WIP Wednesday time! Unfortunately there has been little to no sewing done this week. We had such a crazy busy weekend, that I think the only time I was in my sewing room, was to put away all the fabric I bought on our shop hop!
I finally have all my blocks sewn together for the p.s. i quilt postage stamp quilt along. I was arranging my blocks on my design wall, I didn't realize how big this quilt is going to be, above is a glimpse at what fit on my design wall. I did spend some time sewing rows together, and have the quilt top almost half way pieced. Thats my goal for tonight, get this quilt top finished up! I really do like how this is turning out. I was originally thinking of giving this quilt to my cousin and her soon to be husband as a wedding gift, but I found a better quilt to make for them (more to come on that later!) I'm thinking this might be tucked away for a friends birthday, but we shall see.
I blogged about these yesterday, and I guess it is technically something I did finish this week. These are available for purchase if anyone is interested for $ 4.00 per topper.
Baby steps here. I have found my fabric I want to use to make my Cosmo Bag from Amy Butler's style stitches! This is project numero uno after that quilt top is pieced together.
Sew Sweetness Sew Along
Sara from SewSweetness is hosting a sew along to make a dress!! Sara always has the most adorable dresses and clothing that she makes featured on her blog, and I am always in awe of what she can do with a sewing machine. She has put together this awesome sew along using the Sis Boom Jamie dress pattern, which I think looks absolutely adorable.
I am stepping 100% out of my comfort zone on this one and am hoping that my end result is something I wouldn't be embarassed to wear in public! Above is the fabric I selected for my dress. I have to say, I found it very challenging to select a fabric that I could envision on that large of a scale, so here's hoping my selection works well! My fabric has been prewashed and I need to print out the pattern pieces next.
