I would say that Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were spent making excuses about why I couldn't get anything done. Friday and Saturday I spent time finishing up a color block baby quit.
This little beauty was free motion quilted. I used some patterns from Leah Day's site: lollipop, stippling, echo shell and a few others. The vertical and horizontal lines down the center were stitched with wash away thread and were made to help stabilize the quilt . I, too, am one of those that stitches down my binding by hand. I like hand work and it allows me to cuddle with my almost finished quilt. Tuesay I washed, dried and wrapped "precious".
Sunday I made two of these little stuffies. One for the new babe and one for her big sis. I bought the pattern from Retro Mama. The main body is minki - so soft and the wings match the main square in the quilt.
