I didn't get as much sewing done over the weekend as I was hoping to but I did make progress on a couple things.
Super stoked to report that I've finally cut into my fabric! I didn't get all the solid pieces cut, but I did start playing around with the layout just to get a feel for it. Please excuse the awful photos, the lighting was horrific at my parents house last night around 2am, lol. The background solid looks really dark in this picture, but it's actually more of a dusty navy...
Warm Cool QAL:
I finished piecing the top, whoo hoo! I'm bummed at how small it is, though. The HSTs ended up 1/2in short, so it's a bit shrunken. Maybe I'll add a border?
|in the thick of it|
I had put off piecing the HSTs together because I wasn't sold on the layout. I tweaked it a little, but didn't really have the time or patience to keep moving things around so I just said to heck with it and got busy sewing. I'm not in love with the finished layout, but it's different. So that works, I guess!
Punctuation baby quilt:
I just have one last border strip to sew on and the top should be finished.
I didn't actually touch this one this week. Owell!
Projects on hold:
I dunno when I'll get to this. I seem to have lost love for it recently. Mostly because the blocks are so not square and I'm so not looking forward to trimming them up! New Projects
Summer Sampler Series:
I realize it's ridiculous to join in on another QAL when you've fallen pretty behind on the ones you're currently working on, but I just can't pass on this. It's being hosted by Kate of Swim Bike Quilt, Faith of Fresh Lemons Quilts, and Lee of Freshly Pieced. It looks insane. I really like the idea of a sampler quilt and this one has some awesomely jazzy blocks. I mean, just look at it!
Till next time!
