Friday Finish

I finally have a finish to show (and it's a long overdue one!).

My Pervalong mini is complete.
While I love the design of this quilt, I'm actually quite unhappy with it.  I used cheap fabric and you can tell, I put the borders on backwards, the quilting is horrendous and to top it all off, it is definitely not square (can't blame that one on the camera).


The back.  I wouldn't mind making another one of these the RIGHT way.  I think I would make it larger next time and possibly even use prints.  Definitely something to keep in mind.

I finished three more of my Sea of Stars blocks.

Another long overdue finish is my craft show sign.  I put the binding on it while in the car for Thanksgiving travels but decided it needed some hand quilting around the letters to make them POP.

 This is another project where I used cheap fabrics and even though you can tell (fabric glue will be needed in a couple of spots) I love it anyway!

I also managed to put the borders on the Mystery Round Robin that I'm in charge of this month...but I have decided they aren't good enough (good fabric choices, bad tension) and will be removing them and starting over this afternoon.

 And a non-sewing finish yesterday...I have baby proofed the entryway!  The bookcases are strapped to the walls, Squeak as a couple of shelves that are just for him, I got rid of more books and some decorations that we no longer had room for and created a cubby for shoes and backpacks.  This is one of my favorite areas of our house.  There will be more home improvements to come as we prepare for the Big Party!


  1. Love the pervalong quilt - fabulous color selections, too!

  2. Love your pervalong quilt, great colours! I definitely can't tell that any part is backwards.

  3. I agree with the above! The Pervalong quilt is awesome! Only you can see the mistakes! Be proud of that beauty!
