So I'm stalling on studying for an exam by (finally!) updating my blog. Oops. Not my smartest move. Oh, well....it's not as though there's that much to update yet.
This is a doll quilt that is for Thing 1 to give a friend at her birthday party on Saturday. When I asked him what she liked, he said, "Girl stuff." Funny, but not terribly helpful! :) So our choices came down to a (girly) cape or a doll quilt, and he decided that she'd like the doll quilt better. I pulled out scraps and let him choose which ones to use, and then once I'd cut the squares, he arranged them the way he wanted. Now I have the squares assembled, the quilt sandwich quilted, and the binding ready. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough of the binding fabric to be able to make it as bias binding, but I think straight-grain binding will be fine for a doll quilt. So hopefully tomorrow night I can stitch it on and then probably handsew it down while watching TV. I hope.
I'm also in the midst of Stack One of boy pants, as a friend calls it. These are the lighter weight pants, and I hope to have that stack done this weekend. But that may be superseded by The Shirt #2. I have cut out a corn fabric shirt for The Husband and fused the interfacing to the necessary pieces. If I can get it done this weekend, I can sneak it into his bag for a surprise once he reaches Hawaii on Monday. :) That is my goal. Hopefully I won't have too many emergencies to interrupt my pursuit of said goal. Then I could finish the boy pants early next week, while he's gone.
I also stitched together red fleece strips for binding, and I pinned them to a new flannel blanket for Thing 1. So hopefully I can get that stitched down quickly and get the blanket into the rotation. We'll see....And then there's all the blankets to be made for the new babies at church - yikes!
