Well...this is a quilting blog so this is what I've been working on in my dark, air conditioned home :)
One night last week, I needed to sew and decided to try my hand at a selvage lanyard for my work badge. It was a prototype of sorts.
My next one will be 1" wide rather than 1/2" because the slide buckles that are sold at Wal-Mart are 1" wide and since you might be able to hang a car from this and it wouldn't break, for safety reasons it really should have a quick release mechanism. I opted for one of those things with the retractable string for this one. I'll definitely make more of these.
The other thing I have been working on is two baby girl quilts. I got all the pieced strips assembled
So I've been playing with the layout
Of course, that led to sewing rows together for one of the tops
I'd like to get both tops assembled and backings made before the end of this weekend. I'd also like to win Power Ball - chances of me finishing all this before the weekend is over are about the same as winning Power Ball.
