Here is what it looked like the other day when I had to take it off the QSnaps to adjust to the stitching area. I did finish off the corner with stitching.
And here is what it looks like right now, with the rest of the stitches put in, and Im onto a new page.
I received the pattern from Mouse (UK) and I get to send it to Judith in Germany. Here is the list of stitchers that have/will be participating in the Traveling Pattern
I stitched with DMC on 32ct scrap of linen I had here. Not sure how Im going to finish.
Here is my updated progress of Cabin -- appx 3300 stitches since 12 days ago!!
And I had to take it off the QSnaps to move as I REACHED the end of the row!!! WOOT WOOT!!
So, here is what 20 of 30 pages look like! (Please excuse the wrinkles and the fact it looks not straight -- it is *both actually, LOL*)
Its called "Snapshots" from Atkinson Designs book Happy Hour. I used 12 fat quarter (one of the FQ was less then 18" & then I needed to substitute another color) to make this lap size quilt. I did a 6 X 6 row lay out. The blocks are 9" square. TURNED OUT AWESOME!!
As for the backing and bind, its just a basic black with some flecking. As for the quilting I just did a 1/4" stitch from the ditch on both sides of the seams.
Hi, remember me?! Im sure most of you dont..LOL Well, as you can see, I have gone alittle quiet on this blogging. Its not that I dont have anything to share, its just that it seems my time is spent more on/at Facebook.
I recently did join a Lizzie*Kate Round Robin, and just sent my first installment off to the next person. The RR I just finished, belongs to Vickie.
Here is my contribution to the RR --
Here is a previous of Cabin, what is looked like at the last post So, here it as of today -- only 11ish pages to go!
I quickly turned off and unplugged the lamp. I found a burn mark on the base of the bulb.
Thank God I was right there with the light on, and caught it in time, or I dont want to think of what would have happen. Counting my blessings.
Here are some pictures of the bulb. I had phoned contacted Daylight to let them know of this happening. Was kinda shocked that they didnt want to take my info at first, till I asked if I could leave it with them. The rep did take my name, location & phone number. I also did send an email to the company with info of what happen, and the pictures of the bulb. My brother who is a Fire chief has already asked for the bulb if the company does not wish to have the bulb. He would share it with the fire investigation unit, he is involved with.
Looking at the pattern, Im like a few stitches away from having a complete Cabin :)
Also -- since tomorrow is National Quilt Day, and I have to work, and since tonight was Friday Night Sew in ... I got busy!
The fat quarters & sashing fabric... before the iron & cut
Did some serious cutting here.
BREAK TIME -- as you can see, apple & the Pepsi Max were enjoyed....LOL
Then it was on to cutting the sashing & the triangles
The pile of scraps. Love piles like this! (as long as they are not big enough to hoard for another project..LOL)
Ironing, and ironing, and ironing.....
From Row 1 to Row 10 in the pile.
And since I didn't post a before this update, update. You get to see an almost finished page!! Yep, just have about 10 stitches to finish up this page, but with the additional stitching, Im way beyond having a page done.
Two weeks ago - on Christmas, I had the sudden urge to stitch! So, I got out Cabin, and here is my progress up to now... (this stitching round.. I started about half way up on the stitching on the page)
So, here is my last finish of 2011. Aubrey's quilt- pattern; from Moda Bake Shop "A Sweet Baby Quilt". Front fabric line (charm packs) - Amelia by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics. Quilting - 1/2" from the seams. LOVE the results!
