Back to a bit of sewing...

I've been a bit absent from here, which means I've been a bit absent from the sewing room. A couple of fun trips and lots going on here!

But I did manage to finish up a binding between trips and have been able to squeeze in a little bit of sewing this week!

Quilting is done on this one and am I happy about that! The zig zag quilting was the perfect choice, but it is a slow and tedious way to quilt. Jeez...


My straight lines are far from perfect and I did learn a little lesson on this one. The slower you go, the straighter the lines. 


I made 3 big blocks to stretch out a piece that I wanted to use for the backing. I think they turned out pretty cool!


And this gray fabric with the arrows turned out to be a great binding choice!


While I was taking photos, I had to stop and smell the roses  Korean Spice Viburnum. This lovely shrub has the most beautiful scent that fills the whole yard. How I wish it would last all Summer!




Ahhh... Spring - there's nothing like it!

  6. You did a lovely job with your straight-line quilting. It suits this piece. Wish I could smell that bush because I've heard, and read in books, that the scent is great. I'm a huge fan of lilacs for the same reason - big sniffs.
