What I Made Monday (30 July 2018)

FTC Disclosure

I admit it–I miss Mug Rug Monday! I love a regular feature. So today I decided to start a new one–What I Made Monday! And as a bonus, I’m going to make it a linky party.

What I Made Monday is a chance for you to link up what you’ve been working on in the past week–whether it’s a finish or a work-in-progress.

Last week, I made progress on my next quilt pattern, started two needle cases (and finished one), basted three quilts, and started quilting two of them.

My Next Pattern: In Progress

Sticky Candy Pieces

I’ve made a sample block, I’ve written and illustrated (most of) the pattern, now I get to make the quilt! Sticky Candy looks like it’s going to be a fast finish, and I can’t wait to share it with you soon.

Navette Needle Cases

Navette Needle Cases in progressLast year, I used a Navette Needlecase Fabriflair Kit to make an adorable addition to a swap basket at a retreat. It was so well-received that I decided to make two more for myself, plus one for a gift. I picked two of the Alison Glass fat quarters that didn’t make the cut for the Sticky Candy sample to make my own. There’s no machine-sewing required–just glue and some hand-stitching!

…but only two pictured. You’ll have to wait until September to see the My Happy Place row!

Sketchy block quiltI finally basted my Sketchy block quilt, and stitched in the ditch. I cut pieces of Golden Threads paper to the size of the screens and sketched my quilting ideas on there–but I’m still a few blocks short. Sketchy block quilting sketchesI also pulled out another UFO and got it basted, then stitched in the ditch. I remember buying this quilt kit because I fell in love with the fabric. Moda reproduced a line from an 1892 mill book for its “Collections for a Cause” to raise money for the Texas Quilt Museum. I thought the pattern was from Villa Rosa, but I can’t find it (either in my studio or on their website), so I could be mistaken–anyone have a clue?UFO

Plans for This Week

I plan to keep on working on the projects listed above, plus design a button for What I Made Monday! Um, I got inspired.

  1. I can see missing you Mug Rug Monday; I am sure what I made will catch on too! I love the needle cases and can’t wait to see your new pattern. It seems you were very busy last week!

    • Thanks, Kathleen! It’s astonishing how much I can accomplish when the loud kid is away at camp. 🙂

    • You should! I suggest no more than one a day, though, unless you have tougher fingers than mine…apparently, I have sissy fingers.

    • Well, I know for a fact that you’ll have a Fall into a QAL block to share next Tuesday! Each link-up will be open for a full week, so I can’t wait for you to show us your [REDACTED] block when it’s released. It’s been fun following along with you guys, and I hope I can participate again with the next one.
