Zigzag quilt


I finished the zigzag quilt for my sister’s friend three weeks ago. I am so fortunate to have had my daughter help me with the design and placement of fabrics. The zigzag design is one of my favourites. Once I got going it went together quickly but it was a slow start. My sister told me that it was a big hit at the baby shower which made me very happy.

Design Wall Monday - Pretty in Pink



My daughter is making me a quilt and she worked on it today. It is a similar pattern to one that she made a few years ago for herself. Most of the fabric came from a LQS who hosts a Christmas in July usually each year. They have bins of fabrics that you can stuff into bags and these fabrics came from ones that my daughter picked out from those bins. It is great to watch her progress and increased aptitude with quilting. I really like her design eye. She got most of the blocks done today. She is going to lay it out next and see if I want it bigger.  I am looking forward to getting to cuddle under this, hopefully soon.

Friday Night Sew In - Churn Dash and Stars

 I spent my Friday Night Sew In putting on and starting to hand sew the binding for my Churn Dash and Stars quilt. It has been a long term, work on it when I need a break from another quilt, quilt. I am happy that now it is coming to fruition.

Friday Night Sew In - Zig zag

Friday Night Sew In was spent organizing the zigzag quilt I am making for my sister’s friend. My daughter designed the quilt. I laid it out to see how much I have left to do. I did get the last rows done and now I am ready to sew it together.

Botanica Park - Friday Night Sew In



  I spent my Friday Night Sew In sewing the rows together for the middle section of my Botanica Park.


I also with the help of my daughter organized fabric for a baby quilt that my sister has asked me to make for her friend. It has been a while since I have made a baby quilt. They are always fun to make.

Rainbow - Friday Night Sew In


I have now reached the point where I can start sewing my rows together.  I laid out the quilt earlier in the month and realized I did not like the layout. I ended up changing the layout which also meant changing some of the sashing as well. I got the blocks sewn together and yesterday for Friday Night Sew In I got the sashings sewn into rows. The finish line is getting closer and that makes me happy!

Rainbow - Friday Night Sew In



I spent my Friday Night Sew In finishing up the last of my sashing for my Rainbow Irish Chain quilt and now I am able to start laying it out so I can decide where I want everything to go. 

I bought backing fabric for this last week so hopefully, by the next Friday Night Sew In I will have most of it together.
