Weekend Wrapup

Well, my long weekend turned out great. I got a lot of quilting accomplished. I also got to do all the stuff with the kids that we had wanted to do together.

I finally decided on a pattern for my dad's quilt. I have 3 weeks to get it ready to take to the quilter. I have one block done, and only 29 left to do.

I tried out the yellow centre for the 9 patch a long. I like how it looks.

I also got my paper pieced block done for the Spring Blossoms Quilt Swap. I just need to add the borders now. The great part of the block is that everything came from my stash. I really enjoy paper piecing. It has been a few years since I have done it. I have a tea paper pieced wall hanging kit that my mom bought for me years ago that I have not yet done. I am definitely going to be getting to it soon.

I also sewed on the binding for my husband's quilt. Now I just have to hand stitch it to the back. I also got the label done for my daughter's quilt. I will show you the quilt tomorrow.
