This weekend I got a chance to finish up the piecing for my Grandmother's Garden Hexie Project. Now to take out the papers and basting and figure out a way to applique it to the background fabric. I also finished one of my blocks for November. I have one more to go.
I had a big shopping day yesterday. I got the kit for my Dad's Queen size quilt and ordered the kit for my sister's quilt. I know I will not get them done before Christmas, but since we spent time with them before and after the wedding, I got a better idea of what they wanted. My friend Jessica closed up her quilt store so I took the opportunity to get some bargain fabric including some backing fabric to finish up some of my UFO's. Today I only got so far and then I faded out. Too much activity and not much relaxation. I still have a couple of blocks for my block swap to finish up and get in the mail this week.
I got the first quilt I pieced back from the quilter. It only took me three years to get it finished up. I need to square it up and put on the binding. I can see that I have improved a lot these last three years.
