My plans to do some morning sewing in order to get on top of some UFO's is working. I completed some more blocks for A Grateful Heart.
But this weekend, it was time to work on WHATEVER I WANT!!!
I made this tote (a pin from Pinterest!) is from a Moda Bake Shop tutorial: Hushabye Tote
In addition to this tote, I also played around making some blocks to add to the growing piles:
- 18 - 3" nine patches (for a total of 111)
- 10 - 6" crumb blocks
- 6 - 6" split nine patches
On Friday, Hubby and I had a bit of time to go for a bit of a drive. Two of the stops included Cherished Pieces in Tillsonburg, and Quilt Junction in Waterford. I made a couple of purchases - - but mostly books rather than fabric! Here's this week's new additions to the stash though.
I've been drooling over the Tim Holtz fabric for months - and was delighted to come face-to-face with it in Tillsonburg! I treated myself to a bundle of 10" charms. They were offering a class of a great pillow using these fabrics - - too far for me to take part, but look as some of these projects on Pinterest.
I also found some solid FQ's in the $2 bin. I can always find room in my stash for solids. Moda's Sweet Serenade charm pack and a matching FQ came from Waterford. I must have been in the mood for "ephemera" type prints that day.
I meant to spend the afternoon working on the next blocks in the Love Blooms Here 6-part series from Quiltmaker magazine. I had been looking for this issue for nearly two weeks, and finally found it yesterday at the drug store.
Instead, I learned that my great nephew was playing in a basketball tournament in town, so Hubby and I went over and watched a very entertaining and exciting game!
So tonight I'll try to make a start on those Love Blooms Here blocks while I catch this week's episode of Mr. Selfridge on PBS.
