WIP #18

It would seem I haven’t gotten much done this week, but I have. I did get my tablecloth and napkins finished, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Lots I can’t show though…

Got the Bubble quilt put together this week. I replaced a couple of colors and fixed a totally misaligned arc.  I can *not* believe no one called me out on that last week!  Took my husband to do it.  Jeesh people, can’t you help a quilter out? Forgive the wrinkles, I spritzed the blue lines and apparently didn’t lay it flat to dry. It can only look better. Though I am extremely happy with it. I suspect it will now to tucked away until after the holidays while I finish up some other things. Like shopping. Wrapping. Decorating….

It will finish at 42" square. Yes, square, even if it doesn't look it.

I’m now up to 32/36 blocks quilted from 27/36, last week. Time to get the bias binding done so it’s ready when I am, right? I did get 504 inches of stone colored Kona bias binding made for my mystery quilt.

Hate having to stop what I’m doing to make binding, but I adore having a drawer full of all the different leftovers. A square width of fabric (45″ x 45″) makes enough continuous bias binding for a queen and a baby sized quilt all in an hour’s time.  Gotta love it!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

      I went back and added the dimensions! I didn’t realize people were unsure of the size.
      It wasn’t my idea, it was Brigitte’s at farbstoff-bridge.blogspot.com My daughter and I just pulled it off. Thanks!

    I went back and looked at that arc and crap I dont see why I wasn’t screaming about it, but you would have noticed that before you got to far, I can’t wait to see this one complete!

      Crazy isn’t it? It all sewed in fine and since some point matched up with others and some didn’t I didn’t even notice it. Peter spotted it immediately. Only had to remove two seams about halfway down, leaving some of the points intact, to make the fix.
      I can’t wait, either!


  3. Huh. I just went back and took a look. Yeap, I totally missed that one.

      Thanks Tammy, now you know you have to keep your eyes on me! I had a very similar issue with the Houndstooth quilt over the summer. Husband called me out on that one, too, after I showed it off the the world…… It was a whole heck of a lot more to redo than this one.
