As you know, I was traveling last week so my computer time was extremely limited. I’ve been trying to catch up on my email and blog reading in small snippets; some days I would love to have a 48 hour day!
The past few days have been extremely emotional for various reasons, so I was really happy to have a quiet Sunday all to myself. I spent the majority of the day in my sewing room (oh, how I missed my little sewing space!) and just regrouped and relaxed. I had such a nice time.
First, I made the Wanta Fanta block for Mary in our Bee Hive group. She asked for four colors – pink, green, blue and purple. I loved being able to pull all those colors from my scrap boxes.
This is a combination pieced/paper pieced block. I was able to use some of the scraps from the block to make Mary a matching pincushion. I hope she likes it!
Next, I worked on a baby quilt. I am getting to the point where I feel the need to make a real effort to use fabric I already have and not purchase more, except for backings or special request pieces. I received a small charm pack (21 pieces) from my sister and decided it would make the perfect baby quilt for our local children’s quilt group.
I paired the charm squares with pieces from a Kona Ash layer cake to make the top. There were seven prints in the charm pack, each repeated three times, so this simple layout is what I came up with. I also have donated flannel for the backing, so I hope to get this quilted up one day this week. I love quick projects – makes me feel so accomplished!
I also stitched down the binding on another lap size quilt. No pictures yet, but soon! All in all, I had a very productive day. 🙂
There are several projects on my To Do list this week. My Crush this week is just being able to spend time in my room again. I didn’t realize how much I miss it when I don’t get to sew, or how relaxing it is for me. Sewing is definitely good therapy!!
Now let’s check out all the sewing therapy you guys have been working on. 🙂
Did you see this amazing applique horse quilt that Deana is working on for her Dad? Such a great story behind this quilt.
Nancy of Joy for Grace is working on these star blocks. Star blocks are my most favorite block, and these are so different with the circle in the center. Check them out…
….and finally, Deb from New Creative State made this adorable top with Tula Pink prints. I love that the pattern name is Off Kilter.
Now it’s your turn to show off your stuff! What has you excited to be in your sewing space this week and what are you crushing on? I would love for you to share. You can link up any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:
