its nice to finally (sort of) be back into the swing of things with regards to sewing. i have gotten a few things done this past week.
i wanted/needed (what the difference?) an instant gratification project. so i made this nice large tote. its an Atkinson Designs pattern from their Big Bags, Little Bags book. i am not sure how to describe the fabric that i made it out of but i found it at Joann's & it was only $2.99/yard. it the type of material that the reusable grocery bags are made out of only tougher.
this really isn't a WIP item. it might be someday but as of now i prefer to call it a weak moment. i randomly check the Missouri Star Quilt Company's Daily Deal page to see what they have on special. needless to say one day it was a Sherbet Pips jelly roll & of course it was on sale so it found its way to my house.
not sure what i will make with it but it is yummy.
i finished my 1st quilt top for the H2H Challenge. i didn't follow a pattern. my goal was to use any much of the fat quarter's that i was given as possible. i have 2 small pieces left & they will be pieced into the back of the quilt.
my other sewing accomplishment this past week was finishing up these star blocks for my Opening Day quilt. i got the last few finished last night & laid them out on the floor. i still have some tweaking to do with the layout but overall i am pleased.
what project are you sewing on? i would love to hear about it
