A rather uninspiring week for me, as I look at my sewing machine and then walk away from it!
I spent more time out in the yard doing fall clean up than I spent sewing.
Here is what I did accomplish...
Chelsea asked for wonky string kaleidoscope blocks in navy, orange, yellow and red.
For our Star of Africa bee, Benta is doing an interlocking star quilt. So, our contributions are going to be the centre block and four connecting blocks.
The centre block needed to be something representing our country(which is the basic theme of the bee), so I chose to do a very simplified version of Anne of Green Gables.
Not in a zillion years would I attempt to do a face, so Benta gets a straw hat and red pigtails!!
Finally for the Mouthy Stitches 2 swap, I have decided to do hexagon style block based on the tutorial from Lee here at Freshly Pieced!
I plan to change the white corners to a linen of some sort, as I don't think white is the best choice for a tote.
I have an idea for fabric for the backside of the tote and the lining, so we'll see what my secret partner thinks!
Remaining as WIP's
