Just a quickie update this week, mostly to report that the Fussy Fairytales top is finished.
I completed the borders today, which was quite the process (I think the "fussy" in the title isn't just referring to the fussy cut blocks!) but well worth the effort. The top is now temporarily residing draped over my kitchen curtain rod, in order to avoid having to re-press everything again if I were to fold it for now. I'm sure you understand! When I was draping it over, I noticed that some of the seams around the border edges are coming loose, I'm sure from handling it quite a bit in the last few steps, so I'll have to repair that before moving on. For now though, since we don't have backing or batting fabric just yet, this project will temporarily be put on hold.
Also this week I made a bee block for Bianca, my first regular size granny square block and my first time using Marmalade fabric. Let me tell you, it's lovely!
The week ahead ... since Fussy Fairytales is in a holding pattern at the moment, I'll likely get back to the 'Joy' Christmas top, or the 'Sleep' proverbial quilt (both were pictured last week), which are both small-ish and closer to being finished than any of the other projects I have in process. And I happen to have backing fabric for both of them and enough batting to go around. No excuses, right??
Blogger's Quilt Festival continues, Wednesday Oct 31 being the last day to enter and then I presume there will be nominations and voting. Lots of great prizes are up for grabs, so if you haven't entered yet you can still squeak in before the deadline! Or just browse through the entries, there are SO many great quilts! Mine is #143, if you care to check it out.
Take care all.
