Balancing…

With a job having started up, I’m needing to find a new balance to find time for sewing. All day, every day isn’t possible anymore and boy do I miss it. I’m just going to have to get used to a slower pace of progress on things.

Just have to bind this and it’s all done!

And I’m popping these in the mail for the Spare Change Swap. Can’t wait to see what I get back!

Spare Change Squares

I’ve decided to call it the Land & Sea Quilt because it’s got lots of things from land (flowers, birdies) and sea (mermaids and erm…giant squid!) in it. Couldn’t think of a better name, so I settled on that.

It is BIG. 88″ x 100″. Queen sized for sure and the biggest quilt I’ve made.

I think that the Alexander Henry birds pop oddly in this next photo of the back, but in person, I really like the choice. Plus I was out of white fabric and determined not to go buy any!

Land & Sea Quilt - Back

And just a couple more photos because my sister Cate (who the quilt is for! Happy housewarming!) loaned me her killer fancy camera and now I want it. It takes photos that are so much better than the ones my camera takes.

Land & Sea Quilt - Binding

So close to finished! Should post completed pics tomorrow…

And on to the next! The steady stream of friends having babies continues… next up, a boy!

Simple squares looking a bit messy on my design wall.

A quilting marathon later, all that’s left is the binding!

I'm excited about this one.

This will be my very first patterned binding. I’m not sure why. Somehow I’ve just never done one before!

The next quilt top.

Just finished the next quilt top. It’s the only WIP I have going. I’ve come to realize that I’m not a quilter who gets loads of things going at once. For the most part I just make one quilt at a time, from start to finish. Am I weird? From reading other people’s blogs I feel like I am!

My New Quilt Top!

This one’s going to be queen sized. I got to pull out all of my favorite fabrics and mix and match to make loads of blocks with them. I love each block individually!

I’m excited to get to the quilting of this… off to start the back…
