Looking at our calendar, I realized that we’ll be traveling more than usual between now and the end of the year. I like having a small project to carry around with me to keep my hands busy. Since my sewing machine is getting its yearly checkup anyway, I thought it might be a good idea to hand quilt my Cosmic Jewels quilt. (Its new name is “Shapphire Star.”) Just some simple quilting, nothing fancy, no marking.
I dug through my stash and found a large piece of blue and white fabric for the backing. Then I dug through my batting stash and found two pieces of cotton batting that I could baste together. Next I found some white hand quilting thread — why do I have that? I can’t remember! But, I’m thrilled because now I’ve done another quilt completely from my stash! More stuff that I’m using up. DH should be so proud of me. (He is, BTW. He’s been bragging about me non-stop. Isn’t he sweet?)
