|My Halloween string quilt made long ago.|
So I've been battling the crud since last Friday and it has had me wiped for the last week. I managed yesterday to put up some decorations and do some needed shopping. I am feeling a whole lot better today, but all my sewing has been derailed. I am now behind on some of my swaps, so I got back in the saddle this afternoon.
My DS Quilts Doll quilt flickr swap has to be mailed by Friday.
I have had the center of the top done for a month. I had planned to complete it last weekend. I kind of battled with this quilt. I felt pushed by the comments of others to change what I had planned to do. When I had finished the above I hated it and put it aside for a while. A couple of weeks ago I came up with a solution. So today I got out the wax paper and pencil and paper pieced my favorite stars.
I really like it now!
I will back it with another DS Quilts print, machine quilt it (any ideas?) and bind it in the tiny dark blue and red print. I hope to finish it tomorrow.
BTW I will mail another swap package tomorrow I managed to finish last Sunday. This is for a partner very far away and I included some goodies.
