I had a busy week and not a lot happened in the sewing department. I did make some progress and any progress, even if it’s a few blocks, is AWESOME!
This was my week that I have a little progress on several projects. I worked on some star blocks.
This is a UFO that I keep trying to plug away on. This is one that I’m sure is over 10 years old. I got 10 more of these stars finished. I keep telling myself to keep chugging along on this project.
I’m trying to get a few blocks done each week again. I had done that for awhile and then dropped off the bandwagon. I’m hoping to jump back on and see if I can make some progress.
I worked a bit on a project that I putting together an upcoming video together for. It required a lot of trimming…a project I adore doing.
I got a big pile of pieces finished and everything is ready to put into blocks. I only got six more blocks done though. This is likely going to be a throw-sized quilt. We’ll see. I’m making it as I go with no counting being done at all!
This is another random, improv project…my very favorite kind!
When I was thrifting I found this duvet cover. I think it will make a great backing for my quilt. This is my Oregon or Bust quilt. Well between finding the duvet cover and having about six blog readers contact me wondering if I had moved this quilt back into the UFO pile, I decided I better work on it a bit.
I ended up getting eight blocks finished…These are fun blocks…scrappy and made from recycled shirts! My favorite.
The last installment of my Picadilly Circus quilt went live yesterday. If you didn’t catch it then, you can check it out now. You can hit the play button and watch it here or you can go HERE on Youtube, save it and watch it later on your television or device.
I have gotten an overwhelmingly WONDERFUL response from the Sew Along Video series. I’m just thrilled. Thanks to you all for showing me such great support. I so appreciate it. If you missed video #1, you can find it HERE. If you missed video #2, you can find it HERE.
If you missed the Sew Along, for Picadilly Circus, this quilt, you can find that HERE.
I putzed a big with this…I’m not quite ready to tell you what I’m up to. For now, I’ll do this teaser and just share the picture. I hope there will be more with this project to come. I’m playing and don’t have a completely formulated plan.
Speaking of playing…A blog reader sent me a package with some Kaffe prints. I was VERY smiley after opening the package. Some people get all giddy over a fat quarter bundle…me it’s a bag of scraps. Crazy I know.
I have no idea what I’m going to do with them. I hope I hit on something fun. I’m leaving them out on my sewing room island. I’ve found that if I leave them out, sometimes I come up with something just because the scraps stay in my mind.
That’s all the news for now from my sewing room…I plan to do more of the same things next week. I do have a quilt that I’d love to get through the long arm. Hmm. I need to come up with a backing first. There is always something to do.
