Friday Night Sew In

Handmade by Heidi

This coming Friday night will find me in my studio!! I can not wait! I have spent all week ripping wallpaper, so this will be my prize! In fact, I plan the whole day to be dedicated to sewing/quilting/applique! I have plenty to do!

Saturday morning I am teaching a hand quilting class at our local quilt shop. I have a cap of 6, but I ended up with 7 ladies this time. I always give each of them a little homemade needle book with a basting needle and quilting between tucked inside. I will whip these up on Friday. I bought this gorgeous batik to make them out of. I don't buy batiks, but this will make a beautiful needle book and it looks like Spring to me!I also am in the middle of a big project that I hope to complete that night! I am well on my way!

I have blocks 3 and 4 cut for the Henrietta Whiskers quilt. I need to baste those, and I want to spend part of the afternoon with the UGRR in my lap. It will be a busy day of quilting and sewing! I will add a little planning in the mix too! I won these fat quarters from Debi's giveaway a while back. Since I get a nice discount at the LQS on the day I teach, I thought I would plan out my granddaughter's quilt and make a shopping list of what I need to complete it. Many of these fabrics will go into it. She wants a "Pink Star Quilt", so I will need to add some more contrast to this stack, along with a hot pink sashing and a nice border fabric. I'll grab the backing and batting while I'm at it! I'd like to have it done for her birthday in September.
