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
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
Last 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!
I 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. I 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?
