Sewing away...

Been a long week of sewing but a happy one!
I’m in my element doing what I love :)
The binding is going on the Star quilt, slowly but surely.
I love the look of hand binding… 
it's time consuming but so worth it!

Have you tried these little clips? They're "wonder"ful! 
I seriously don't know how I did binding before without them! They are making the job so much faster and easier. 

I’ve also made time for some quilting in the last few weeks but as usual, I forgot to take pictures before delivering them :/
I did remember a pic of this little beauty… 
I LOVE a Minky backing! Perfect for snuggling.

Of course I also made time to start my version of Metro Rings
Haven’t had too much time to work on this but I couldn't resist! I've managed to get in a few sessions of chain piecing. The curves did slow me down for the first few blocks but after that I was zipping away! I’m having sew much fun that I’m already planning my next Quick Curve project!

(I just noticed that I spelled “sew” instead of “so” but I think I’ll just leave it in :)

An (almost) finish and a new start...

Getting ready to start a new quilting adventure!

I'm just about finished with this beauty... 
only needs the binding!
I'm doing the binding by hand so it'll take a bit of time but it will be well worth the effort!
 While the Star quilt was being quilted...

I was busy cutting little piles of curved pieces!
It's so cute already I just want to dive on in!!!
I'm making the new Metro Rings by Jenny Pedigo of 
Sew Kind of Wonderful.
If you don't have her ruler yet boy you are missing out!!! 

I can't believe how fast I cut this quilt out... or how fun it was! 
Usually I'm not much for the cutting part, I'd rather skip ahead to the piecing. 
This wonderful ruler is magic and it makes the work fun as you amaze yourself with cut after perfect curved cut!!!

After the binding is done on the Star quilt, I'll be piecing away... I'll let you know how it goes!

btw... schools out, grades are in and it looks like I got a 4.0 for the semester!!!
