Island Batik Ambassador April Challenge

It’s finished! It’s finished! The April Island Batik Ambassador challenge (a baby quilt made using the AccuQuilt Ready Set GO dies) has been quilted and bound and photographed–watch for a blog post later this week. Meanwhile, check out this cool reflection from the photo shoot yesterday:

Mask Challenge

I pulled out the Derwent Inktense pencils to add some color to the Mask quilt for the Birds on a Thread art quilt group, and added all sorts of embroidery. It’s getting close to finished. I feel like there needs to be something more, but I’m not sure what.

Upping My Embroidery Game

Finished! The Daily Embroidery Challenge with Rebecca Ringquist on CreativeBug was worth the time. I feel much more confident in my embroidery, and I’m looking forward to learning more. Next, though, I’m going to practice some beading. You can get the Drawing Stitches pre-printed sampler panel here.

Island Batik Ambassador May Challenge

After taking so long to finish the quilting on the April challenge, the May project (Make It Modern with Hobbs Batting) went considerably faster. Yesterday morning, it was a pile of fabric. I put the final stitches in the binding (by hand) just before Game of Thrones last night.

Plans for This Week

I pulled out my Comfort Quilt QAL , which has been waiting to be sewn into rows for quite some time, and got some of the rows together. I’d like to finish that top. Plus, at midnight Eastern, the next Sew Let’s Quilt Along block comes out. Block Four was fun to make, even with a few tiny pieces!

  1. Hi Becca! You sure had a great week! I love that photo of the April baby quilt reflection in the lake or pond. Wow – can’t wait to read the details about that. I had a week with almost nothing accomplished. I guess I forgot about the holiday and that I was doing some traveling! Oh well – here’s to another great week for you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. We all have up weeks and down weeks, and we all need a break sometimes! It felt really good to finally finish that little quilt, though. I hope you get everything accomplished that you want to this week.

  2. What a terrific week! I am thinking of getting that embrodiery sampler for travel…of course, I should just bring my La Passacagalia which has been woefully neglected. Can’t wait to see April’s project up close…love the reflection shot. I am toying with getting better shots on mine or just going with it at the end of the week….time will tell! Have a great week.

    1. Oh my, I can’t even imagine ATTEMPTING La Passacaglia! Watching other people’s progress is about as close as I plan to get. Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate and you just have to use the pictures you’ve got, right? The wind started to pick up right after that reflection picture, so I had to make a mad dash to rescue the quilt since the tape started to fail!
