Today, in order to keep things 'fresh,' I worked on three things and just rotated them around. I just finished four 12 hour shifts so I really didn't do much during the last week. The first one I'll share is a quilt I am making for my sister. She came back from a trip to Africa with some gifted fabric and asked me to make it into a quilt. So, here is what I have so far.
The grey fabric is flannel from a duvet cover. I asked her to provide the backing and I'd do the rest, and she wanted flannel, so she got me the duvet cover. Since I have way more than I need I thought I could use it on the front and the back. I first put this solid border around.
Then I did a lot of chain piecing.
And then I've begun attaching the next border. I'll reserve judgment, but I'm hoping that this works out well. I'm worried maybe I should have reversed the order of the borders.
Anyways, whilst I was doing this, I was also working on my two QALs. I got this week's block finished for the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL.
So far that makes eight blocks.
I also started putting together my Sparkles for the Sparkle QAL.
I'll be linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
