Slow Sewing Week

Didn't get a whole lot of sewing done this week.  Sometimes "life" takes up a lot of time.  I did manage to finish the top for my H2H 2012 quilt (more here) and also pieced the back this week.  I was planning to sandwich and baste it but the batting I have isn't wide enough.  Guess I'll be going to the fabric store this weekend!  Actually, on second thought.... a fabric store is not the best place for a girl on a self-imposed fabric fast.  Maybe I'll just order it online.

This is the back I pieced for the H2H Challenge.

It goes with this top.

This weekend I'm hoping to get the above quilt at least basted, if not quilted.  I still have to figure out the binding.  That turquoise was supposed to be the binding but the quilt was a teeny bit too small so I had to use it for the border.  I'm hoping I have enough scraps left to piece a binding with the same colors that are on the front of the quilt, but we'll see.

I'm also hoping to accomplish something with these scraps.

I won't say exactly what it's going to be, but here's a pretty good hint.

I won't be linking up anywhere this week (since I don't really have a "finish"), but I'm looking forward to checking out what everyone else has done at:

Crazy Mom Quilts for  "Finish it Up Friday" 
Confessions of a Fabric Addict for "Whoop Whoop Friday"

Edited: I just found a great new blog called "Sew Many Ways."  Linking up there for "Find a Friend Friday."  If you haven't seen this yet, check it out!
