Taking It Easy but Still Working Away

Yup, my cold is still hanging around, though at least I can now taste food. I do wish my eyes would improve - they weep and sting. Ugh. But that hasn't held me back from getting some things done.

First up was quilting another one of Helen's Halloween quilts, though this one is a panel and has fleece for a backing.

I tried to keep the quilting more open with light custom work in the panel, and the same spider webs I used in Fright Night in the borders. Though a bit past the season, this quilt is now ready to snuggle under!

When that was done, I started playing with the white cut out pieces from the Christmas Trees wall hanging. Ah, but I had cut them out of the tree outline with no fusible on the back. No worries - an easy fix! I just traced the pieces onto the fusible, making them a wee bit bigger. The help of my Teflon pressing sheet (affiliate link)

took care of any fusible residue. The pieces just needed a clean up trimming around the fabric as a final touch. Did I think to take a picture of this? Nope - sorry.

And then I made some more pieces, the proper way, because the project I'm dreaming up needs more than the three I had. The pieces are now placed and ready for the final fuse, as shown below.

Now I'm off to do some serious edge stitching - hope I can see what I'm doing. More to show next week!

Have a great weekend quilting!
