I spent this morning basting the Oh My Stars quilt! I’m really hoping to get it quilted this weekend. I’m massively encouraged by Rachel over at Scrapendipity Designs who is ‘hosting’ a virtual quilt along on Sunday. I’m hoping to be able to spend the day with my sewing machine. It’s been a hard week with the children, my patience is exhausted and I need a break!
If the quilting is finished on Sunday than I also have a pile of fabric that needs cutting up for a quilt. I’ve ‘signed’ up for another quilt along (really?), well I saw this post at Kelbysews about cutting into ‘precious’ fabric and I decide that now could be the time to cut into my stash of Sherbet Pips that I’ve had for almost 2 years. My girls aren’t excited by the fabric at all so I’m planning on making a quilt for Quilts for Siblings Together. In fact I thought I could make a ‘sibling’ for this gorgeous quilt:
Made by Renee at Nellie’s Niceties. I’m not suggesting that I’ll make anything quite so spectacular but I’m hoping I’ll come up with something! And I’ll have that stash of fabric moved on and off my ‘I can’t cut list’.
Hoping to get some photos taken over the weekend too of a little boy in new trousers.
