A Little of This, A Little of That

I’ve been working on a variety of things these last two weeks.  I got the Graduation Quilt layered up and I’m ready to start the quilting this coming week.  I got the Bug Quilt (you remember this one)

completely quilted.  Now it needs binding.

I started two NEW things.  One for the youngest grandkid and one for donation.

I have always loved string quilts, but I’ve never made one.  I decided it was time to remedy that.  So working out of my scrap bin, I started the donation quilt with 9″ blocks.  And because one new project is not enough! :-D,  I started another one with 5″ blocks.  The smaller size is for a new diaper changing pad for Calvin.  He’s now 6 months old and is getting longer than the changing pads I made for him as a newborn.  I have many, many blocks left to complete for the donation quilt, but Calvin’s pad is together and in the process of being quilted.


This is it pre quilting.  I think I like the process, even though it is not the fastest piecing to do.  So I will continue on with the donation quilt! 😀

In anticipation of the Cain Park Art Festival, I need to get my updated/reworked website launched.  The reason that wasn’t done MONTHS ago is that I (yes, me!) was supposed to add content pages.  And I have not.  But now there’s a deadline.  So I started (it will be a slow process) with taking pictures of my blank note cards.  They are 4″ x 5″ cards.  Just big enough to say, “thinking of you” but not so big you are pressured by the empty space to write much of anything more!

Then I looked at what I have in stock for my coaster sets.  These are 5″ x 6″ mini quilts that some people call Mug Rugs.  I do not have a very large stock so I worked on adding to my inventory.



And that, friends, is what work I have been doing these last two weeks.  Have a good weekend!
