I hope many enjoyed time with family and friends for Thanksgiving. I did.
As I was preparing for the holiday break, I did make some time for sewing and quilting. I finished piecing this giant Swoon top for a church comfort quilt. I used lots of larger scraps plus one light background fabric. It will wait a few weeks to get sandwiched for quilting when my group meets before Christmas.
Then I worked on one of my UFOs. I sandwiched the red, white and blue improv star inspired by a show of “Sewing with Nancy”. I will truly miss having new shows with Nancy to teach and inspire me as she has for so many years.
All the stitching-in-the-ditch of borders and around the large center star is done so it is stabilized. Now I need to think and plan the rest of the quilting. That might wait a bit as I have an idea for a couple of Christmas gifts that I want to make.
Hope you enjoy some family time this season. However, maybe we can also enjoy a little sewing and quilting.
