A Slow Start But...

Friday night's efforts may have been pretty unspectacular but I think I more than made up for it on Saturday and Sunday.

I am very pleased to say my aims for the weekend were all achieved.

I went to the shop for the backing fabric for Ganny's quilt at 4.30pm on Saturday (a little late but who's counting)


Not a huge lot of choice but it goes nicely I feel.  I also got the wadding too.

From all this finishing touches purchasing you've probably guessed that I finished the top of Ganny's quilt...


And a close up of a corner...


Very pleased with the overall effect.

I also finished cutting out 120 squares for one of the baby quilts.  So in the end I had a very productive sewing weekend.  Still need to sort out something to listen to whilst sewing - Morse and The Hobbit just didn't grab my attention enough.  Need to look through my audio book collection before the quilting extravaganza next weekend.

Looks like you had a very productive evening. This quilt is stunning! I like how the fabrics have a scrappy look even though the are all reds. Very nice indeed:)

Vicki...it does look like you accomplished a lot! YAY! I think that quilt is gorgeous! And, as for listening to audio books...I cannot do it when I am sewing. Apparently, I'm thinking about what I'm doing too much to concentrate on what I'm hearing.
Very sharp with the red and white.
