So Behind!!!

Thankful, not on my sewing projects… I am so behind on blogging, been a month since the last post.  I hope to get better with doing blogs.  I have been sewing few stuffs recently… Made about 4 large scale quilt, 3 small scale quilt and other sewing in amid of my large gardening project.  It is supposed to be a feastful for our family, only if we have a successful growth and harvesting.  We are doing square foot gardening (google it up if you are curious).  Anyway, one of four large scale quilt I am so happy to complete… a king size filled of Amy Bulter’s fabrics and pattern of quilt is turning twenty.  Here is a couple of pics…

Top and a photo for close up.

It is backing… used some leftovers to make strip.  I love it.  I have two ways to use that quilt.

They went to eagle mountain quilting – a professional longarm quilter to quilt it.  It just came back gorgeous, more than what was shown in picture.  It is now on my bed and I sew to bind it together at night time while Im in bed, maybe take me 15 min per segment… maybe take about 8 or 9 segments before it is fully done.

I also have other large lap quilt in machine quilt shop.  One other quilt to hand tie together – it is a school quilt, I will need to take a picture and post on this blog shortly. 

Have a nice Memorial Weekend!

I am trying to get my fabrics in order so I can easily find them.  I finally did one part, the dresser.  I have two or three totes to unpack and organize them in which I can find them quickly or to check to see if I have that fabric or not.

I did that block over a year ago at a quilting class.  I found it in my “unfinished” projects box before I had surgery.  I was trying to find anything that I can do while my recovery time.  I sew to bind it around (I did that with many other small quilts such as table runners and pan holders) before my surgery.  It was a fun to make crazy quilt.  Batik fabrics will do wonders for crazy quilt.  I will post the photo tutorial (step by step) sometimes in 2009 with some files to download.  It will make a great wall decor, table topper, pan holder or many wild ideas to do with it.
