I have not been so good at blogging the last few weeks, with Julia under the weather. I have been working on a few various projects. You can see to the left of me I did some quilting, then some more quilting on my plus quilt (Its not named yet, but I will this week pick the name, at some point before I finish it, and I have only binding left). You can see the backing material its a tad bright, its the the color on the top right of that image.
I did work on more string blocks. Below is my work in progress and on the right are the 12 finished blocks I did this round. I think I have around 30 of these blocks not that much since they only measure 6 1/2 square. The pattern in the picture is sorta how I plan to finish it. I still need plenty more blocks and I have plenty of strings to still go though.
Below is my plus quilt its finished quilting. We are trying to figure out what to bind it with. I bought this orange fabric to bind it with and after sitting it there I just don't think its right, who knows.
I pulled out my batik quilt its one of the largest I have made, I pieced it a long time back and finished making a back for it just yesterday. So now to see if we (Tanya) can figure out how to baste such a large quilt in our small house.
Rebecca has been making some taggie toys and bought a bunch of ribbon for it. Julia has helped some and ran the ribbon all around the room.
My first twister top is done. It's baby size and I made a block to piece into the back and both my wife and daughter, said oh a pillow. Nope no pillow, just a pieced block (the black twister is the block that will go on a angle on the back.
I guess Julia is serving hard time for messing with the ribbon, here she is in Toy Jail. The big bear behind her in the picture is a project Rebecca is working on for her sewing class. Its a bear that is as big or bigger then Julia.
I forgot to blog about this a few weeks ago. I found this on the table, I think Tanya is up to something.
It flew away shortly after I took the pictures, but maybe with some luck it will return one day.
