I am back after not linking for awhile. I didn't think I got that much done this week until I started to write it all down.
I was able to finish these blocks for Jennifer in my A Twist on Tradition Bee.
I also put together (and mailed!) bundles of fabric for my month of the bee. I am asking for 12 inch star and pinwheel inspired blocks. I sent a variety of Meadowsweet, dots and solids.
Friday, after the baby was down for a nap (of course), I realized the 10 year-old was going to a birthday party after school! This is what I came up with:
A personalized tee-shirt and bag (made out of an old jean leg). Not too shabby. I love playing with fusible web!
But this was the big finish of the week. My first quilt of the year! The pictures didn't turn out that great, but I am loving this quilt.
I hope to have a tutorial out next week on how to make it.
And, speaking of tutorials, I am hosting Round 10 of the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along this month. I will show how to foundation piece different types crazy quilt blocks, how to add trims and machine embroider. The first post about fabric requirements is here. I hope you come and join this Crazy Quilt Along!
