Marching Onward

I've been able to get a little bit of time in my sewing space (which also happens to be the guest bedroom, which also happens to be where I usually end up at night when there's a sick kiddo in the house, which is why I've spent the last several nights there with a hacking coughing Bailey....anywho). I have almost everything cut out for another bag - this may become a problem - and I'm working on morphing my big pile of vintage sheets into little piles of vintage sheet fat quarters for this swap.

I've also pin basted two quilts. I love how the little pins are like an army marching across the fabric - taking very seriously their sworn duty to hold my quilt sandwich together without puckering!

This one is made from charm squares that I received recently in a swap with the Portland Modern Quilt Guild. More info when I show the whole thing once it's finished!

And this one is my Retro Wave quilt which I think will be my first attempt at all over free-motion stippling. I hope I don't chicken out from the fear of screwing it all up.

March on little safety pins - march on!


  1. Wow, you have been busy! These both look great, I can't wait to see your quilting, I'm in awe. I'm having my tea with my little quilted cozy right now and wishing I had the guts to try free motion. Another bag too, wow, I guess this rain is good for something, huh? I joined the sheet swap too, though I haven't been out to look for any more yet. Sorry about your sick little one, my 3 yr old woke with a runny nose today, ugh. See you Saturday at MD? I'll bring a few vs fat quarters if you want to swap...

  2. Wow you are fast! Don't fear free motion, it's fun!
