Things have been really busy with wrapping up the school year (three weeks to go!) and getting ready for the baby (six weeks to go!). I haven't been sewing a ton, but I did manage to finish another quilt top. I've been working on this one FOREVER, so it's such a relief to get it basted.
Although pin basting on your hands and knees in your eighth month of pregnancy isn't the easiest thing. That belly gets in the way!
I did manage to get it done, though. Now I just have to baste my Carpenter's Wheel quilt, and start quilting them both. I'm going to do straight line quilting on the Carpenter's Wheel one at my mom's request, but I want to do free motion on the log cabin quilt. I have my Singer 115 set up for free motion work and it feels like it's been forever since I've used it! I can't wait to get back to it!
I also made a baby blanket for the new arrival. I planned on making two, so I have one to go. I used this tutorial...it's simple and it works really well. My kids still use the flannel blankets I made for them, even though they are really small now. One of the blankets will be orange with yellow-striped backing, and this one is a bicycle pattern! Not very girly, but too cute.
I really want to get going on FMQ, but first things first...tonight I need to make my bee block. May is nearly over and I haven't started it. It's not hard, I just need to do it. It's so hard to go and piece another block when all I want to do is baste and quilt!
