But before I did any quilting, I did some more work on the Quilting Snowlady's outfit. I think she looks divine in her purple hat! She may be a member of the "Purple Hat Society".
Then Smitty and I decided to retire to the sewing room to do some quilting.
He knows his place in this process.
I got to work quilting one of the three quilt sandwiches I made yesterday. First up was "We're On a Roll". I started by top-stitching all the applique pieces.
And I stitched in the seams on the empty roll.
I used a variegated thread to stitch a spiral around the roll end, suggesting the layers of rolled paper.
Then I did a sort of stylized swirl to fill in the blocks around the rolls.
I used one of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine to stitch the narrow green border.
And the same stylized swirl in the outer border.
And then, I sewed on the binding.
Except for hand-stitching the binding, this one is finished!
So I'll spend the rest of my sewing time today hand-stitching the binding and attaching some kind of hanger. This quilt is 16 x 37 inches, and so I think I can just use the ring pulls from pop cans for hangers. It's going to hang in my main bathroom.
Tomorrow I'm still deciding whether to sew together the "Rose is a Rose is a Rose" wall hanging. I'm kind of dragging my feet on this one.
Are you doing any sewing today?
