A day in my sewing room but first...

I spent a whole day in my sewing room yesterday! What fun...but before I could get started I cleaned up a bit and while I was putting things away I found a few UFO's!

Some I will probably never do anything with but some I really want to finish.

This is a quilt (just 36" x 48") that I made from scraps left over from a kit. It just needs a border but I keep forgetting to bring it to the quilt shop with me.

Then I have these two sashiko panels to use. I am still undecided whether to frame them one day or use them for a front panel in a tote bag.

Then I have this double stitch project from Mountain Patchwork . It is an interesting technique where you stitch your pieces together with a running stitch and then again through the seam allowance.

Here is a close up of the front and back.

Finally here is another quilt to hand quilt. I have had this top done for many years but could never decide how to quilt it. I absolutely love it so it is staying out to inspire me to get it finished!

Next time, I'll show you what I worked on yesterday after cleaning up!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Wow... your quilts are stunning. Love the last one and can't wait to see it finished.

  2. Your basket quilt definitely needs finishing. It is gorgeous Ann. I'm sure you will decide how to enhance it even more with your quilting. I look forward to seeing it finished.
