Sew Crafty Friday

I have continued to work on the baseball quilt this week that I first posted progress on last Saturday.

So far I have sewn a one inch navy blue border around the initial quilt squares. This morning I cut the five yards of backing fabric in half and sewed the two strips together lengthwise to make the large piece of fabric needed for the backing. It is shown in the picture as the beige/brownish fabric.

This weekend I plan to sew another border on the quilt in the same fabric as the backing, get the quilt sandwich made and start machine quilting. The binding will be the same fabric as the navy one inch border. My goal is to finish it by next weekend.

My weekend is going to be really busy. We have a family wedding that will require our presence tonight at the rehearsal dinner and tomorrow for the wedding and reception. The wedding is in a town about 1 1/2 hours away.

I need to do some house cleaning as well..... yes, I will be extremely busy!!!

Hi Debbie
I thought of you this morning when I was up early and sewing on the orange baby quilt. I wondered if you were up and doing early sewing too. I guess you were!

hope your busy weekend goes smoothly.

I admire you for getting up early to sew! You will have a busy weekend, but I know YOU will get it all done. What kind of coffee do you drink? (grin)

You're doing a great job on the quilt!
Hope you have a nice time at the rehearsal dinner, and a good drive there.
Thanks so much for the anniversary greeting over on my blog, and happy (belated) anniversary to you, too!
