Playing Catch Up

That’s what I will be doing today! Here is the state of my binding project:

My laundry didn’t get done either. And we had leftovers for dinner. My excuse?

Babies don’t keep!

I did manage to turn this pile:

Into this:

I think I will just quilt and bind this. The flower part was the pattern for a Small Quilt Challenge back in May so I am going to call this my May challenge quilt.

Amy at 13 Spools blog is hosting a Feather QAL. The idea is to take what you have read/learned about free motion quilting feathers and actually put it into practice. This is definitely something I need to do. I love feathers! But I need practice and this might be the kick in the pants I need. I loaded some junk fabric on the frame and I intend to use up bits of batting scraps.

I took an Angela Walters Craftsy class on Free Motion Quilting on Feathers a while back. I hope to review the lessons and start using them.

Time to start that laundry before work! Linking up with Free a Motion By the River for Linky Tuesday.
