Awesome August sorta turned into Argh August. Just life stuff has me a bit off. I planned on going to the PMQG August meeting and being all social and seeing My People, but life had other plans.
So be it.
I also had plans to make my A is for Alex work into pillows but he insisted on a quilt. Can’t turn down that request!
So I spent my time lurking on Instagram and online, watching the PMQG Meet Up from my sewing machine and iPad. As of last night, I got it pieced, quilted and 1/2 of the binding on. I filled a lot of it in with coordinating wonky stars that was the BOM for PMQG in July….it is just so easy to just go with a pattern I was already in the zone with and it ended up working great for this quilt.
I accidentally sliced the binding at 2 inches instead of giving myself that extra quarter inch. So….I’ll be using pins and Hulk like finger strength to hand bind the back this week.
Makes for really tight corners!
I have a bit leftover that I’ll use up in another quilt I have pieced and ready to baste….if I don’t go too crazy sewing this on!
Short but sweet post. Getting back into the swing of things. Hoping to hit the September PMQG with a bit less “argh” and more “social butterfly.”
