My last post was a week ago. I just didn't have much to say over the last week. I've been reading all the blogs I follow and I'm amazed at all the wonderful things I see popping up all over blogland. There are some ridiculously talented quilters out there. In my last post, I mentioned I had lost my sewing mojo - the weather had been beautiful and I just didn't feel like being inside.
Over the last 7 days however, I've gotten motivated to get back to sewing again. Probably because work and home have been incredibly stressful lately and I need to spend some time doing what relaxes me most - and that is quilting and sewing.
I tried to be at my sewing machine every day for at least an hour this week and have some real progress to show for it today.
First, I spent a few hours quilting Nine-Patch Flip over the weekend. I unfortunately forgot my camera in the city so have no pictures to show you, but trust me, it's almost done! And it's a good thing too because I have to have it done for the end of the month (it's my LYOF goal for May).
Second, I cut into the fabric I showed you in my last post and started putting together Dylan's quilt. I am quite literally in love with this quilt top.
I love the colours in the Meadow Friends collection and I'm super happy with the Bella Cloud I picked for the background. I think it's perfect for my 9 year-old boy. All that's left now is to sew on the border and then quilt it of course.
And finally, I started planning my trip to Dallas (I fly out on Saturday) and realized I didn't have a pouch big enough to fit my make-up, and other small essentials so I decided to make myself an open-wide zipper pouch.
This is the fabric I chose - some Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.
I decided to make the medium size pouch. I will use the blue and red for the exterior and the grey is for the lining. I also had the perfect red zipper! I've got all the pieces cut and will be sewing it together later on today.
