Summer Envy is complete! Including label and binding! The quilting was pretty quick – just an easy swirl. I used 6 ½ bobbins of thread and while watching 7 episodes of “When Calls the Heart” on Netflix. Season 3 is now available in Canada. And – just for the non-Canadians reading my blog who have watched this series: the Mounties (also called RCMP: Royal Canadian Mounted Police) do NOT wear their red serge outfits for normal work, only for special ceremonies.
The binding is the left-over trimmings from the back of “On Ringo Lake.” It is a perfect match! (Probably because it’s from the same fabric line! ~grin~ )
PHD in 2018 Update
On Ringo Lake and Summer Envy were both completed this week! WhooHoo!!! That makes for a total of 12 UFOs completed this year. And 2 big quilts this week! (Yes, I did complete a retreat bag, but that was started this year, so it’s not a UFO and doesn’t count towards my PHD in 2018!)
- On Ringo Lake: Used 23 yards
- Retreat bag: 1.25 yards
- Summer Envy: Used 16 yards
I went shopping yesterday … just for some med-heavy weight interfacing. I’m out and there’s a sale on. Of course, I had to check what else is in the store and ended up buying 1 ½ yd of flannel for backing and ½ yd for accent. This is for a baby quilt that I NEED to make. I hope the baby is a girl, ’cause I bought pink. If the baby turns out to be a boy, I will have to
go shopping again, uh, shop my stash!
