A Weekend of Sewing

What a great weekend I am having......and it's not over! I am off work tomorrow as well -- YEA!
Here are a couple of things that I've worked on. First is a picture of what is (was) loaded on the quilting machine, "Betty Jo". I would give you more detail on this project, but it is a gift and shhhhh......this person may be a reader of my blog.......sew.........I cannot talk about it. The quilt is quilted and I am in the process of stitching down the binding. I'll post completed pics later.


The following is my completed quilt for the Teeny, Tiny Squares Doll Quilt Swap. It is made of two colors and the blocks are 1-inch finished. I can't say "who" will be receiving this little quilt, but I sure do hope she likes it. I am really enjoying making these miniature quilts. I believe that it is really improving my piecing skills. I will be posting more pictures of some miniatures later on........sew, stay tuned!

Love both of those quilts. Did you hand-piece the mini or did you do it by machine? It looks just SUPER!

Lucky you that you get to spend a weekend sewing! Today is not a holiday for me but I am off this morning for a dr. appt. Who knows maybe I will go ahead and take the rest of the day off and sneak in a little sewing time. Have a great week. Barbara

My goodness! Lots of half square triangles. And could they be any smaller? I think not! I am sure someone will love it!
