This week I've been working on tying up some loose ends and finishing up some half-finished projects. I want a clean starting point as I move towards working on my next fabric collection (eee!), new patterns, and the holidays. One of those projects was my Ornate mini quilt from Christina's class at Sewing Summit! I had the curves all pieced but needed to put it all together. I'm hoping to get it quilted and finished tomorrow!
drawstring bags than any one person could possibly need or use, but I just can't seem to stop myself from making more! I'm excited to be teaching my drawstring bag pattern at Quilt Camp coming up the first week of December in Michigan! Faith Jones is going to be teaching paper piecing using the Poinsettia block you see above! I knew right away I wanted to add it to a drawstring bag! I used the Artist size bag from the pattern version so it's quite roomy. It features Oval Elements and a few Pure Elements from Art Gallery Fabrics! The ruler twill tape is from here.
There are still a few spots left for Quilt Camp, so if you're on the fence, make sure and sign up quick, it's going to be a lot of fun! For more information, see here.
Renfrew Tee pattern by Sewaholic at Sewing Summit. It actually turned out pretty cute! I'm not sure if I'll make another though. Nothing wrong with the pattern, just never seem to enjoy working with knits, even now that I feel more comfortable with them. Just not my thing!
vintage sheet shop this weekend! I'm going to start putting together some rainbow bundles and other fun things like project kits! Just in time for holiday shopping! :)
Ruby Star Wrapping by Melody Miller at Sewing Summit. It's a great book for anyone who's interested in creative packaging! My friend Sukie is putting on a Wrap-Along for the next month and beyond to craft up the projects in this book! I wasn't able to squeeze it in, but you should definitely check it out! You can see the fabulous line up and more information on Sukie's blog, here.
