…but I’m picking up speed on the quilting front. I have three days to cross the finish line…but I better not get too cocky or this story will be a repeat of the children’s story ‘Tortoise and the Hare’ and we all know who won that race!! Not that I’m a fast mover like the Hare…and my motto has always been Slow and Steady Wins the Race!
The baby quilt is quilted and has the binding on…hopefully tonight I will stitch it down. It is a simple quilt but I LOVE the fabric. The Kit was called School Days…and no I don’t know who made it. (The girl in the Calico Horse booth at the Hemet QS didn’t know either). It sure reminds me of my childhood – the desks, chalkboards and the Maypole dancing…ah the good ol’days!
I got 12 of the little reindeer traced onto cream coloured tone on tone polka dot fabric. It is in a plastic tote for those sightseeing days when we need to travel in the truck. It’s surprising how fast stitching 20 minutes here and there adds up!! This is from the FREE Henry Glass pattern Magical Christmas which you can download from Fat Quarter Shop!!
And I have finished stitching Molly and Rylie onto my little Wool Crazy Quilt! This quilt is SO much fun to work on!
There they are…looks like we have interrupted their playtime, doesn’t it…
I think they were probably fighting over that ball…yup, they look guilty…
So I am slowly making it down to the bottom of the hill for the OPAM challenge just like the Tortoise… I think I can… I think I can…OH no~ that was the Little Engine Who Thought He Could…oops wrong story…. ;o) Well you get the idea!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!
