I used to have dreams like this nearly every semester in college. I'd dream that I was registered for a class and forgot to go all semester or I couldn't find my schedule or log into the computer. Sewing Summit is just over a week away. I'm excited, but just a bit nervous obviously.
For sewing news, I finished this quilt this morning after dropping the kiddos off to school. I finished sewing on the the binding and threw it straight in the washer. It is currently in the dryer as I type. I definitely had other sewing and projects I needed to be working on instead, but there is something so tempting about hurrying to finish a quilt once it's basted. I just had to get it done. I quilted this guy in one gigantic spiral. I'm very excited to share final pictures.
One evening this week I was in the mood to work on my Chicopee quilt. I really like how it's coming together. Sometimes it's nice to have a project that is simple chain piecing.
Also, I mentioned in my last post that I'm participating in a blog hop for Free Spirit. Here's the info! I'm sure there will be many fun projects posted through the hop. The hop consists of 12 weeks of sewing projects that would be great for gifts--all sewn using Free Spirit fabrics. A tutorial will be posted each Monday on the Free Spirit blog. There is also a Flickr group to share projects made from the tutorials.
