Last week was rough. I was sick, which was no big deal but I just didn’t want to be around people for a few days. That can be hard when you are a full-time stay-at-home mom with two little kids home all day. On top of that I gained about 10 pounds from eating scones and tea or hot chocolate for every meal while I was feeling under the weather. I am feeling back to normal today, yay! Back to exercising, eating healthy, and getting outdoors. To celebrate, my husband helped me get a few photos of the Penny Patch quilt top all sewn up!
I am so happy with the way it’s turned out. My favorite part of the quilt by far is the little diagonal rows the penny patch blocks create. I always have a hard time visualizing how things are going to look, and the effect was such a happy surprise!
Now it’s time to decide what to use for backing and binding. I had a little bit of penny patch scraps left over, so I made a horizontal scrappy stripe for the back. I’m leaning toward Kona Ash for the rest, and either Alison Glass sunprint text in charcoal or her bike path in teal for binding. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
