I’ve always loved to make lists…I have lists of works in progress, lists of things I want to make, and yes, I’ve even started my Christmas project list! Sometimes, though, the lists get a little too long for my comfort level…and I need to finish up some things and check them off! Saturday was that kind of a day…I set out to finish 10 works in progress…I only finished eight, but I feel a lot better!
My first finish was to bind my “Jelly Parfait” quilt…one of my favorite quilts ever! Not only do I love this because it’s a scrappy version (I used fabrics from 3 Fig Tree lines, Mill House Inn, Fresh Cottons, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s), but I also love it because the quilting on it is stunning! Diana, who does all of the amazing quilting for Joanna did the long-arm work on this quilt (you can contact Diana about her quilting at QuiltedGrammy@aol.com).
I then set out to complete three bags…first was a Verna bag that I’d started awhile ago. I usually make fabric handles but have been loving purse handles lately (you can find the purse handles here). You can sew them on by machine or by hand…I actually sewed mine on by hand using a double strand of matching quilting thread.
I also made a bag using Breakfast at Tiffany’s…I love the rich colors of these fabrics…the combination of the blues and browns are my favorites! Again I used a purse handle, which I love!
Also finished up my end of summer bag using Meadowsweet 2.
(Another picture of the same bag…had to show both sides)!
And while I was working with Meadowsweet 2…I decided to finish up an apron…
I made it reversible with fabrics from the first Meadowsweet on the other side. So…one quilt bound, borders and backs on another, three bags and an apron…oh, and I sewed another quilt back (not pictured). With these finishes checked off–I think I’m going to start a few more projects–that’s okay, right?! Have a great day!
