Except for a nice little nap and a bit of time in the kitchen cooking, I've spent the entire day in the Sweat Shop, being rather productive.
First things, first. The ironing board cover I made almost exactly a year ago finally wore out.
So I made a new cover to replace it.
Next up was cutting and piecing borders for the red, white, and blue quilt.
I like the way it's turned out! Minick and Simpson's Flag Day Farm fabric is wonderful, and I used last year's Prairie Paisley for the floral border. And see that red, white, and blue fabric with the stars in the lower left side of the photo? That's bunting from the Flag Day Farm line. I'm not sure how I'll use it, but I couldn't resist the purchase.
Well, since it's nearly 3 a.m., I hope you'll excuse my yawns. I just couldn't go to bed until I finished the quilt top--and chatted with you a bit. Tomorrow I want to get the quilt pinned and start the quilting. This is the quilt I'll be teaching at Bearpaws & Hollyhocks in June, and the shop's open house is only a week away, so I need to get it finished for display.
Thanks for stopping in to visit!
