WIP Wednesday

Wednesday again and not much blogging but plenty of sewing.

I got slightly freaked out over the weekend about how much sewing I'd set myself to finish by the end of the month - so I pulled myself together and got sewing!

In progress

Twiggy Lattice quilt
Quilt top is finished

I had a bit of a wobble when the pink border went on - the colour is a perfect match to the centres of the flowers and one of the prints but it just looked too bright.  Once the outer taupe border was on I was much happier with it, more like the pop of colour I had in mind.  However I'm rethinking the plan to bind it with the pink, I've got enough taupe so I think I'll go with that.

Hoping to get the pieced back done by the end of the week and then basted at the weekend (will need J's help).  Then on with the quilting.  My mum arrives on 5th April so that is the deadline (eeek).

Paper Pieced tote bags
One one down (well still need to finish the turning gap in the lining), two to go.

Excuse the rubbish photo of the inside - taken in a hurry and didn't realize the focus was off until I loading it onto the computer.

I think the After School ladies will like them - the others have to be finished by Wednesday as Thursday is the Wee Chap's last day.

No progress

Hope everyone else had a productive week
