Triangles & Tea Towels


Look what is almost done! I finished piecing my Equilateral Triangle Quilt this week and spent yesterday pinning and quilting it.
 I quilted it along the seams just using my foot as my guide. I have not washed it yet because I need to sew the binding down, but I this it will shrink up nicely. I am using one of the Kelly greens for the binding--it should tie it all together nicely. For Slow Sunday Stitching, I plan on spending my evening sewing the binding on this one. Check out what everyone else is up to here:
I bought a black minky for the backing. The baby shower is Thursday, so I will get pictures and measurements when it is all complete and washed.
Administrative Assistant's Day is Wednesday, so I spent today machine appliquéing some tea towels for all of the secretaries at my three schools. I bought hand soap at Bath & Body Works during Spring Break, so I am ready with time to spare.
 Eight tea towels and coordinating hand soaps all done.
I should make a few for myself soon.
I had lots of sweet comments about my Sunflowers & Pigs top this last week. I bought a lovely green for a border and a pink for the binding. I hope to get the borders on it this week--so stay tuned!
