I finished piecing Ashcombe #2 then I quilted it up and got it bound. That is the 9.5 yds that went out. WooHoo. I purchased 4 yds of Kona cotton so I can make the last two Ashcombes. I really need to remember NOT to do 4 quilts of the same pattern. At least the next two are from a different fabric collection. I am looking forward to sewing with something new. It will be pink still, just a darker shade of pink.
Here are the twin quilts. Just to show that there really are two of them.
After finishing the quilt I decided it was time to focus on my basket quilt top. I put in some serious time doing machine applique then I ran into some trouble. Remember all the yards and yards of bias vines I made? Apparently I really underestimated how much was needed. When I pulled out the remnant of the light green there was only a small amount left. I went back to the shop where I had purchased it and it was all gone. They couldn't even remember what line it was from. I went to 5 shops on one day and then spent an hour or so looking on line but could not find it. Yesterday I decided that since this is not a show quilt I would just find something that was similar. After searching in 3 more shops I found something that I think will work so I bought 1 yard of that. Tomorrow I will sew up yards and yards of 1/8" bias then get back to appliqueing. One of these days I will be able to get this top finished.
That about sums up my week. I had fabric come in but I had more go out. Everything I bought was bought with a project in mind. I have a quilt for hire on the machine and I need to put time in on that. I am not sure how much sewing I will get done this week. Can you believe this is the last week of February? I can't.
Hope you have a great week QFF*!
