Sewing up a Storm


Okay, so I've been sewing the last two days! I've been working on Cindy Lou Who but "doing it my way", so I hope that it will all come together.

I've only got 9 days left to make the finish line.

And while I was at it, I could not sleep one night (too many family stretching things on my mind), and I needed to make a quickie quilt for a gift. It's for a boy, which my fabric stash is slim pickins in the boy department. But I found some patriotic fabrics that would work.

There were even some 6 inch squares already cut out! hummmm..........

Anyway, I did not have quite enough so again I went plundering through the scrap pile. I found this panel, which I think I'd like to work into the backing.

I actually did not know I had this because it came in a box that another quilter gave me. Isn't it so nice to share?

Vruummmm, vruuuummmmm............

It is coming together very nicely.

Now I need to dig deeper into the stash cave and see if I can come up with some backing! Woo-hoo, a productive week ;-)
