My friends called me an over achiever because I managed to finish up lots of projects that were in the works. I also got a good head start on several new projects.
The western quilt top was finished Friday night just in time to show it off at the wedding! Whew! I take it to the quilter tomorrow and the bride and groom will get it in a couple weeks after hand sewing is finished.
I'm calling this a WIP for today since I did sew up the binding and wind it all up ready for when it comes back from the quilter.
Next I finished up what has been dubbed by my Hubby as "Ugly Quilt". Ok, so I called it that at first too, but now I really do love it. The name has stuck however and so I say, "ugly quilts need love too!"
The entire quilt top was made with $13 of fabric from the clearance rack at the local quilt store! I also bought the backing there for another $15! Total score! It will go to the long arm quilter tomorrow too. It is all mine and I can't wait to cuddle up under all that gaudy goodness. I also completed the binding for this one today and it is happily rolled up on a empty toilet paper roll (Thanks Betty;) )
I also managed to cut all of the fabric I'm going to need to complete another quilt from the "Dare to Be Square" book by Boo Davis. I can't say enough good things about that book!
Finally, last, but not least I managed to cut out the sewing machine cozy for my crafty pal Heidi (Digital Misfit)
I've been planning this for ages and plan on making a whole set of sewing accessories in this fabric to match her bedroom.
I was going to make it very simple, but with a little encouragement from a friend (ahhh hem Megan) it will be reversible and have some fun accents.
So yes, I am an over achiever and proud of it, dammit! What a great weekend!
