I'm still here. Baby is quite comfy, thank you very much.
So I've been using the time to sew: mostly I've been working on two projects the last couple of days.
Baby's quilt may still get finished before she arrives. I decided to bind it yesterday, even though I hadn't finished the quilting. I attached the binding with machine to the front of the quilt and then by hand to the back - normally I attach binding entirely by machine, but with all the piecing and quilting already done by hand it didn't feel quite right. I still have some stars and the borders to quilt so this isn't finished yet...
And my Dear Jane quilt - something you will note that wasn't on my list of things to do before Baby. Instead it is on the list of things I'm enjoying. I pieced four blocks over the weekend...
...and then spent over 3 hours yesterday working out how to piece, and piecing, this little monster.
My mother-in-law did tell me to get a life when she came in and saw it! But in my defence, look how much fabric I used to entertain myself for 3.5 hours (if you're not familiar with Dear Jane, this block is just 4.5" square and has 43 pieces in it). Think how much fabric I could have used in 3.5 hours on a difference project - this sampler quilt is good for my bank balance! If nothing happens again tomorrow then I may prepare some DJ blocks for hand-stitching.
I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday and heading over to see what everyone else has been up to.
