Weekend Stitching: Zombies

As fun as vacation was, it was really nice to spend a relaxing weekend at home.  Thankfully I was able to do some laundry before we came home.  So there weren't piles of dirty clothes that had to be taken care of.  I had planned on doing some yard work, but it rained both weekend mornings and it was too hot to tackle later in the day.  So there was lots of stitching time this weekend. 

Progress was made on all my WIPs, but the biggest milestone was finishing up all the Zombie heart blocks.




I'm not in love with this project, but Drama Teen assures me it's perfect for her friend.  Now to get the blocks stitched together. That should be pretty easy, I won't have to worry about matching seams till I start sewing the rows together.  Assembly should go pretty quickly. 

With Zombies nearing completion, I should start getting the fabric ready for the next graduation quilt on the list for May 2017.

The fabric for this one needs to washed and pressed so it's ready to go when Zombies is shipped off for quilting.  The piecing is pretty simple, so it should go together pretty quickly.

  2. The zombies are so funny. With the hearts and zombie fabric, it's hard to know whether to snuggle up or run and hide. DT knows her friend, and so I'm sure you're on firm footing. The Bejeweled quilt looks as if it will be lovely.

  4. Nifty quilt waiting to be made. I'm always amazed at how creative people are. The Zombie quilt is so fun. I'm sure it will be well received. Did you try to talk DT into making it herself? My daughter started quilting because she wanted to make quilts for her high school friends. 15 years later she still is making quilts.
