I’m nearing completion on Segundo’s blanket full of love. Or rather, duvet cover full of love. I don’t have time to make them quilts. Not yet anyway – these are Christmas presents and I got a late start.
Segundo’s duvet cover needs the top and bottom part, the backing, and a closure. Primo’s duvet cover needs the backing and a closure. I’m going to experiment with snap tape.
Both duvet covers are made with flannel and I was finding it difficult to work with the flannel because the top layer was always stretching beyond the bottom layer, almost an inch sometimes. Then I figured out that my walking foot might help the problem and voila! Problem solved.
I figure I have about 4 hours left on Segundo’s and 3 hours left on Primo’s duvet cover. I have a meeting tonight and tomorrow night, so I think I will be up late both nights sewing.
Oh yeah. I also finished my tea towel. That’s the one from Tallgrass Prairie Studio. It’s really cute, but easy? Not really. It was quite time-consuming and it’s still not ready to give as a gift because the matching hot pad is not yet bound. Ugh. Another UFO.
