The past week my quilting has taken a backseat as I enjoyed some time with family. Son Will and granddaughter Mattie ran a 5K race last Sunday morning.
Back at home I spent a couple of mornings working in my flower beds. I have at least 10 varieties of bearded iris and am enjoying several in bloom.
Last night I finished sewing on the binding for the HST part of the “Scrappy Duo” quilts from Fons and Porter designs. You can see more about the quilts on this post.
I save Dove unscented soap slivers to mark sections on the border to help guide my FMQ of the swirl motif. Afterwards a quick wipe with a damp cloth removes the marks.
I continue on my mission to finish UFOs. This week I pulled BOM kits from Hancock Fabrics 2003 BOM. I bought them the next year on sale. The blocks are now pieced and I need to decide how I want to set them. Somewhere I have some fabric I bought years ago for possible sashing and borders.
Hope you enjoy some time sewing and quilting.
