Between the Simple Whatnot's meeting at Colorz and Stitching Society at Gruber's, I've managed to accomplish a few things in the sewing room.
I started putting together Words to Live By. The half square triangles have been finished for over a month and I figured it was about time to start sewing them together.
|I'm really loving how the triangles look around the center block--I'm excited now to get this project finished.|
I also made a few place-mats for Meal on Wheels.
Our guild makes them every year and they are given out with a Christmas meal. I raided my Orphan Block bag and added fabrics from my stash to make them place-mat size--good to get some of those blocks and some older fabrics from the stash used up!
|This one was made with reject blocks from my Around the Block quilt and the Temecula 12 Days of Christmas quilt.|
|This was a test block for a model at Colorz for Quilts.|
(Diamond Diva by Anka's Treasures)
|This one was a class sample for the Sew Simple Pineapple by Karin Hellaby|
|Leftover blocks from Trick or Treat quilt.|
There are still more blocks in the Orphan Block bag, but they will have to wait a while to come out to play.
Of course, I am still stitching on my wool hexagons!
I have stacks of them ready to stitch as time allows, so they will make a good Sunday pick-up project.
