This weekend I decided to have desert first. Instead of sewing after everything was done downstairs I chose to stitch first and do the house blessing later.
I had finished my stitchery from First Friday Freebie and wanted to get it made into a pillow. But first I had to finish the last few quilting stitches on this quilt so I could use the Janome since The Duchess is set for piecing only.
Then I had to push things aside long enough to get enough space on the cutting table to cut the binding and trim the quilt.
Binding sewn on and ready to turn and stitch in place. This is a small quilt. About 42 x 42. I call it a Nancy Quilt because Nancy showed me the block. So easy to make from 2 1/2 strips. A great leader-ender.
And here is my wee pillow. I checked in BOB (box of blocks) and found some HST's left from making this quilt and added them to the border of my pillow. It looks so nice there in the chair in the living room. Even if it does not exactly go with the color scheme of the room I still like its seasonal touch.
Perhaps I could have stuffed it a bit more but I wanted a softer pillow.
And here is my first Nancy Quilt on the back of my new to me chair.
So before leaving for work this morning I have the bed made, the dishes all washed, the house in order and supper is already cooked. We will have the final chapter of a chicken casserole from last week. I have bread in the freezer, yogurt for the rest of the week and I am making another batch of food for the darlings.
