This weekend was a busy sewing weekend! As I posted on Saturday I finished up 1 quilt. I also finished a quilt top yesterday afternoon and dropped it off with the long-arm quilter after work today. Yesterday I also had some time to do Block-A-Palooza block #4 by Cherry House Quilts.
This is the first block where I deviated from the fabrics used by the designer. I only have a fat eighth bundle so I’m going to have to make substitutions along the way. I didn’t have enough of the orange swirl print so I used the Creamsicle solid that is not going to be used. I like the way it turned out.
This one was fun, and my first pinwheel. Not sure how to deal with the big bunch of fabric in the center where all the points meet, but maybe there is nothing that can be done about that.
Tonight I cut a million 2.5 inch strips for another gift and then I worked on a quilt for my nephew. For that I’m working slowly on the p.s. i quilt Postage Stamp quilt along. It has already ended but I’m still plodding along slowly. It’s really quite tedious. Lots and lots of strips to sew.
And some fun mail arrived today!
New Solids, a FQ bundle in a variety of reds:
And some other fun goodies:
1. New Alexander Henry Heath, a really nice basics addition
3. Alexander Henry Cupcakes – Impossible to resist!
Now I just need to keep up with this new fabric!
