WIP Marshmallow Brochette

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Yay!!  I finally figured out how to link up properly!

I've been gone for 2 weeks, so I haven't done much sewing.  I did get the sewing machine back from repair shop.  Apparently something was funky with the foot pedal.  They didn't need to order a new one, just fixed the old one, which is nice.  It's also nice it wasn't something I could have fixed myself.  I still feel stupid about that time I took my embroidery machine in for a thread clump caught in the presser plates.  

In between week long trips I managed to finish up the Marshmallow Brochette QAL.  It came together so quickly.  I think I'll make another one.  The only thing I would change is making the narrow strip in the middle a little wider so that I can do 4 rows of quilting instead of 2.
 You can see I still need to finish tacking the binding down.  I did a proper hanging sleeve since this is just a wall hanging size.  I think the center strip is too close to the right strip.  Stealing a bit of width from the right edge would balance it better.

It's all about the chairs-
There's the quilt hanging in it's new home in Hubby's home office.

Every other project is just as I left it.
