It has been a full-of-life-stuff week. There has not been as much time to do my own sewing as I would like, but I have managed to do a bit. There will be even less in the coming week as I am painting the living area, and it is going to take a lot of work. I will try to do some before and after pictures.
So, for this week...
I first worked on a customer quilt. The quilting is more visible on the back than on the front. I love this two-step design. I have done the inner design before, but adding the outer one really made it special.
This is how they look with multiples.
I also put loops in the sashing, but didn't take a picture of it. I just have the outer 3 borders to do.
I also quilted this little baby quilt...Held by my baby...not a baby anymore, but a 5'11" 12-year-old.
Then I also made this bag out of fabric I couldn't resist. I love the pinks in it. I am currently using the red bag made earlier this year, but the pink will be perfect for spring and early summer. I also plan on making a book cover with the same fabric.
This is one of my favorite bags to make. It goes together quickly, can be quilted easily, and only requires about 2/3 yard of fabric for the outside, and 1/2 yard for the inside. It doesn't have pockets, although I could add them if I wanted to. It just is a nice quick finish when I want to make something that doesn't take a lot of time.
I also finished another hot pad this week, bringing the total made to 13. I gave two of them away last night. I was glad to have them done so I could give them.
Upcoming projects: Paint all over the upstairs living area. When I have time, work on list of projects, or picnic display for the Shop Hop. I hope you have a good week, too!
Happy Sewing! (or in my case this week...Happy Painting!)
