Well, I'm here for another day (meeting tomorrow) so today was a free day! I brought everything with me to transform the hotel room into a sewing mecca! Yes, I could have spent hours in shopping malls, but lately I just want to make sure I have enough fabric and notions so that I can sew some exciting projects. There's nothing better than cutting into new fabric, sewing it together, and pressing the finished project!
The hotel's white bedspread became my impromptu design wall. I finished a few more blocks of Terry Atkinson's Lucky Stars quilt, but unfortunately, I didn't bring enough background fabric, so these are all the blocks I can work on 'till I get back home.
The desk in the room became my sewing table and my cutting board.
I made good use of the ironing board! I refused to throw anything away so sewed together some fabric leftovers and have a new stash of mini HSTs that I'll put to good use down the road. The thimble puts it all in perspective...I'm sure you can see how tiny the squares are!
The couch in the room became my quilting corner. This is "The Courageous Quilt" that I'm finishing for my sister from our Mom, Me, and Sisters Three Reunion a few weeks ago. I managed to get a fair bit done this weekend by jumping from one project to another. That way, I never get bored!
Have a peek at the quilting...it's really been a fun project to quilt. The colors just draw me in and I tend to quilt longer than I have planned to just because of the fabrics. They make me happy!
And last but not least, I decorated my hotel room for Christmas. Ok, not really, but my sewing/cutting
table became my "Christmas Project" table. I'm working on a couple of the mini-quilts from "Sew Scrappy Volume Two". Again, note the travelling thimble to show you some perspective.
So it continues to be a great day for quilting!
And before I go, I just want to remind you about the start of an exciting November Block Party brought to you by Madame Samm and a bevy of busy block quilters. It starts tomorrow so be sure to check it out !
Cheers and Hugs,
