WIP Wednesday

I had some time off work last week and it was glorious! Time with the family, time to sew (thank you, preschool!), time to go to a quilt show, etc.

MADE PROGRESS ON....

Still working furiously on the Supernova quilt. There's a bundle of Castle Peeps on the line as an incentive to get the quilt-along finished. I adore that line, so I'm definitely on track. I've assemble a backing,

basted,

Basting!

and quilted Supernova!

Here is what the quilting looks like closer up:

The quilt is trimmed, and the binding is made. Just have to attach it, make a label and wash it. I realized I have to have this done by the weekend because I'll be away at a conference for work during the early part of next week.

I posted about my bee blocks already, so that's the week. 

No progress on anything else, but I am really excited to see Supernova almost done.

  10. Excellent quilting! I wish that I were better at the quilting part. I've been contemplating send my next big project to a long arm quilter as I am never satisfied with my quilting on projects larger than a mini quilt.
