Here’s an update on the progress I’ve been making with my sewing crafts.
Finished: I made 12 of these mini mesh bags for a project my husband’s been working on. He’s making a wooden version of the game board for Settlers of Catan. He made more houses, roads & cities and they needed something nicer than plastic bags. These are mini version of the mesh produce bags I sell.
Sampler Quilt: I have 17 out of 20 blocks made! I’m running short on the ivory solid I’m using so I’ve had to be a bit creative with the last few blocks I’ve chosen. I’m trying to do less paper piecing or use other fabrics for the background. Here are this week’s blocks.
This last block is a case of live and learn. I got the pattern from another source and didn’t check the scale on the template I printed out. As I started putting the block together I realized that I should measure, and the 1″ square was larger than 1″. The whole block ended up 14″ instead of 12. I don’t want to trim off the points so I think it will go on the back. I think its a fortuitous mistake since in some ways it is too strong compared to the other blocks.
Here’s the Photoshop version of them all together.
Wedding Gift Quilt: I’m halfway done hand quilting this. I set the goal of finishing it by the end of the month so I need to sit down and work on it some more. My Sampler blocks have been a more tempting way to spend my creative time.
Granny Squares: This is my leader-ender project, meaning I sew a pair of blocks together at the end of a series of piecing for another project so as to keep the needle threaded in the machine. I finished 4 more squares this week so I have 24/63 done. I kept picking sets that had more of the brighter colors I added in.
