2 Hours to Kill

There's a lot to do before I go to my hometown, Vancouver, WA. on Thursday.
Cleaning, laundry, organizing.
I'm leaving the kids and hubby to go hang with my sisters.
The parents will stay one night until my hubby gets home from a business trip.
Gotta make sure things are in order :)

But I'm dying to get in some sewing time
before the kids get home from school today.

Project #1: six more burlap banners for Christmas neighbor gifts:


Project #2: hand sewing a binding on a quilt for a customer.

Project #3: work on this new quilt for the store
Pot o' Flowers from the book
Sugar Sack Quilts by Glenna Hailey.

(I work at a fabric store 2 days a week. This quilt will be mine in a few months after they're finished displaying it.)

I'm loving the checkerboard sashing.  These squares are tiny though.  They finish at 1"!  Agh!!!  I'm excited to be working with 30's prints.  I haven't worked with them much before, but the ones I picked out sure are happy and sweet. 

Do you do 30's?

Well, I gotta get busy!  Have a good one!

I love that checkerboard sashing too and I do enjoy the 30s fabric.

I like that checker board sash but wow 1" squares. I've never used 30's fabric but I always admire quilts that someone else has done in them. Maybe when I get back to sewing I'll try a 30's fabric quilt.
