Needless to say, it's so nice to be blogging again! I don't get to spend nearly enough time here!
To celebrate the holiday I thought I would do a little patriotic sewing:
Here are my pieces for the Kaleidscope QAL spread out on the "design floor". Oh, I dream of one day having a room for all my sewing, equipped with my own design wall!
Then it was off to the sewing machine:
I followed Elizabeth's advice and did some chain-piecing. I had these sewn together in no time! Next, the pressing!
What a mess, but so worth it! I think this quilt is going to be darling!
Now, I'm just waiting patiently for the next set of instructions! I think I will take the next couple days to marvel at the fact that I'm up-to-date with a Quilt Along! Wonders never cease! (Please don't ask me about the status of my other two quilt-alongs, I don't want to talk about it)
I am trying to make a real effort to stay on top of this project because I'm donating this to the wonderful Army Baby Quilts organization.
Between the sewing, cook-outing, and playing outside this has been a really great holiday! Now, back to the grind. My husband goes back to work tomorrow, and I have a ton of laundry to do. Hope everyone had a really fun and safe 4th!
