Weekend in Review

I am excited to announce I got Spring Fresh basted, quilted and done!  WHOO Hoo all on Saturday. :) This Quilt is FINISHED!!  I worked on basting it in the morning, while Mr Fantastic was sleeping in...Poor guy is down for the count again, with a second bout of Bronchitis *SAD FACE*   Then in the afternoon... I did all the quilting.. and since this one is for my living room and I am getting better at machine binding,  I went ahead a did the binding on the machine :)  LOVE IT!  Quick and Easy!  Here's a sneak peek of Spring Fresh... I'll post more pictures when I can get it out in the sunshine.  Hopefully in time for the Yester-Year Linky Party *giggle*


I also finished up my March Craftsy BOM blocks... I stepped out of my box and did the strip quilting.. Not too sure if I like the technique or not, but glad I tried something new.. I couldn't get one side of my spider block to line up...oh well...life is good....   I also started watching the videos today for April.   Good thing I have a month to do April's blocks..those Hexies will be another challenge for me... *wink*

I pulled out a project hiding in the closet to try and work on for next Linky Parties... I found this Ziploc bag full of green and cream HST's that are whispering to me.. *giggle*  Don't know how long they have been in the closet, but long enough that I don't remember what I was doing with them..

I also pulled out some fabric choices for my next Farmer's Sampler quilt... but didn't get to much further than just fabric selection...


That's about it for my weekend of sewing..I think I am going to go and cuddle on the couch and watch a movie or two with Mr Fantastic.  Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend. Here's to a great week ahead. *cheers....tink*

Till Next Time...

You got a lot done this weekend! Must feel good to have a finish.. I haven't felt that for a while. lol I love to do binding on the machine, too. Takes less patience. :o) I hope your hubs feels better soon. Enjoy your movie under your new quilt!
