There was a quilt store a block away from our motel, and another a few miles away, so I built my stash of blue fabric (my stash has a lot of 70's and 80's gray-blues, and I needed some brighter fabric for the background of a leaf quilt that is still in my mind. And, on impulse, I bought a walking foot. There may be less meandering in my quilting in the near future! I could have bought so much more, but I restrained myself.
I took my Neverending WIP project with me and finished the road portion of it in the motel room in the evenings. Only one more section to quilt and it will be a finish...
Now that I'm back home, I've been working on adding to the Quilt for a Big Girl Bed. I was going to add half-blocks to the outside edge, but after talking with my daughter about the size and style of the bed my granddaughter is going to have, I added two rows of full blocks to the sides and three to the length. Whew! There may be some wrestling with it at the sewing machine. Next up is laying out the backing with leftovers and other treasures.
So even though I was on vacation, I did get quite a bit done on my projects.
I'm linking up today with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
Check back tomorrow, and I'll have another Throwback Thursday project to share.
