It is exactly a year that I finished the Horizon quilt top. Since then it was waiting on the shelf for further procedure. I had the backing fabrics, but no time to make the sandwich and start quilting. This week I received a bulky parcel from Cottonpatch with a delivery of my favorite wadding : Quilters Dream Cotton Natural Select. So, no more excuses and I started today piecing the backing, got the wadding out of the bag, cleaned the quilt top from loose threads and finally (after a year) made the quilt sandwich.
This is what I have on the needles : knitting an easy triangle shawl for cool days in the winter or cool nights in the summer. I am using my last – fourth – ball of Drops Kid-Silk and I hope to finish it soon. The wool is a dream, at first I had to get used to the very thin wool, but now it’s OK. I am knitting on 47″ red lace circulars from Chiaogoo.
The only project that I have finished this week was a set of four chair cushions for my friend Jane. She has redecorated her house, red is her favorite color and she wanted some cushion covers to match her new curtains and table runners.
I’ll be linking this week with Lets Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts and Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.
That is all for today, happy quilting!
