Anyway....what little fabric interaction I had this week was confined to cutting.
Pieces for the Flowers for Nana Girl quilt, my new leader-ender project. There's 190 2.5" squares and 160 4.5 x 2.5" rectangles in that little box. Doesn't look like much, does it? I did throw one pink flower in there to make up for a rather dull yellow I couldn't live with in this grouping.
I'm still trying to bust a UFO too. My record for finishing UFOs has been poor these few months. This is the backing for the August pick, which on my list is the Strawberry Fields doll quiltalong project. I called mine Patriotic Fields. This is the backing laid out on my cutting mat before being sewn tonight.
And here is the sandwich all together. Originally I thought I would hand quilt this with fans but have decided against it given my lack of skills and the many many seams to stitch over. A new quilting plan is necessary given the deadline approaching in days! I'll probably machine quilt it in some simple way.
We have a volunteer stalk of corn in the front yard. I'm pretty sure any harvest will be a bust since it is a lone stalk and not likely to get pollinated. It's up to about 4-5 feet tall now though and has been amusing to watch! Once it is cut and dried I'll have a homegrown fall decoration :). Here's to some sewing this weekend--the wedding quilt needs major busting!
