I now have all of my blocks sewn for my Lotus quilt and have started sewing them into rows. I have enjoyed how quick it is to sew together. This is my relaxing quilt after spending the weekend putting on the final touches for my quilts going into the quilt show. I handed them in last night and it ws a relief to have them all done. My son and daughter also have quilts in the show.  I cannot wait to see the show next week.

Binding Time Part 3

I am working on the binding for the last of the quilts going into the quilt show in June. Once this is done it will be time to label the quilts. I label quilts that I give away, but I don't always label ones I keep. I am happy to have this blog to be able to go back and check when I finished the quilts. My son helped me picked out the thread colour for the binding. I am happy that my family share and support my love of quilting.

Friday Night Sew-In - Lotus

I spent my Friday Night Sew-In working on some more triangles for my Lotus quilt. Now I have only three more to do and I will be able to start working on the layout. I know I need to get to finishing my quilts for the quilt show but for now I am enjoying working on this quilt.

Lotus love

I am having lots of love for Lotus. It is a good using up fabric kind of quilt.  I have reached the point now, unfortunately where I don’t need any more fabric.  I used most of the fabric from my stashto make the quilt but I did get a bit of fabric to balance out the quilt. It has been nice after working on some longer projects to work on one that comes together quickly.

I also finally got my Kaleidoscope ready and sent off to the quilter's. I am calling this the little quilt that could. I have had so many issues with this quilt most of my own doing, including sewing the backing together incorrectly which was the last piece I needed to do after having the quilt top sit around for months. I know this is one I will treasure for always.
