So when I said I was excited about my Happy Mail the other day, I wasn't kidding. I have missed my machine so I got right to work on some of these new projects. And ya know, sometimes you start stitching and you just can't stop!!! So ya, between last night and this morning, I whipped up the Stars and Strips mini from the Liberty Box. Isn't it just so fun!!! So ya, a work in progress that just needs to be quilted and bound, and I even made the binding strip already, yippee!!
So I obviously needed another WIP, so I pulled out the adorable Joy in the Journey Rolie Polie fabric from my May Sew Sampler Box, and got to work on the Leaves pattern. It's all cut out now, and I am going to start sewing on this just as soon as I am done typing this post. I just think the colors are so great and perfect for a little baby born this fall ;)
And last but not least, while I was away I got a ton of hits on my Playing the Scales quilt. Looking back over the tutorial, it is getting pretty old and I thought it might be time to do an update. So of course, new Work In Progress!!! I dug through my stash and found this beautiful Fat Quarter Bundle of Dwell in the Possibility (which totally stuck out to me as it is the same fabric as the giveaway this week!!) I knew right away it would be perfect with all of it's low volume and high volume prints!! (I am saving the black FQ's for another project as I wanted the black and white to stand out in the low volume prints :)
I am thinking that for the update rather than share another tutorial do a new Free PDF Download, like the one I did for Cabin Among the Stars. It was so well received, so why not take a favorite quilt and make it easier!! Then there would be a tutorial for it as well as a pattern. And I might even do a second PDF for the Queen Size version that I have written in the comments about. What do you think, is that something that would be helpful??
I cut the quilt out yesterday and stated the strip piecing this morning so hopefully this one won't be to long of a work in progress ;)
Can I just say, it is sew nice to be back on my machine just stitching away!!! What are you Working Away on???
I hope you are all have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
