First off, my fabric for the Starburst Quilt-A-Long finally found it's way to me on Tuesday evening after a scary postal trip :) I instantly sorted my fat quarters into groups. I really love this fabric bundle Julie put together. It is just so happy and fun to sew with!!
Before I went to bed, I managed to get all my fabric cut. (And it was before midnight :) This was my number one priority since as hostess of the Quilt-A-Long it is kind of nice to keep up :)
And by last night, I had finished all of my building blocks. This weeks assignment of Half Square Triangles and Goose in the Corner blocks, and next weeks assignment of Flying Geese!! That means, next's week's tutorial will actually have new pictures, Yippee Skippee!! (Now I just need to go change out the older pictures for new ones, on the list to do :)
My next finish was finishing up all of the samples for the 2 classes I am teaching next week. It feels so good to have that taken care of because now I am way less nervous about teaching as I feel like I have a plan. In fact, I am pretty darn excited!! It's funny how seeing it makes it so much easier to explain :) (This pictures shows my samples for how to make no waste flying geese :)
My last big finish I am so excited about!! I finished my whole cloth quilting!! Wow, this took 18 bobbins to quilt and I think around 7 hours. (I tend to loose track of time when I am in the zone :) I can't wait to move onto the next step of this quilt :)
Don't you just love all of that yummy texture!! (Sorry these photo's aren't great, it is super gloomy outside and the flash just kept making a huge bright spot, le sigh)
So those are my finishes from my stitching, pressing, pinning 3 day marathon :) It has been so much fun and I am so excited to start seeing things turn into finished quilts :) I'm linking these finishes up to Amanda Jean's :)
Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!! Here's hoping mine can be as productive as the last few days. (Although, I really should take a break and clean the house ;)
