Since my husband's knee surgery last Monday, my time has pretty much been spent helping him with his recovery. He's doing really well, but it's been a challenge for both of us. One of the ways I try to stay calm is working on my hexagon project. Here are rosettes numbers 27 and 28.
I finished this wall quilt which dates back to a workshop with Karen Combs in April 2016. All it needed was the binding and I finally decided to check it off my list. Since I wasn’t in love with it anyway, I decided to attempt a machine binding. This time I tried glue basting the corners and that did help. It’s far from perfect. I still need to figure out how wide to cut it versus how big a seam to use attaching it.
Also, to my surprise, I won Annie’s Sew30SewFUN May 2017 Challenge. I now have a very nice gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. I’m going to resist the urge to shop immediately, though, and look for something that especially tickles my fancy. Annie will be continuing the challenge another month, if you are interested in jumping aboard.
