I finished some hand-work while in the car this weekend. This pattern was a Shop Hop block, and this version of it was the demo for Bailey's quilt group. I decided to leave off the flowers from the pattern. When I got home I did some machine quilting of wavy lines close together (using the walking foot), then got brave and did free-motion on the soles of the shoes. Once again, I have weird tension things going on the back side in some sections, but my stitch length is getting a wee bit more even.
I had also started a sea-shell quilt a half a dozen years ago. This one had been about 1/2 finished and I got it done on the way home. I need to find the few that I did finish and find a way to put them together for a pillow or a beach bag. My enthusiasm for making this a full size quilt is completely gone.
I also swapped out the chartreuse beak for a yellow one and got one of the legs done. I had time to make the other one, but realized that where I had drawn it on the back was faint and somewhat wonky and I didn't have the pattern with me, nor did I trust my bird-foot-drawing-skills.
The purpose for my road trip was a family gathering of my husband's cousins. Part of the fun was taking the parts of Popsicles Momsicles I have done and having the artist sign the quilt where it was signed in the painting. I will embroider over this. It was quite enjoyable to have it spread across her living room floor with a copy of the print sitting next to it (the original is currently at a gallery in Hot Springs, Arkansas).
I have a busy week of work, so don't expect to get much quilting in until Friday. Will share with you then.
