As the temperatures warm up, I find myself less inclined to spend too much time sewing, but I did manage to complete a couple of projects this week.
Sadly, the Sew Out Loud QAL has come to a conclusion with the final block instructions posted last week.
Naturally, it wouldn't be a block of mine without something wonky about it!
The needle hole should look a whole lot better than that!
But, what the heck...I'm leaving it alone.
Now I just need to join together the 12 finished blocks, quilt them, and get them hung on the wall in my sewing room.
For the second project I completed this week, I used the new fabric collection, Summersville.
A couple months ago there was a New York Beauty QAL which I joined and then abandoned after only doing 2 blocks.
I loved the blocks, but didn't have a clear idea what I was doing with them!
It wasn't until I saw a table runner by Lee here at Freshly Pieced, that I knew what I wanted to do. Thanks Lee!
So, here is my New York by way of Summersville!
These are some beautiful fabrics and make a great summer
I think I'll also use it to make some new pillows.
Finally the thread I've been waiting for has arrived and I can get back to quilting Ocean View and Ironwork*.
Hope everyone has a great sewing week.
