Let’s Bee Social #243

Posted on: September 26th, 2018 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the Let’s Bee Social!

I’ve been super busy preparing batting, backing and bindings this past week….



I KEEP SAYING THIS…. This coming week I hope to have my 6 finished Dachshund Dogs rows sashed and have the borders added…. And now you can see how close I am to being ready to quilt it. The backing is such a pretty light blue wideback fabric.



Last week I showed you the Rainbow Paintbrushes…. Which I made in both sizes.

And now I have batting, backing and bindings ready to go for both!

In this post, I showed you my sewing room when I first moved into this new place. Shown in that post was another top I finished before moving here that will also need to be quilted. 

But now my sewing stuff has been relocated – down to the main level dining room – now known as the sewing studio! Yay! I love the wide open room, the hardwood floor and all the space!



These are the new Hedgehogs – my distraction from last week.
All sewed up and ready for quilting also!
Hedgehogs 38″ x 44″

  1. I love your re located sewing room, so big and bright, it must be such a pleasure to sew there. Who needs a dining room anyway? You have made so much progress this week, I’m looking forward to seeing the batch quilting stage.

  2. I love the hedge hog quilt, so cute! I see you have an Elna machine, I do too! I love mine. Happy stitching.

  3. The hedgehogs are just too adorable! (That's not too say that your other animal creations aren't adorable!) Congrats on the new sewing studio, this lovely space will definitely inspire you to make more beautiful stuff.

  4. Love all the quilts you have on-the-go! The colours just make me smile! Your new sewing space is lovely, and just off the kitchen which is handy. Have fun sewing :)!

    You new sewing location looks so open and bright! All the color from your quilts is just beautiful. You've been a busy lady lately!!

  9. I just love to look at your adorable quilts Lorna. All three of the quilts you shared this week look like a lot of fun to make. Isn't it fun to move into a new space, to plan the arrangement and have more space. It too will seem smaller soon. We always seem to fill the room. Happy sewing.
