I spent Friday Night with Friends virtually and a bottle of Redd's Apple Ale! I finished piecing this quilt for a 9 year old. It has Angry Birds fabric, not my favorite fabric or easy to figure out a design that would show the large print fabrics. I just cut a 3.5 inch squares for the centers and surrounded them with 3.5 inch strips making 9 inch finished square in square blocks. I plan on quilting it vertically along the seams and in the middle of the squares with a wavy stitch. Keep it simple is my motto when working with fabrics like this...Check out what everyone else accomplished here http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/today-is.html
Today I joined my mom and Lindsey for some real stitching with friends. I worked on my sewing machine cover and mat. I am going to try to machine quilt it diagonally tonight. This is a Lori Holt design from her row along book. It think it will be perfect to use for traveling with my Singer Featherweight. I pieced the hourglass blocks at the beginning of summer and just now got around to putting them all together, but I have a retreat coming in October and I want to have this ready.
I also pinned this door hanger to hand quilt during football tomorrow for Slow Sunday Stitching.
