I have managed to get a fair amount of sewing done this past week, though as you have seen, most of it was in the form of bee blocks. Want to see them again?
|Modern BOM for do.Good Stitches|
|Asterisk blocks for Quilting for Kids|
|"Boxed In" for Modern Blocks Bee|
I started working on my zippered pouch for the Mouthy Stitches Swap. I never sketch out a design before I begin sewing, and this is one of those times it may have been helpful to do a bit of figuring first...
This is going to be the front of the pouch. I really like it, but this sucker is going to finish to be about a 12" pouch. I've been assured that isn't too big, but it seems large to me. I had also not intended for the star to take up the entire front, but wanted it to be somewhat smaller and off-center. But I suppose that is what I get for being impulsive. Now to decide how to finish it. I had thought about a little hand-stitching, but I'm truly awful at that and am unsure what color to use. Stick with one, or continue the rainbow? Or what about just some echo-quilting around the star?
Wyatt's quilt...That's right, the kid's birthday has come and gone and still no blanket. Though he hasn't even asked about it. The top is finished, I just need to get a little kid-free time to lay it out and baste.
Hometown Road to Tennessee...not much to say really....
So there you have it. What have you been working on?
Head over to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced to see a lot of other great works in progress!
