If I didn't actually have anything to do all day, I might progress faster on my projects for our steampunk bedroom makeover. But, in fact, I do have quite a few other responsibilities that take away from my "fun project" time.
my quilt that will lend a bohemian feel to lighten up the steampunk a little bit. I bought a large flat sheet from the thrift store for my backing fabric. I fancied it up a bit with some scraps from the quilt top, but I'll show that when the whole quilt is completed.
I quilted it just on my regular sewing machine. I chalked parallel lines down the back then sewed these wavy overlapping lines down the back. It works for me. If the quilt top was a masterpiece then I'd probably want the quilting to be a masterpiece as well, but since the top is a fun, imperfect, made-by-me top then it's fine that that is the level of quilting on it as well.
Next up. . . binding. I hear binding is everyone's favorite part of quilting. (Not!)
The last bit of progress on the room is less a project, more "purchase with a vision":
the other one.)
So the progress progresses, though slowly. My mom is coming to visit in a month. Maybe I'll set that as my goal for completion. (If not then maybe I'll complete it by the time she leaves with her help.)
