I got it quilted! (and I forgot how tiring free motion quilting can be!) I was obsessed with getting it done, though now it’s just sitting while I contemplate my binding options. Still haven’t come up with a definite plan yet.
Some happy mail, including this lovely stack of Ruby by Bonnie and Camille. I’m in love with the scallop prints – that gray might be my new favorite!
Along with that, I also received the wool I was waiting for so I could start my Tova dress. I bought this lightweight wool suiting from Fabric.com, mainly based on the color and price. (I wanted to test it out before going with a more expensive option!) I need to pick up some fun colored tights this weekend…
I pulled out a couple old quilt blocks (those that never made it into a quilt!) and turned them into a couple bibs for Max. I used the bib pattern from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing for Baby, though I enlarged it just a bit.
And Max, well, he was being pretty cute admiring himself in the mirror. Now that I upgraded my phone, it’s so easy to capture it, both on camera and on video! So, in case you’d like to see a quick little video of Max with his mirror, I’ve posted it below –
