Hello! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I spent more time organizing this weekend than sewing, but I know it will make for a lot more sewing and quilting time soon, so I figure it was time well spent!
I was able to finish up four more blocks for my half-square triangle scrappy sampler. This is the work in progress I’m hoping to finish this month and since I
have 21 of the 25 blocks completed now I’m hopeful I can get this finished up. I did run out of half-square triangles, though, so I’ll need to make some of those before I can make any more blocks. All of the half-square triangles I’ve used until now have been left overs from other projects or from friends, so I feel like this is a true scrap quilt!
I also finished up one more project bag this weekend. While cleaning and organizing I found another quilted back and piece of vinyl cut to size. I figured I’d better finish it up before I forgot what it was for!
I also quilted up a piece of Soft & Stable for a future project. Often the thing that keeps me from simple projects is not having the pieces ready to go. So I figured this was another good investment of my time this weekend.
The machine I used more than any other this weekend, though, was my label maker (Brother P-Touch PT-D210 Label Maker). I wish I had learned to make good use of this a lot earlier in my quilting life. On Saturday I labeled, labeled, and labeled some more. I even labeled things I knew I might be moving later on because the labels are easy to remove from plastic, and it will keep me more organized in the meantime.
More on this tomorrow for this weeks Quilt Your Stash post!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
