I finished six of the sailboat blocks, only to realize that I did not cut enough 3 1/2 inch squares for the boat hulls! So frustrating, I could have been finished with one of my monthly goals if I had! I only had to finish the boat hulls and attach the top white strips, hard to see on the white comforter.
Luckily I also brought the pinwheels, without counting I believe almost all of my half square triangles have been sewn together, they just needed to be ironed, dog ears snipped, and then sewn together as pinwheels. Which I did a lot of in the hotel room. I finished 16 more pinwheels, Bringing the count to 32 out of 80 finished! These are the sashings. I don't think the quilt will be finished before my step brother's baby comes., we'll see what happens! If I had thought about it, I would have done a plain sashing instead of the pinwheels, then I'd already be done!
I decided that I really like this stool to sit on while sewing! After I move to MO I am going to start looking for one. See those water bottles in the room for the guests? They cost $4 each! Needless to say, they stayed there!

This week I need to finish cutting out the pieces needed to finish those sailboat blocks. I finished snipping my rag quilt, I'll take it to the laundry mat on Saturday to wash it and I'll share the finished pictures then. I need to play with my new industrial treadles and decide which one does better FMQ so I'll know which one to keep!
What are you up to this week?
