I have been trying to blog all week, but it keeps getting pushed down the to-do list. With Sewing Summit (just a few days left to register, hurry!!) right around the corner, among other deadlines, things have been a little crazier than usual! I got a lot of sewing things done this week, although not so much laundry or cooking, whoops! Since I'm exhausted (and our internet is out and I'm in a McDonald's down the street), I'm going to make this short and sweet. More details on these projects in the next few weeks! :)

18" square. Used this Circle of Geese tutorial (scaled up the pattern a bit!). Kona solids. Backed in Ikea print, bound in Remix by Ann Kelle. Not as hard as I thought it would be!

Modified Nine-Patch by jenib320

12.5" square. Modified Nine-Patch. Terrian, DS Quilts, Aviary and Henna Garden. Quilted with King Tut thread. Batting + Insul-brite.

Wanted to spruce up my go-to notebook! I used blue and green fabrics and this tutorial! :)

7" zippy pouch! I had this idea floating around in my head but I wasn't sure if it was going to play out right. Thankfully, it did! :)

12" square. Scrappy Log Cabin. Various pink, blue, yellow prints + Kona Stone. Backed in Farmdale, lined with Midwest Modern. Interfaced with fusible fleece.

New Scarf by jenib320

I needed a little sewing-for-fun project to help stave off some anxiety, so I made this scarf! I picked up this Loulouthi (by Anna Maria Horner) voile on a whim and decided it would make a great scarf. I backed it with some black/charcoal herringbone flannel from my local quilt shop. I added some pom-pom trim to finish it off! It's SUPER long, 9" wide by 118" long! It's perfect though, long enough to go around my neck twice while doubled! Was definitely inspired by Karyn's Nani Iron scarf!

  1. Hi Jeni! I love your blog and all your fun projects. And, I LOVE James McAvoy!!

  2. Is George going with you to the Sewing Summit? And, if not, what does he want you to bring him back?


  3. Hi Jeni..

    How DO you do it? You are one busy gal. I your projects. Super cute. I never thought about making a scarf. Dur! (That's what my granddaughter says all the time to me.)
    Girl... I can't get anything done to me liking.
    I'm making a mermaid tail for granddaughter now and I've got to finish it today. I may blog about it, I don't know. The first pix didn't look too great.
    I wish I could afford to go to the Sewing Summit. What a trip that would be.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your wonderful treasures with us 'blog hoppers.'

    Take care and enjoy the Summit!
