I'm pattern testing this Sunset Strips quilt for Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics! I really love the look of this baby boy quilt without 3.5" sashing in between rows. I have a light gray Free Spirit fabric if I decide to use it... yay or nay? This quilt needs to be finished soon. I can't wait to meet the little baby it's meant for...
After seeing my crazy pile of WIPs on the couch, some friends on Instagram helped me brainstorm new, easy options. Stacey (@staceyinstitches) suggested I use a drying rack. I had one in my closet that I hardly ever use. Boom! Instant pretty organization. I have a couple of finished minis laying on there, plus Supernova blocks, my petal medallion starter, progressive bee quilt, and AMH medallion top. Muuuch better!
Mike and I are combining our artsy skills to paint a pumpkin for a work contest. I worked on the background and a couple of snowflakes so far, and he painted all the facial details. Mike's talent is amazing.The stem is supposed to be hair! "Do you want to build a snowman?" Maybe one day we can make a quilt together. Or is that wishful thinking? :D
Overall, I'm having difficulty balancing my free time between reading Dragonfly In Amber (the second book in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, and boy, is it a doozy), watching Game of Thrones with Mike, and sewing. I guess it's a good problem to have?
Linking up to WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pieced.
