For my first WIP Wednesday ever, I have…
Potholder for my dad’s Father’s Day present
I have to finish the binding — I was waiting for labels I ordered to arrive. :> I tried to make a solid rainbow block, but ended up not liking it too well. I think it looks okay as the back of a potholder, though… and hopefully I’ll make another potholder by Sunday. Gogo, cheerleader effect!
Full Swing quilt for my grandmother-in-law
I basted this at my mom’s this weekend and then got a couple of quilting lines down. It’s too bad I didn’t wait till Chasing Cottons posted her basting tutorial… for some reason, even though I know you’re supposed to start quilting from the center, I got it in my head that you start pin basting from one end of the quilt. Now I know better for next time! Anyway, I got tired of the painters’ tape unsticking since I was wiggling the quilt around a lot, so I tried using a crease-maker thingy that I had from when I tried bookbinding since I’ve been reading how nicely hera markers work.
