The Longest To Do List

I think I am in the middle of more projects than ever before.

My friend Brooke got several of the usual sewing buddies to all sign up for the same class at Crimson Tate. We are doing the American Jane Merry Go Round Quilt. I am doing mine in Denyse Schmidt’s new Chickopee line. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this quilt. I really just wanted to hang out with my friends. But now that I have started it, I think I’m going to adore it.

Brooke and I are planning on doing Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl pattern (again for me). I bought Tula Pink’s Birds and Bees line. I don’t want to cut it up. It’s amazing. The lady bugs are my favorite.

I am also working on a custom baby quilt. The woman I am making it for had scraps left over from custom bedding and curtains she had made for the baby’s room, so I used some of that mixed in with some other coordinating fabrics.
Here’s how it looks so far.

I am also working on a secret baby quilt so no photos yet. On top of those projects, a quilt for each my mom and sister are currently sitting on the back burner. I have also been attempting to finish up any projects that have just been laying around. I have a really simple queen sized quilt I am finishing the quilting on so hopefully I’ll get it bound and photographed soon.

I’ve also been messing around with designing fabrics through Spoonflower. I currently have several prints for sale. Here is my sampler I ordered to proof my designs so I could start selling them.

I’ve cut them down and even made a few items from the squares. I’ve been adding these and iPad leather accented bags on my Etsy.

Whew! In my free time (HA!) I’ve been trying to get some bags and accessories made for a show in September. More on that later.

 

Recent Sewing Projects – Solids

As I said in my last post, I had nearly two weeks of non-stop sewing. Here are a few non-quilt related items I made.

I purchased a charm pack of Bella warm pastels. I didn’t really have a plan for it but liked the colors. I just started cutting and sewing and it turned into this little panel. I wasn’t really sure what to do with it, but I decided the pillows on my couch were starting to look a little tired, so I turned it into this little pillowcase.

I had sewn a string of these little squares together and liked it with the Kona gray so much, I decided to make a super simple quilt.I really love the simplicity of this quilt and it was so fast. I currently have it for sale in my shop.

 

I also decided to make a quilt for myself. It’s sort of a lap size. The colors are a little different in person. I love it.

I originally had it laid out like this. I wasn’t really loving it so I ripped it apart and redid it.

I love this way so much more.

I had some pieces left over so I made this little pouch. I hadn’t done much quilting, so I used this as practice.

 

That’s all for now. Even more projects coming soon!
