Progress Report!

I am going to try to do a better job of linking/participating in linky 'parties', and will start with Lily's Fresh Sewing Day. Click the linky on the sidebar to view other participants and join in the fun!
I am so proud of myself for keeping up with the weekly assignments for Christa's Hugs N Kisses Quilt-Along! Today I completed the top, and next week we will piece the backing. I will visit my stash over the weekend to pick the backing fabrics..

And I finally got back to work on my little Amish Arrowhead Quilt. This week I quilted it with brightly colored variegated thread, cut my first ever wavy border, and made the bias binding. I should be able to finish that binding up over the weekend. These blocks went together pretty easily with that speedy method I blogged about in January. The quilting took longer than I expected however (besides the two months it took just to pick it up again!). Allover patterns by FMQ really are faster than straight line stitching, but I do like the results.

Let's see what else I can catch up with over the holiday weekend!


  1. Great quilts! Love the scalloped border.

  2. I love that Hugs and Kisses quilt -- so cute!

  3. You are doing an excellent job keeping up with your homework - I am very proud of you!
