I'm almost done quilting the Cowboy baby quilt I'm working on. I named it "Cowboy Rodeo" because there are two different cowboy prints in it. I took a break from quilting it when I had to wind the bobbin yet again. I promise, pictures soon :-). I will have the quilting finished and the quilt ready for binding by Saturday so I can take it to Stash Pot Pie. I'm excited about the Build a Better Backside challenge. It didn't bother me as much as I thought it would.
Last night I couldn't sleep, so I worked on the pattern for Stash Pot Pie. Because my scraps were different sizes, I just cut the pieces rather than strip piecing. I got all of the little pieces cut. I sewing the first round of border to the center. I'm not sure yet what I'll applique on the center block. The pattern suggests a heart. My fabrics are wow and a pink print. The pink print has butterflies and flowers. I may do the heart or a butterfly or a flower. I'm not sure. I'll need to look at some easy appliques to decide. I plan on having the top done for Stash Pot Pie as well. It's this Saturday, so I'd better sew fast :-).
This past week I finished the 2008 Navy/White Thangles BOM I was working on. I've got them packed and ready to go home. Next time I'm up there I'm hoping to meet up with my sister at either the LQS or at Fabric Shack so she can pick out a coordinating fabric (either red or light blue) to use for the borders and accent in the center. I can't remember if i said or not, but I'm making two twin quilts out of the blocks. Each will use 6 12" of Navy/White Thangles and will have two White/Accent Color Blocks in the middle. I'm putting the blocks on point. I'll take a picture when I lay it out for Sissy to decide.
I have my February blocks for my BOM swap ready to mail. I'm dropping by the post office today to get them out. Now all the only quilty I have to get in the mail are the placemats I'm making for another swap. Those are due 2/20/09, so I'd better bump them up my to-do list.
