I've been trying my hand at making a quilt top this week. I've been following the doll-quilt sew-along at Sew, Mama, Sew. They are already quilting theirs, but I am just finishing my top! I actually did it twice. The first time, I wasn't paying attention to the pattern the blocks made, and when it was pieced, I wasn't pleased with the randomness of it.
I contacted my quilting bloggy friend Bren, and she suggested I make it again if it really bugged me. It did. So I took it apart and pieced it back together, this time in more of a pattern. Now it looks like this, and I like it better. I think I'm going to turn it around and have that bottom yellow square become the top yellow square, at Bren's suggestion.
And that's as far as I got this week. I'm hoping to get my quilt "sandwich" made tonight, all pinned together so I can try actually quilting it. Seems that most of my crafting gets done early in the week. By Thursday, we're having Bible study and then getting ready for the weekend and having a date night, so then it's just snatching time to craft as I can.
What have you been doing this week?
