This week I was able to put together three more blocks for the Let It Snow quilt I have been working on.
It had been an April goal to get this quilt top done so I could start hand quilting it, but I still need to finish 3 more embroideries. There was good progress despite not completing the top. I am just worried that my hand quilting window is narrowing because of summer coming. It is really difficult for me to hand quilt when it is hot during the summer. I hope to work on the last 3 blocks as part of Slow Sunday Stitching tomorrow.
Our local quilt shop recently moved locations and to celebrate they were offering a sale. I scored on the drawing and received a 25% discount on my purchase yesterday.
I also bought a white fabric to get started on this fire truck quilt. One of my colleagues just found out she is having a little boy and her husband is a fireman for the Department of Forestry. I have had this pattern for several years and have not made it, this seems like the perfect opportunity. I think I can make it mostly from my stash...
I have been making other things, but I cannot share them until after Mother's Day! I can assure you I spent my Friday Night With Friends sewing up a storm, but don't want to ruin my surprises.
We only have 2.5 weeks of school left and then I can really focus on my quilting! I have so many projects to complete and new things I want to make!
