Day 1

I spent to much of Day 1 of my self declared 4 day weekend doing household chores both at this house and the house we are tring to sell. Not fun but I got a lot done.

Once I went to the sewing room I stitched two pieces of charity batting together and got a quilt for hospice on the frame. This top was made by Betty from my guild last year at a 9 patch pizzazz workshop. She didn't like the way it was turning out so gave it to me for hospice. I rearranged a few blocks, put the borders on and there it has sat for close to a year.

It finally came to the top of my hospice quilting stack and I just quilted quick swirls on it. I am glad I was finally able to get it done.

Next I went ahead and got the binding sewn on this runner that I quilted earlier in the week. I love the glitz of the gold fabric.

I also made binding to put on another runner tomorrow and pulled out fabric, ironed and cut it to back a few runners hopefully later this weekend.

All in all a nice start to my long weekend.

Wow lots of progress for a short Day 1...what with all the chores sounds like you did...still energy to sew? Like what you did with Betty's quilt and the runner. Glitzy fabrics and the holidays just go together.
