I've had a few really busy weeks, which is meaning I'm spending less time on twitter and more time sewing. That has to be a good thing, doesn't it?
Anyway...if you follow me on instagram you've already seen what I've been doing, but I like to keep a record of it on here too, for myself if nothing else.
Allie at Kaufman asked me if I could rush a little project for their booth at QuiltCon which is next week. A spring carnival something, if possible.
So I did. Because the folks at Robert Kaufman are amazing, and I love Allie to the moon and back.
In just 2 days (seriously, even I am impressed by this pillow. Hand pieced, hand appliqued and quilted to death. I worked fast). So although I won't be at QuiltCon, at least part of me will. Pop by the Kaufman booth and say hi to it for me (fabrics are kona new colors charm pack, white kona, architextures and the binding is modern quilts (so is the back of the pillow).
I've finished my 3rd #scrappytripalong quilt top. This time using Pat Bravo's new collection, Carnaby Street. Real pictures to follow in the next few days. I followed Siobhan's lead and made this one using 3.5" strips - I really like how it looks with those slightly bigger squares. I am trying to avoid starting another scrappy trips quilt, but in all honesty, I don't think this will be my last.
I hand pieced this block (it just needs appliqueing onto the background) which is for a class I'm doing later this year. I'm wondering whether I'm crazy enough to make more blocks and end up with a quilt. I think I might be.
It's February now (yeh, it's almost 2 weeks in) so it's time for the #xplusalong - do you want to join in?
I need to make more blocks, I've only got 4 so far. My aim for the week is for at least 2 more. We'll see how that goes.
So that's it - I've checked in, I've shown you what I'm doing, now I'd better get back to it!!!
