9 weekend sewing.


I actually got quite a bit of sewing done this weekend, including starting (and finishing!) the quilting on my Arcadia lattice quilt.  I wasn't expecting to get much done considering I had to work on Saturday.

I sewed the binding on the front as well, so all that's left is the best part (the handstitching!).  I've been enjoying stitching bindings down lately, which is funny considering I used to hate sewing by hand.  I think I've been converted.

I don't anticipate having much time for sewing this week, especially after being told that I will need to complete 45 hours worth of work in 3 days.  Something tells me that sitting on the couch and stitching on the rest of the binding will be the only type of sewing, if any, that I'll feel like doing after that amount of work.  I'll try to post here this week when I can but I make no promises.  Hope you all have a great week!


  1. gorgeous quilting and colors Holly. :)

    Can't wait to see it all done!

    (Good luck with getting all the work done)

  2. hand stitching the binding is the best part.

  3. Beautiful! I love how modern your quilts look.

  4. Can you tell me the secret to enjoying handstitching? I try and avoid it at all costs.

    So does that mean you get two days off since you'll be putting in your 40 hour work week in three days?

  5. Great use of Arcadia! I actually have quite a few honey bun strips left from another project and I wondered what to do with them . . . you might have just given me some inspiration! :-)

  6. That is so beautiful--what a fantastic color combo!

  7. So pretty! Love the colors you used!

  8. I really love the simple design and the colours in this quilt Holly, it looks really modern :)
