Months ago, my friend Charla asked me to make a t-shirt quilt for her husband’s birthday out of some old shirts he loved. I went for a simple rectangle in a rectangle design with some scrappy strips. I got sick right around the time I was supposed to finish it but I powered thorough and completed it just in the nick of time, even if I wasn’t able to hand deliver it. It’s backed in a olive green sheet I thrifted, I sewed it around the edges and turned it instead of using binding, and labeled it.
Charla also asked me to make her a clothespin bag for use with her clothesline in her yard. After looking around online for ideas, I came up with this pattern using the raindrops print from Somersault by Erin McMorris and an unknown print from my stash, and I love it!
When Cait and I got together to make those pincushions, I was so excited to have finished something in a day that I left her house with a bunch of motivation and inspiration, something I haven’t had in a couple months.
I pulled out my Swoon quilt from the WIP box, a project I haven’t worked on in months. I had all the pieces cut out but only three of the blocks sewn together. Now, I’m happy to say I have a completed top! And I love it!
I finally went by The Little General (what used to be Karen Gray) over the weekend to see the ever lovely Gina and see her shop. I picked up a few lovelies to add to the stash and will definitely be back there soon. I was also able to drop off some business cards with the potential of more commissions which is exciting!
