A day late and a dollar short....

So it's Thursday and I'm penning my WIP Wed post.  To say that life has been a bit....hectic is putting it mildly.  Alas, it's the end of the school year and that generally heats things up, and then you throw in regular life and a few trips out of know how it goes :)

ANYWAY....I digress!


WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  Zero.

Nothing!! Whooo hooo! (This is the year of the UFO so I'm supposed to be focusing on this!

The HST Hushabye Quilt is nearing completion.  I finished quilting it (and it wasn't pleasant) and it's waiting for bindings.

Here it was before.....

Now it has borders (what a crappy picture! Sorry about that! These are a pretty celery green plaid) with straight line quilting on the top and bottom borders.

And the blocks are shadow quilted.

I do love the back on this one.  Pink Polka Dots are a fave...

And a crumpled shot.  I do love this quilt.  I did learn something.  I remember why I don't do straight line quilting much.  I love the way it looks, but it's such a tedious job.  And on this one it puckered something fierce.  I ended up cutting the border because it was so bad.  I did a large large large zig zag on the other borders because this drove me so nutso!

And there has been zero progress on anything else.  And I fear until school is out that's just how it's going to be.
