Group Art Quilt

The art quilt group met and laid out our sections of the Matisse group quilt. A couple of the members volunteered to assemble it before our April meeting. I can’t wait to see it all together!

Stitchbook Sewalong

Kim Edith’s Stitchbook Sewalong continued with adding eyelets to assemble our books. It’s going to be interesting to get started on stitching up the pages.

Vintage Reimagined Challenge

The March Island Batik Ambassador quilt, Saltwater Taffy, has been completed and I’m delighted with the results–watch for a blog post soon. I discovered lots of information about the person who made the quilt top that it’s based on.

Hexie Mosaic

I started making hexies out of some of my hand-dyed fabrics using Hugs ‘n’ Kisses precut iron-ons a while back. I started sewing them together, but wasn’t satisfied with the result. They looked like bathroom tile, but I wanted more of a mosaic look. Laying them out on a gray solid and gluing down the hexies seemed like a good idea, but either the glue that I used was terrible or just not compatible with the hexie templates (which you leave in). The hexagons just wouldn’t stay in place for long, so I had to go back and baste them down by hand. Let’s just say that the project got set aside for quite some time…well, I’m pleased to say that it’s all basted and ready for quilting. Eventually.

Liberty HSTs

A couple of Liberty tana lawn mini charm packs and a tiny Bloc Loc ruler came home with me from QuiltCon, and I’ve started putting the mini charms together with some Moda Bella white to make tiny half square triangles. I have a few other pieces of Liberty fabrics that I’ll pull out of the stash to make more and then decide on a layout.

Plans for This Week

Tomorrow you’ll see a blog post for the release of the first block of Sew Let’s Quilt Along, then on Wednesday it’s my turn to share my project for the Text It! blog hop. I’m going out to get photos of Saltwater Taffy, too. As far as sewing goes, I have no specific plans other than planning the next Birds on a Thread challenge (masks) and making progress on some UFOs. With a busy family schedule ahead this week, it’s a good thing there’s not more on the sewing agenda.

  1. Good Morning Becca! You have had a very productive weekend. Those little mini-charms look so very tempting for a new project in the works. Have fun with those! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thanks, Roseanne! It’s really fun to just sew without a plan. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to that.

  2. Love the hexies – and good solution – although it wasn’t nice that the glue was uncooperative!
