So, what do I have to show for my first week of summer? A week that had 5 doctor’s appointments, not all for me, but I had to go to them anyway? A surprise was a sewing day with from friends from DCMQG and another from the NeedleChasers Guild. They were going to make Carol’s Convertible Purse, so I said that I was in too. First I had to make my own quilted fabric. You use both the “front” and the “back”, but I considered this Kaffe Fassett print to be the front and a Riley Blake dots for the back and used the pattern as a guideline for my quilting.
I looked at the calendar and saw that I needed to start and finish my June block for heal@ do.good.stitches. We were to make quarter cabin blocks in red, white and blue. This was fun to make and fit the bill!
Next up, I have been planning for ages to make a Lickety Split bag, a pattern from Made by Rae. KT and I had picked out fabric a looong time ago, so it was high time that I made it. Here she is modeling it at the handover – pardon the poor lighting in the restaurant. Can you see the little elastic (actually a pony tail holder) and the button closure that I added? Also, I wanted to see how small it could be when folded up, especially since we live in the land where you pay for bags for any purchases so we are always carrying an extra bag. Don’t get me wrong, that is a good thing, but one that we had to adjust to! This picture also is a much better sense of the colors in the fabric
And, since it is getting close to the end of the month, I had better get going on my goal – finishing another small quilt top from the Sunkissed line The center panel is done but the side pieces are just hanging out seeing how they like being there.
Linking up with WIP Wednesday – go and see what fabulous stuff people are working on!
