Weekend (thus far) update!

My mom and I have been SO PRODUCTIVE. I have made decisions on all of my projects I talked about on Friday. 

The Stairstep Quilt has a backing and this is it:

This picture shows the seam in it. So what. There isn't going to be a border on it either. So there.

I also got a backing for and cut the batting for the Cheery quilt. I decided to keep the roses border because the other fabric just wasn't bright enough. Here is the backing for this one:


But most importantly. I completely FINISHED the baby quilt.


The backing is red super-soft flannel and the binding is the yellow stripe that is the same as the binding and backing of this one. I stitched my initials and the year on the back in the corner. So very, very soon this will be sent off to and be enjoyed by a new little one. I am very happy with the way that this one turned out and the idea of making baby quilts for people as they start popping out babies. I'm 23, so its pretty much guaranteed that I'll know lots of people having babies for the next 15 years. Quilt win.

Mom has been cutting like a madwoman to prepare for her upcoming quilt retreat. She is working on this black and red one from Quiltmaker. Here are some of her cut stacks and fabrics:




I can't wait to see how it ends up.

So for the rest of the day, I am going to work on my snowflakes and perhaps start cutting on a new project. Perhaps. But which? We'll see how the day goes. There's always this voice in the back of my mind saying "peeeeriiiooooodiiiiiic taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaable". I'm such a chemist.

But what a feeling of accomplishment to have the baby quilt completely ready to go to its new home, and two others ready to be sent to the machine quilter! Yay! I also learned how to use the walking foot. Win.

Hope your weekends are also full of win!

    Congrats on the baby quilt finish (it looks great, and will be very much loved!), and on making those decisions that were holding you back on the others. There's no stopping you now!
