Work In Progress

Hey Guys!

I have been busy today! I started the day by pressing all of my pink and white squares for project quilting. Then, I made sure all of my squares were exactly 5 inches by 5 inches. Slow work but really worth it once it’s time to sew. Around 2pm I took a break and decided to cook dinner. Dinner tonight was fried chicken, salad and potato salad. On a whim, I made some cupcakes with lemon butter cream. They were sooo good! Here is a picture.

Yum!

Yum!

After cooking, I went to Whipstitch to hang out with my sewing buddies and draw a diagonal line on all of those squares. Talking and snacking sure does make the time fly!  Plus I had a friend helping me, Thanks D ;0).  Here are some pictures of the process.

Slow but worthy work for a quilter.

Squares waiting for lines

You cannot imagine how many times I drew this line!

Tomorrow, I will be sewing the quilt top up.  I have decided this quilt will be for me!  That is my work in progress for now.  For that reason I will be linking up to WIP at Freshly Pieced.  If you are visiting from there, Welcome!  I hope you take the time to look around and comment!  I love comments!

Until, next time Sew Pretty!

I am just a girl trying to be crafty. Well really a woman but my thoughts are girly. I am embarking on a journey. I hope to complete all of my goals, share and learn from others.
