It's 6:15 pm and the quilting is done. Now all that's left to do is the binding. In a couple of hours I'll be watching my grandsons and plan to get the hand stitching of the binding finished. It 's been a busy, but extremely fun day sewing with you all. I've visited alot of your blogs and have enjoyed your lovely projects. Thank you all for your comments and encouragement along the way! See you guys at the next Party!!!
It's a little after 5pm now and I've attached the border and sandwiched the batting and back fabric together. I've begun the quilting on the heart and I'm just about done with that. Still need to quilt on the white background.
Finally the top is done (it measures 19"x 17.5" right now). The pinning, pressing and lining up of each of these rows seemed to take forever, well it's complete now. It's now 2pm and I'm really hungry. Gonna have some hot dogs, pasta salad and a drink and get back to sewing. (Photo not loading right now???) Had lunch and came to try again and the photo loaded. Guess I just needed to eat something.
I did some blog hopping and you ladies have some really great projects going. This is so much fun!
It's 11:30 and this is my progress so far. I'm off to visit some blogs, socialize for a bit than return to sewing this together and designing the borders.
This Valentine "Sewing Party" with Kelly, Joan and all you gals is going to be fun. My first project for today is a heart wall hanging. Here's a photo of the fabric I'll be using. I still need to cut the background fabric and sew it together.
My second project is some small treat bags. See photo of one I've sewn together. I'm planning to make a couple of dozen of these.
I'm looking forward to visiting you all and seeing your projects.
Off to Sew!!
