A free motion quiltalong!

I am so excited! Just as I am trying to learn how to machine quilt, here comes A Few Scraps with a fun quiltalong to help me out! I have now made three little quilts to practice but I am still not very good at meandering. I am hoping to get some tips. Jump over there for the quiltalong and a giveaway!

This is the little quilt that I gave my daughter for her birthday. I am still much better at the straight line quilting.

A week in review

This is one of my daughter's cats, Teddy, enjoying her new kitchen sink. She has been very busy with renovations of her townhouse this summer (taking nesting to the extreme!). You can see the transformation here at her blog, Cara's Catch All.

Well, I didn't get to all the things on my goal list this week but I did pretty well. Here are my new kitchen curtains.

The dress is done, the skirt is done, I have gifts made for the shower, I made a hostess gift for my sister in law, and started another gift for my daughter. I didn't get any of the bathroom project done (although I did enlist a helper!). Now all I need to do is pack! I will be in sewing withdrawal for a week!
