I am getting closer to finishing these two quilt tops. It is hard to keep motivated! There are some days I come home from work and I don't want to do anything. For example, last night I did not accomplish anything productive. I have to do lists that need to be taken care of! Then I couldn't sleep because I was worrying about everything that I should have done but didn't.
Today was a much better day. Look below, I finished the borders on both quilts!
They are sure long and skinny! I really like how they look so far. I was able to pin the bias chenille fabric to one border. Hopefully I can sew it on tomorrow after I finish teaching dance. (Oh yea did you know I teach dance classes once a week?)
The upper right corner and the bottom left side kind of bug me so maybe I will have to change it before any sewing is accomplished. My design originally included a monogram on the bottom right corner, but I'm not sure if I will applique anything there. I guess that will have to be for another post.
Also, someone else was being creative at my house today. After the girls came home from school Big K decided she wanted a new outfit for one of her bears. She picked out a cute fat quarter from her stash and Big L cut it apart and made a wrap dress out of it.
I taught her how to sew on snaps to hold it closed in back. It wasn't much but they had a great time working together. As a mom it is always wonderful when they are having fun.
Whenever I get the camera out this little one always wants her picture taken and this is the pose we snapped tonight! Pretty cute if you ask me.
I hope everyone else's projects are going well and if you have any advice on how to stay motivated please leave a comment. I'm always looking for helpful hints.
