Midweek Sewing Update

Did you have a nice Easter? Ours was quiet, which afforded a lot of sewing time for me. And yes, we had Belgian chocolate from Trader Joe’s. What more could you ask for?

On Sunday I sewed the borders onto my Cityscape. I’m pleased with it, but dreading (as always) the basting process and the quilting even more.


I’m going to attempt to quilt those rays in the skyline with clear thread.  And I  know the borders will be different than the main part. But that’s all I’ve decided for now.

Below is my latest Splendid Sampler block. It’s #11 for me (I think).  I’m going to sew another one today after I baste the quilt.


I also recovered my ironing board and you can see a bit of the Makower laundry fabric beneath the left of the block. I didn’t take a picture of the ironing board itself because.... it’s just an ironing board. But a cute ironing board now!

That’s it for now. Short and sweet. See you on Saturday!

Cute ironing boards should be the standard! I do love that Cityscapes project - hope my friend will bring hers to our next sew day so I can get a picture.

Oh gosh, the Cityscape finish is perfection. Cute ironing board cover. I'm so right brained! When I recovered my presser I went for that silver teflon fabric. BORING!! My ironing board is a gridded cover. super useful, but again...boring.
