Didn't sew much but did a lot of quilting this past week.
Field of Poppies got its first border. I am so happy that the corners are even in the sense that the light are next to the dark all the way around. I love how it looks too.
Plenty of teal, aqua and turquoise in this one.
Then I attached the quilting foot back on the machine and quilted my heart out. (not even, haha!)
The car seat mats were first to go. These will grace a co-worker's van. She asked for dark grey or black with yellow.
Some simple free hand design. To me, they are free motion practice pieces and I had a lot of fun with it. You can see my quilting on this picture. I used a navy blue thread as I couldn't see the black thread in my dark basement.
This is the back. Not sure what happened with the lighting here as it is actually a white piece of fabric. I might add some quilting in the black border ... maybe not.
They are ready for Slow Sunday Stitching as the binding is already attached.
Now that the navy blue thread has been removed from the machine, I can continue on this one. Only have a few more "petals" to do. I don't know what I will quilt in the green border so it might have to rest for a bit while I decide what I want.
And then I can start on the Ohio Star mini quilt, a.k.a. the Cécile's Star Quilt.
I know how or what to quilt on this one. What is stopping me is the backing. I have to look for something pretty.
And then, I'll switch foot on the machine again because I miss piecing. :^( Field of Poppies needs a second green border ... but that's for another post.
So far, we are surviving the empty shelves syndrome at the stores. None of us are coughing or have a fever. So far, so good.
At work, the Centre is closed. I am at home with my workload, working on my old computer in the basement. (Wish I had a laptop so I could move outside. Sigh.) I still have to work my eight hours and report daily. I don't know how long this will last because there is just so much I can do without my office and co-workers bringing in requests, data, papers, problems, shopping lists, etc.
Hopefully the sun will stick around. It's so nice to feel its energy again.
Enjoy your stash. There's no need to practice social distancing with it, so cuddle up.
