Sew In Day

It was another Sew In with Maritime Modern Quilt Guild.  But first I participated in the Epic Canadian 5K race.  I'm a walker, pretending to be runner, but I achieved a personal best today -- 5K walk/jog in 46:57.  Yeah me!!!!  That's three minutes off my usual 50 minutes.

Then it was off to sew with the ladies.  It was good to finally meet Julia from Jada's Quilting Adventures.  I decided to work on a plus quilt for a commissioned baby quilt.  Once all the blocks were sewn together, I realized that it was far too big for a baby quilt.  So this evening, I cut it half and continued on.  Now to figure out how to quilt it.  Suggestions?



I'll add a border to the other half and make another baby quilt -- a gift that is long overdue.

Thanks to QJ for lending me her Hex N More ruler so I could cut my fabric for some Candy Dish Pillows



Next week is going to be an adventure -- a whole week of vacation with no plans.  I've never had a week of vacation without going somewhere.  I hope to get a lot of quilting done and hopefully a sew day with QJ.  Perhaps a trip to the Shore Shore to visit with QD.

Well time for a soak in the tub to soothe the aches muscles from all the walking/running and quilting today.

  1. Well, by cutting that "baby" quilt in half, you get two jobs taken care of and get to keep the borders! Clever Anja! I thought of that at the Sew In but didn't think to mention it! :)

  2. Congrats on the 5K!!! Doesn't matter if you are a walker, a runner, or a walker pretending to be a runner. You are lapping everyone on the couch!
    Oh, and nice quilt too...
