and she's all basted...

Pin It I would like to be proud of my (quilting) accomplishment for the weekend.

I turned on my sewing machine (first time in a month or so!)

Pieced a back.

And got my husband's Urban Lattice quilt all basted.  
It was nice to be able to bend at the waist without wanting to puke.

all basted

I quilted half a line, stopped in the middle and decided I needed a nap.

But it was a start, and definitely progress. ;)

If it make you feel any better...out of a ton of blogs that I read and of all the sewing that I see. I really love seeing this quilt!

Take care now!

Diane said...

Nice job! At least you got a little sewing done! I spent the entire weekend online trading fabric instead of sewing.

Napping - always better than feeling the need to puke....I'm just sayin'

Amber said...

It looks great Tracey! Can't wait to see it completed. Hope you get out of the yucky sickness stage soon!

Love it! It looks like an awesome quilt. Keep plugging along (if you can!).

All progress = forward progress! In my book, piecing a quilt back and basting are the least appealing tasks in the quilting process and take a LOT of motivation. Hoorah for getting back in the saddle! That urban lattice quilt is going to be downright excellent!

Quite an accomplishment! I'm glad you're feeling up to sewing again.

If it makes you feel any better - I puked from week 5 to week 21 with #1 and with week 5 to week 38 with #2 - they 'say' lots of puking is sign of a healthy baby

I really hope you got your nap. I love naps and did not even get one this weekend.

You made my morning with this post.

Karen said...

Oh, the days of naps and nausea! It soon will pass.......

This is a great quilt! Love it!

Take care....

Looks like good progress to me! It's surprisingly difficult to sew while pregnant, at least it was for me. First it was the nausea, then later I was too uncomfortable to sit at my machine.

Just take it a little bit at a time. : ) And get those naps in while you can!

Yay! Glad you're feeling better.

Napping is AWESOME. Almost as awesome as your Urban Lattice quilt. :)

This quilt is stunning! I love your version; you really made it your own! Oh, I had a couple of boy names for you too: Novak, Teague and there was a guy I went to school with named Sterling.

It is absolutely gorgeous! I love it! I have so been wanting to make one of these myself and this has totally inspired me.
