recall those "I can't remember what I did last week" (or even yesterday!) moments when the kids were younger - they are 8 & 9 right now. Trust me, it does get better.

  4. I am amazed at how much you're getting done with a little one around. Both quilts look wonderful!

    I remember those looong nights when my children were teething - followed by the fussy days. Thankfully, they do pass rather quickly. Though I never believed that when I was in the middle of it!
