And I managed to almost complete piecing the top of the quilt this week.
I wanted the top portion to look like Chicago style bricks and I think it is turning out very well so far.
Hopefully I will find some time to continue working on the quilt this week. I just have to finish piecing the bottom portion of the quilt top, add some applique and then I can start quilting.
I also had some great quilting finds at a flea market and some thrift stores while I was on a weekend vacation with my family in Wisconsin.
An old (and quite a bit beat up) sewing basket and a small ottoman with storage space (for sewing goodies)!
Fabric!!! I love getting fabric for less than $3.00 per yard.
Some lace for embellishing.
A cute fall quilt pattern and some iron-on adhesive.
Quilting magazines . . . including the 2 newest issues of McCall's quilting (for 29 cents a piece)! I had been searching for the August issue because I am dying to make the dresden quilt.
Now that we are settled in back at home I will get back to quilting this week! I am hoping that once the hecticness of summer dies down I will be able to get a lot more sewing done. Until next time . . .
