Progress Starts with a Stitch
I haven't been spending much time in my sewing space lately. I'm slowly working on my 2018 goals. I have basted my Twilight in the Garden quilt and it is currently resting on my quilting table. I have somewhat of a quilt plan for the center of the quilt but I'm not sure how I will quilt the rest yet.
I also started working on my Tokyo Subway Quilt. I had to cut some background squares, there's 906 squares to cut. So I cut a few hundred to start. It was more than enough to piece together Block 1.
Only 24 more blocks to go!
I will enjoy picking up this project every now and again during the year. I'm hoping to have this one finished before the end of the summer. Fingers crossed!
I've also been working on making a pillow cover for a charity that my guild does every year. Every year, residents at a nursing home in Halifax each get to pick out a pillow for their room. It's a little gift for each resident. I'm hoping to have this one completed over the weekend.
I am thinking about trying out my new ruler foot for my Topaz 20 sewing machine. Would be a great practice project and I think some straight lines would look good for this.
Hopefully I'll get lots of progress done on these projects over the weekend. One can only hope!
