Catching up and last week’s finish

Little time to sew is making me a bit cranky – or could it be this endless wet, cold spring?  Either way here’s a few things I have been up to!

I brought my M3 (Meadow Mist Mystery) Quilt to Burlington Electric Quilt Studio. I haven’t had time to photograph the quilting so here is a reminder of what the quilt looks like.

And here is a video of it being quilted on a Gamill wth a Statler Sticher.

I finished this Sashiko pillow right before I went to Pennsylvania for my niece’s graduation.  It was one of my UFO’s for the APQ Resolution.   Its not fancy but, I love it. I learned how quick it was to do Shashiko and it will become a default take along project, when I want something compact. 

April and May UFOs (a little late on April)

Finished Shasiko Pillow!
Quilted and added binding to M3 quilt (binding will make it done for my list)


-bind and label M3 Quilt

      Thanks, Emily. It was my first mystery and I loved doing it. I was surprised by that, but it used fabric I had in my stash that was longing for a quilt!

    I love the Meadow Mystery quilt; I wish I would've done that QAL. I don't have my Sashiko pillow made yet, but it's on my list!

      The pattern for the QAL is still available, and she's running another this year. You'll enjoy the shasiko. I was surprised how quickly it went; if only some of my other projects went that fast!

    Your Meadow Mystery quilt is lovely, and I like that we both just finished hand work and turned them into pillows. šŸ™‚

    Thanks, Yvonne. I have too many tops to finish right now, so pillows seem terrific. And this one did not require quilting!

      Thank you, Nancy. I look forward to having the binding sewn. Won't make it for the end of May, but very early June!

    Wow! Your MM quilt is stunning! I can't see the video though…hmm, might be blocked on Safari? The pillow is beautiful too!

    Your Meadow Mist Mystery flimsy turned out beautifully. I often worry whether or not the fabrics I pick for a mystery will work, so I haven't participated in a mystery yet. Your choice of fabrics definitely worked well.

      I used the old rule of having a focus fabric, and it worked. I used the border fabric and made my choices based on it. Generally works, and I have to say I love it.

      Thanks, Paige. It was really fun and I am so tempted to do it again. Have to check my stash and see if anything calls!
