Catching up...

Last week was a crazy-busy week. It was VBS at our church and the family was heavily involved from decorating - to acting in skits - to leading music - to telling the Bible Stories - to tear down.

And, to top it off, I was chosen for Jury Duty.

I didn't spend much time in the sewing dungeon.

So, yesterday, I spent the day quilting. It was so nice :) I got two quilts quilted. I used free motion meanders for both quilts which made for a very productive day.

One was for someone else, and I don't have permission to post a picture.
This is the picnic quilt I mentioned last week. I have it quilted and today I plan to get it bound and (for once) I won't be finishing it at the very last minute (just the same week) before it is gifted to a young couple just starting out on their marriage journey :)

I chose to do a fleur-de-lise meander as it isn't too feminine - and is just a fun meander to do.

It really feels good to be back in the sewing dungeon after a busy week!

How is your quilting going?

What a wonderful pattern! A gf is just learning to sew, so I'm taking my machine to her house one evening for some one on one time. I needed another pattern for a quilt for Soldiers' Angels, so I may do this in R/W/B. What is the pattern called?
