In my Post dated 8/26/2019, I mentioned I was expecting some fabric to make tops for Fabric Cafe. It didn’t arrive until Monday about 2:30 pm, and it had three 3-yard bundles. One of the three tops needed to get to the long arm quilter ASAP.
I immediately got started on the top which was needed ASAP. Thanks to the prepared meals and a late night sew-a-thon, the completed top was in the mail by Tuesday noon.
Several of the tops I’ve made the past 2 weeks are patterns which will be released later this year in a new book of 3-yard quilts by Donna Robertson of Fabric Cafe. So I can’t show them to you, Yet. But I do think you will like them.
I was expecting a 2nd box of fabric of 4 more 3-yard bundles, one of which was another urgent finish. So while I waited I worked on another top. A second marathon sewing session and a second top was finish.
The second box arrived Wednesday afternoon. I jumped right in making the third top in 3 days. Here is the fabric. My DH really liked this fabric.
So Thursday morning two more tops were in the mail. Progress – 3 tops completed in 3 days & heading to Texas. Four more tops to make but not quite as urgent. We had run out of the prepared meals & I needed a grocery run.
Over the weekend I began working on the additional tops. But now I needed more cooking and didn’t have any more late night sewing sessions. The next top had HSTs which requires a bit longer due to the trimming required.
On Thursday, I started Top #6 using another pattern from Pretty Darn Quick – Heartland. This one also has HSTs so I took my time.
So, I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. One more top and I will have made 7 tops in less than 2 weeks.
Hope you’ve been getting some stitching done.
