Design Wall Monday - March 28

It was a productive weekend at Chez Krista.  Freezing rain on Thursday night meant a good reason not to leave the house until Saturday afternoon, so there was lots of time for quilting in there.  Lots of progress has been made on Winding Ways.  I should be on track to have this finished on schedule for May. Unfortunately, I'm going to miss the guild meeting for the reveal of all the crayon challenge quilts (of which this is one). But, the opportunity to go see William Shatner in person with my father trumps guild. Sorry guys :)

I put the binding on two donation quilts yesterday.  My quilting is taking over my house - I didn't want to interfere with the Winding Ways setup in the sewing room, so I dragged out my travel machine and set it up in the kitchen so I could bind and watch TV at the same time.  Who needs a kitchen table, right? 



With any luck, I'll get 2 more donation quilts bound this week, and maybe even Allietare.  It is off the longarm and sitting in the pile waiting for binding.  First of course I'll have to pick a binding fabric/colour.  I'm thinking probably the brown, if I have any of it left.

I also made a label for it. My first attempt at an embroidered label.  Not perfect, way bigger than I wanted, and it may well get replaced before I get to that point, but proof that my machine can be forced to do it.

  1. I think the label looks great. I just started embroidering my own labels also, and its fun.

  3. Nice job on the label. I must admit, I had a brief giggle thinking of you sitting at your machine saying "Curse you machine....you will do embroidery cause the box said you could!"
