I got a little side-tracked tonight. I took the leftover pieces of the Eva quilt and pieced them together. Then I backed them with iron-on fusible interface. Then I used them as two pieces of fabric and cut out the body of a purse! Here's what I have so far, identical front and back. I'll work on pocket, lining and straps tomorrow.
I think I've got some plum velvet somewhere...might be fun for the lining and straps.
Ok, so I made this for my dining room table, which is very long and wide, and in a very dark espresso colored hard wood. I just didn't realize until I put the polka dot border on tonight that it really is HUGE! I'm thinking that this is also going out to be quilted. I'm just too intimidated...
Hi everyone! Well, I'm going to be taking on a consulting job for a year, so I'm in major panic mode, "must get all my UFOs done!".
Since this Holiday Fabric Exchange project was already in the making I'm trying to finish it up so I can move on to some Christmas gift sewing. Here's the wreath appliqué I pieced tonight. It's just pinned on and I'm still working on some other appliquéd shapes down by the base of the tree.
I don't want this quilt to be too busy, but I also want to add a festive holiday feeling to it. I may even embroider "Happy Holidays" or some such across that cream piece right under the tree. What do you all think? BTW, this is measuring 41"x54" right now without binding.
I AM working on something! I joined a fabric exchange. We all have the same forty-five 5"x5" squares to use in a project of our choosing. I decided to make a Christmas wall hanging, of my own design. Here's my progress so far:
So now my main, focal piece is done and it's time to arrange HST squares all the way around. I will post today's progress tonight or tomorrow.
