Sometimes I wonder why I don't just keep moving along on a project. It's especially true when the final phase is so quick and easy. For whatever reason, a project gets tucked in a box.
Here is the packing list that was in with my kit.
Probably I was knee deep in some other project.
It's been a year (or two) since I finished all the embroidery on Over The River and Through the Woods.
I think I was a little apprehensive about cutting down the embroidery pieces and making everything fit together but that all ended up being pretty easy. I also wasn't exactly excited about making 64 flying geese but that also went easily. Just a few short sewing sessions later and ta-da. Another finish. I need to figure out backing but for now it's moved over to the quilting line-up.
On the quilting front...I quilted Nantucket. A top I finished over the winter. Somewhere online I recently saw the same quilt but they inserted little star blocks here and there in place of some of the little 9 patches. So darn cute. Wish I'd seen that before I made mine!
I love the ribbons and stars.
I set out the other day to piece some backing and get another long forgotten WIP on the long arm but I ended up not liking the backing fabric so, for now, it's back in line.
I had to take a break from WIP's and worked up 6(!) table runners from border fabric that was just taking up space. Pictures soon. I'd like to get them quilted and bound. I will saving the hand work part of the binding for when I need an easy travel project.
