So Much

It has been quite the week here.  I mean everything from taxes, to a death in the family, to Passover, field trips ... the list was endless.

I am exhausted.  

This may sound ridiculous, but one of the things that has kept me going is sewing.  Because we added 2 quilts to the list of things that must get done.  

And these quilts must get done.  

One is for the boys' principal who is leaving the school at the end of the school year (June 16th). 

One is for sweet E's grade 3 teacher.  E's teacher is super amazing and is getting married this summer. Also must be done for 

The principal quilt (for lack of a better name) is the postage stamp quilt that was on PS I Quilt recently.  I am already sewing up the blocks (there are 48) and the backing is done (I am having all the staff and students sign the back so am covertly getting that done too!).  I am using an American Jane Punctuation jelly roll from my stash for the quilt.

The teacher quilt (I am so original) is a pinwheel type thing called Summer Dreamin from Miss Print and Moda Bake Shop.  I am not sure what happened but I have a lot of Dream On fabric.  I mean a lot.  So I am using some of it up on this.  Using up a layer cake or two on this one.

I really am doing my best to use up my stash.  I cleaned up my sewing room last week (it took forever) and the amount of fabric I have was overwhelming.  Not that I don't love it, just that it has to be used.

And I have 2 quilts that need to make their way over to the quilters.  If I can get these other 2 done asap, it will be a record month.

But there is still all that binding ...

I'm so glad you've been able to find some solace in your quilting. Sometimes, I swear it's the only thing that keeps me sane. I'm excited to see your teacher and principal projects!!!

I'm sewing with Dream On tonight too. Funny how that works with us sometimes. I only have a charm pack of the line though. I'm hoping a trip to a thrift store will yield a vintage sheet for the back of this project. The postage stamp quilt will go together really quickly. It looks like you have the strips already subcut which honestly was the part that took the longest for me. Have fun! Happy Easter!
