Well I didn't get everything on my little list finished... in all honesty I only worked on my Marcelle Medallion quilt. But I am really happy with how much work I got done on it and I cannot wait until it is finished!
This is where I started the week at. I had my center medallion done and was auditioning which fabric to use as my first border. I posted this on Instagram for some advice, and thankfully all my Intagram buddies are awesome and voted for the Pearl Bracelets because that was the one I was leaning towards.
The triangle border was the one I was most terrified of (since I haven't tackled the flying geese yet) but I did a tester row and it went together easier than I thought. I am so glad that I went to Joann's and got this ruler. It made cutting out the triangles 100% easier than if I were to have made a template.
My first border turned out a bit wonky and puckered in a couple places, but I adjusted my seam allowance and the next three turned out perfect. FYI to anyone who attempts this quilt, use a true 1/4" seam allowance when sewing the triangles.
Then on Wednesday I took a break and made this awesome backpack for William. The fabric is just too darn awesome, and I can't wait to make some pillows out of the extra I have.
I got the second border done Thursday afternoon. I love how the quilt changes and grows with each additional border that is sewn on.
Late Friday night (aka 2 in the morning), I got this border sewn on. I love the polka dots :)
This is where the project is at right now. I LOVE it!! It is so bright and awesome. I can't wait to get going on the other borders and see how it grows.
Even though I only worked on one project, I think my Selfish Sewing Week was pretty darn successful.
