Here is the third denim quilt top I needed to finish for Christmas gifts. Now I just need to get them quilted and bound. I have the fabric for the back so once the sewing table is cleaned off a bit I can get them basted and quilted. Then they need to get in the mail for Colorado.
Unfortunately, in order to finish the quilt I had to make a run to town to buy a new iron. My Rowenta bit the dust when I had less than an hour's sewing left to do on the quilt. I have been very dissatisfied with my Rowentas so I decided to go with a cheaper Tfal model. Seems to work pretty well.
Today I finished cutting the rest of the denim and twill that I had ready so I could get it all in the bin and out of the way as I started cleaning off the sewing table.
One of my upcoming projects is another Quilt Block Round Robin. I decided today was a good time to get my block made while the backings were being pre-washed. I decided I would send along a bag of batik scraps I got at a garage sale to be used in the blocks. In that bag were a stack of yellow squares which will be the used by each person in the blocks. I am asking for 12.5" batik house blocks and the yellow will be used for at least one window if the house. Here is my starter block. It is ready to get in the mail either tomorrow or next week.
