Weekly Progress - TV Binges

This week, I watched every episode of Downton Abbey and Sherlock.

Oh, right, quilts.

Um, thanks to the binging of DA and Sherlock, I finished off two quilts this week.

{Oh, and actually watching DA did nothing to cure me of my desire for the fabric. I even want Edith's colorway now. Oh, Edith. And watching Sherlock did nothing to cure me of my desire for Benedict Cumberbatch. Though who needs a cure for that? Yum.}

QUILTS. Um, yes. That's what this post is about.

Finished

Vera Bradley - just a sneak peek. The binding is on, and I'm busy burying the quilting tails. Full post on Friday.


Piecing

Weekly Churn Dash - a favorite pink scrap from Bad Romance. Look, it's an adorable birdie in the top left HST!

And all four of the pinks.

And I looked through my notes on last year's RSC, decided on the number of blocks I want, and made the remaining pinks. 

Mostly because I knew I needed more beige Dimples to set this one, and I need it for Cat Tails, and I need it for something else but I need to find my notes on that after I remember what THAT is, so I can put in one order. 


Finishing old projects sucks when you can't find your notes.


Almost finished piecing the top for Reverse Hearts.

And since I'm almost done with Hearts, and I finished a commissioned quilt and a baby quilt and a UFO this month... {Oh, yeah, I pieced the back for Chunky Log Cabin and I'm quilting it today. Freehand feathers within the zig-zags. I'm terrified!}

Anyway, with all those finishes, it was time to start something fun for me. This is Spin Cycle by Cluck Cluck Sew and it's wonderful. The instructions are clear, it goes together rather quickly, and the blocks are adorable. Mine is from hoarded Bonnie and Camille fabrics.


Oh, and it's prettier than the picture. These were all taken late afternoon during a snowfall, so the lighting was terrible. But the snow is pretty!


And I organized my batting - very big chunks, chunks, strips, skinny strips, and a bag of too-small bits. The skinny strips are being chopped into rag quilt size. The scraps are going to be scissored into pillow stuffing size.

But when you share the sewing room with the playroom, and you clear the floor of project boxes and batting scraps, something else begins to take over...
