Catch Up

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

How is it already the second week of August? This summer is flying by! Somehow I managed to take a little bit of a mini break from blogging. I felt like I used up all my content last month. I am mostly behind on taking photos of things. I'm expecting that posting will be pretty sporadic over the next month or so. With summer winding down and our wedding quickly approaching, I'm trying to relax a little. I have been planning lots of sewing projects though, including a couple new quilts!

New Projects
One of those quilts is one using Leah Duncan's Morning Walk collection. I love the colors and prints in this collection, I think it's my favorite of Leah's! I chose a minty solid for the background to mix things up!

Geometric Bliss Triangularity Quilt
Last month my giant Triangularity quilt came home from being quilted by Melissa. I made the binding this week and am just waiting for a cool enough day to bind it up.

Knit Linden
I carved out some time the past weekend to make a lightweight knit version of the Linden Sweatshirt by Grainline Studio. I have to admit, I wasn't sure how much I'd like a light sweatshirt, but it is SO comfy. It's going to get lots of wear especially this Fall. For this first one I used the Firefly Jar Dark knit from Curiosities. Now I'm scheming a few more lightweight versions. I love this pattern!

As a maker it has been a constant back and forth about what to DIY for our upcoming wedding. At first I was tempted to do everything, but since we'll only be home a few days before the event, and it's a lot of work and stress to do everything yourself, I came to my senses early on. I chose only a few things to make, including designing the stationary and making bunting. Of course I had to make bunting! I'm thankful that I was able to finish it up last month, yay!

Paper Piecing
I am teaching three new classes at The Sewcial Lounge this Fall: Foundation Paper Piecing, English Paper Piecing, and Rotary Cutting Basics. For more information about each class and to register, go here.

Antique Mall Finds
Michael and I made a trip out to the Columbus Antique Mall a few weekend's ago. I managed to find a few goodies!

George bunny sweet! He is just so cute :)

Happy Wednesday!


  1. That sweatshirt looks adorable! I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer :)

  2. Oh, he is really cute!!! And yes, the time flies by this year, I cannot really believe it. And I would love to see your quilted quilt.
    Greetings, Rike

  3. Did George model for the center of your PP block? :-)

  4. Wow, you've got so many lovely projects on the go. I was a miss before our wedding just juggling work and life - thank goodness I didn't find sewing until after our wedding (although I like to imagine how much awesome I could have made for our wedding!). :)

  5. Little George looks like he's thinking the green pom poms might be tasty!

  6. Attention, George: Pom Poms Are Not Brussels Sprouts! He looks like he's about to nibble them right off the pillow! :-) Best wishes with your upcoming wedding, Jeni! I think it's cool that you did your own stationary and bunting, but it's good you're not trying to go all Martha Stewart and make ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING from scratch. Good women have completely lost their sanity for less than that! :-)

  7. Hello, love the sweatshirt! Was the antique mall in Ohio? Could you tell where it's located? Thanks.
