In the sewing/crafting department, I am still quilting the tumbler quilt for our niece’s baby shower this weekend. Given the fact that I haven’t had a lot of time, this quilt has gone together very fast. I should be quilting right now, but I am watching Dancing with the Stars and writing this post. I can probably finish the quilting in the morning (my most creative time of the day) and then prepare the binding and the label.
Along with the quilt, I have been researching pacifier clips and made this one for my co-worker’s baby girl. These are a fun quick project and I have lots of materials on hand, except for the clips, which I ordered from an Etsy shop. I hope they come tomorrow, as I want to make some for the baby shower. I am still working on the best way to make these so I can sell in my Etsy shop. I think I’ve got it figured out, I’ll let you know.
I picked up the premier issue of Modern Patchwork from the editors of Quilting Arts Magazine last Saturday. The magazine is a lot like Stitch Magazine, with lots of projects. Most magazines I pick up and flip through, I am lucky to find one project that I like. There were ELEVEN projects in this issue that I absolutely love. There are a total of 37 projects. I read through some of the instructions and they seemed very thorough. The projects range from home dec and quilts to kitchen/dining, gifts, bags and totes. It is a great issue to keep as a reference when you need to whip up a quick gift. Check it out if you get a chance.
Works still in progress/on hold:
- Heart Quilt
- Dog Beds
- Cat-in-the-Hat Quilt
