It was nice to be back in the sewing room after being gone for a week. There were a few minutes of "So where was I?", when I first walked in. The most pressing project was to get The First Amendment quilt prepped for packing so it can go to Trudy for quilting as that was my April One Monthly Goal. I wrote about that yesterday but didn't realize until reviewing at my last few posts that I never posted the finished First Amendment flimsy.
|The First Amendment Quilt - self designed|
Replacing the corner stars with the neutral backgrounds with the red was definitely worthwhile. I like this layout much better. The erroneous stars got used on the back.
|Backing for the First Amendment Quilt|
I like how the backing came out. Now both the top and the back have been checked for loose threads, pressed and packaged ready to go to the post office today.
The First Amendment quilt was also my UFO-2017 project for April. It's not done yet, but it definitely got moved along. It will get finished this month as it's going to be gifted at graduation. This is the last of the graduation quilts. I'm still stitching the binding to the back of the third graduation quilt, but I'm getting close to being done with those projects. What will I do then? Hmmm.
