I have two finishes to report this week, courtesy of my new weight loss plan. I realized that when I'm sewing, I'm not snacking. More sewing = less snacking = pounds lost. Win-Win!!
Earlier today, I finished an itty bitty mini for the Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap. The flying geese variation blocks go way back to twiddletails' Geese in the Forest BOM in 2009. The original blocks were 6", I reduced mine to 3", and for this mini, I reduced them further to finish at 1.5"! This tiny quilt is only 8" square.
I always get nervous when it comes time to quilt these little pieces. I wanted something wavy, like the quilting on my 2009 piece.
On the back, I added folded triangles in the top corners for hanging (just insert a dowel or bamboo skewer cut to size).
The other finish this week was my T quilt. Read more about it here.
Next up: I picked up Pete's quilt today from the quilter and it's ready to bind. And our t-shirts for boot camp graduation arrived today. I'm getting so excited to see him again!
