November 9, 2011

Productive week! I finished my scruffily quilt (about to post separately about it), started and finished crafty apron and progressed with the following two…

Last night I began a new lap quilt. I was feeling bright and funky so this quilt is going to be 70s vintage fun! I’m already progressing well with it, it’s a simple made-up pattern and I’ll finish it with some easy machine quilting so it won’t be long!

Now, what I really need to finish is my advent calendar. I’m really pleased with my free motion quilting but I still have a bit more to complete along with the binding. I am away for a few weeks and will return in December (i.e. the big month for an advent calendar!!). Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll finish it before I go so it will need completing in the first weeks of December.

Thanks to Freshly Pieced for organizing this weekly WIP.

    I finished up an advent calender just like that earlier this year (carried over from the previous year) so this is the first year we get to use it! Love yours!
