I finished my Chain Link top!!! I am trying to decide on how I want to quilt it. I think simple vertical/horizontal lines will do the trick. I want to keep the symmetrical vibe in tact.
Of course Marta sat in the middle of it.
Because she was so insistent I had her model it.
Very happy with the way it turned out! I think this one will go to my roommate Heidi.
I also made some good progress on Bee blocks.
This month the challenge is a 16'' block with the theme of a family board game. I chose Cranium. I have the base of the block together, I just need to do the name and details in embroidery. I think it looks pretty similar!
I also finished my We Bee Modern Too block from the Modern Blocks Book. I got to finish this on my new Sewing Table!! It came together very easily. I might have to do some of these for myself! I think they would make adorable pillows!
I also started the embroidery on Maripen's Hoop Up Swap piece. Her inspiration was Woodland Creatures.
I have all the materials and the hoop and everything for TropicalSoup's, which is based on the poem about the Owl and the Pussycat. I had never heard of it but there's some cute stuff out there. I think I will use this as the basis of my design:
I also jumped on Danny's Zippered Pouch Tutorial. I had made a Dumpling pouch a couple of weeks back for my make up but it didn't hold much. So I decided to enlarge Danny's pattern and make one for myself as my new makeup bag.
I had found this fabric at a LQS and loved the vintage look of it!
After I had made that one, my boyfriend saw it and was like man, I could use a toiletry bag.
So I told him that if he would bite the bullet and go to Jo-Ann's with me and pick out his own fabric, I would make him one as well. Here is what he came up with.
He wanted it to remind him of the crazy linings of men's suits and it is very loud and I think it works. Plus... I got to keep the leftovers. :)
I've done lots this week but will be going to Mardi Gras this weekend through the middle of next week so won't get much done till next weekend. I have a massive load of packages of bee blocks and Fugly Fabric packages that I will be sending out tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting!
