Working too hard + playing too hard = little time for sewing. I did manage to quickly put together this stacked coins baby quilt top (Heather Bailey Fresh Cut fabrics) on my day off on Veteran's Day last Wednesday.
Unfortunately, I ran out of the white fabric to put one strip across the top and one across the bottom. I made a special trip after work on Friday to get more, but managed to buy the wrong white, so it still sits and waits. And I keep hiding it from the cats.
I need to make several small handmade gifts, so I started experimenting. How cute is this little block?
Or this one?
Or, what about this one? I never knew partial seams could be so fun!
And what could possibly be cute enough to go with them? Maybe this?
Or something like this?
Add them all together + a few more and....
16" square mini quilt top!
Sis Boom Bell Bottoms! A gift I don't want to give away!
I can't believe how interested everyone has been in my library books! I finished The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, A Homemade Life, and The Help. They were all good and VERY different. I am now about halfway through The Time Traveler's Wife. What else do I currently have checked out?:
The Block Party gals are starting a new virtual quilting bee with an accompanying Flickr group, and if you participate, YOUR quilt could end up in a book! Intrigued? All the information is here at the new blog site, so go over and check it out. Oh -- and the whole thing is starting off with a giveaway! Which prize would you choose?
And before I jump into the shower to get ready for work, this is what I hope to accomplish before the end of the week: I need to sew over 400 inches of this
onto this UFO. Recognize it? Scroll up to the blog banner. I'ts the quilt top on the right.
