What did you get done this weekend? ￩ ￫ x × Previous Next Blue. Next post So busy! Previous post caroline March 28, 2011 at 12:44 am | Reply Oh you know, just boarded the loft, got up at 5am to have a car-boot sale, delivered left-overs to charity shops, renovated the garden, cleaned the house, re-organised our entire closet … not much really!! Kirsty March 28, 2011 at 1:24 am | Reply I’ve been meaning to ask how you’ve been finding your Janome. I am going to buy a new machine and it is my forerunner in the selection race – I love the idea of more throat room and being a quilter-specific machine. Any chance of a post saying how you find it? P.S Love the colours in that quilt, esp the dark turquoise/cyan. Barbara March 28, 2011 at 3:27 am | Reply Love, love, love it! Nancy March 28, 2011 at 5:04 am | Reply I love to see other folks sewing space. I actually sewed most of the weekend. I got bindings on three quilts and finished piecing another one. I also found time for some liberated stars and scrap blocks. Now to figure out what to do with the stars and scrap blocks! Ashley March 28, 2011 at 7:06 am | Reply gorgeous!! (of course!) love that straight line quilting kelly March 28, 2011 at 7:42 am | Reply it looks awesome! i hung out with out of town friends this weekend, which means i cleaned my house all week, which means i haven’t sewn for about a week. i’m due for some serious sewing today! elsa March 28, 2011 at 7:55 am | Reply Love these colors and the way you quilted it is lovely! I’m really loving solids lately! mary March 28, 2011 at 7:59 am | Reply Love this quilt. I trimmed HST’s all weekend. Yikes. Now I have to finish a project so I at least have one finish for March (I do have tons of starts tho)! Yvette March 28, 2011 at 8:19 am | Reply Wow… that’s quite a lot done! Well, over the weekend, I cleaned, oiled and changed the needle on my machine! 😀 And I put away (a lot of) fabrics too. I just had to tidy up somewhat so that I can focus on my sewing, which I’m planning to work on this weekend. 😀 krystina March 28, 2011 at 8:48 am | Reply No sewing because my machine is behaving very badly. I’m thinking of getting a new Janome, would you mind telling me how you’re liking the machine? Rhonda March 28, 2011 at 9:10 am | Reply love the look of your quilt! straightline quilting is so much fun. I got a baby quilt pieced together. and I cleaned up my sewing space lol. Crystal March 28, 2011 at 10:55 am | Reply I am doing that quilting on a twin size quilt and it has taken hours!!!! Never knew it would!!! Audrie March 28, 2011 at 1:16 pm | Reply So lovely!! The pop of orange is my favourite bit. This weekend I managed to finish two baby quilt tops and one pieced back for the girl quilt. Hopefully I’ll get them quilted soon so I put the binding on while I’m on my road trip in a couple of weeks! Krista - Poppyprint March 28, 2011 at 1:28 pm | Reply That project looks fantastic!!
