Worked on binding the heart quilt this weekend as my hand allowed me. It kept wanting to go numb and that doesn't help hold onto the needle so that I can sew the binding down. =( Did get almost half done, and will finish it up this week.
In between working on it, continuing to work on taxes and on my Bible study, I also pulled out a set of UFO blocks and worked on getting them ready to sew together. Most of the 4-patches and heart blocks were already made and had been for yrs. They were leftovers from a quilt top made back in 2003 for a group project in a quilt group that I've been a part of since 1997.
I added the white strips on two sides of the blocks to bring them up to the same 9.5" unfinished that the hearts are. I did end up making 4 more heart blocks and 3 4-patch blocks to add a 6th column so that the pattern would be symmetrical. I also added another little heart to the block that is #3 from the top in the left most column. There was just too much empty space in it for me to be happy. Without a final border this will be 54" square. I've a couple of potential fabrics pulled for a final border.
I haven't decided what I'll do with this one - keep for a future gift, sell, donate.....or?
1. It's Monday and I have a job that I like.
2. I can go to bed early tonite (hopefully!) after a night where I didn't sleep much at all.
