A snow day and some progress a week ago….

Last week we had another snow storm.  It was much less fierce than expected, but I enjoyed a day inside.

I worked on my French Swoon quilt and here’s what I did.

  1. Tested the backing one more time for colo-fastnestand decided that it was fine (washed in warm with a piece of the white in the same wash which came out clean).
  2. Ironed the backing fabric, however, it will need piecing – actually – I will make a strip with a leftover block or two and some scraps to make the back long enough.
  3. I made the binding for the quilt.


Some other things I accomplished included

-searching for fabric scraps from this quilt (and realized I gave some away,

-organized my ufo projects for the year so they were all in a basket

-put away some fabric I had washed/some more sewing desk cleanup

-picked out a small quilt to work on and found a back for it (I’ll post it at the end of the week)

-organized some things for my EPP class on Friday


Not bad for a week’s work!
