I'm Tired

I started my weekend out with the theme from the old Monday night football, but changed the words a little.
Are you ready for some sewing?? It's like a giant party! I'm gonna finish something if it kills me.

First up - Hedgehogs
Hedgehogs Baby Quilt

Hedgehog #1

Hedgehog #3

Next up - Squares
This one has been sitting for a while. I finished 12 blocks. I'm hoping to make 4 more and then get it together this week.
Squares

And the GRAND finale - I Spy
This one about did me in. I was able to piece the rows, but when it came time to put it all together, I really struggled. I tried matching seams - not good. There needs to be overlap of the triangle into the hexagon in order to get the star effect. So I had to trust my die cutting system and my sewing and just sew. It worked. I said a few prayers and then began telling myself "Use the force Luke." It worked. I'm so pleased with this top. Definitely busy, but I think some little munchkin will have fun finding all sorts of cool things.

I Spy

I Spy -Up Close

I also did some embroidery for customers, but I didn't take any pictures of those items. All in all, a VERY productive weekend. The goal for this week is get the squares together and get some machine quilting done.

Have a great week.
