Okay…finally getting back into the groove (missed a few weeks). I’ve been really enjoying reading everyone’s accounts from the Sewing Summit (and yes, enjoying = quietly seething with jealousy).
The biggest news this week is that I started a new quilt! It’s going to be a bento box quilt for my nephew, and the colors are blue, navy, green, orange, and brown. I’m really thrilled about the fabric I bought (all from Hawthorne Threads, aside from one piece of Loulouthi that I bought last summer at Alewives in Maine). I’m using a lot of the Caleb Gray Robot Factory line, it’s so fun. Who doesn’t love robots?! Here’s the first block I made (pre-quartering):
I’m working on some handmade gifts for my friend and her son who took care of my dog while I was at a family wedding in California. So far I made a zipper pouch using some Robot Factory leftovers for her 4-year-old son (the J on the back is for his first initial). I’m putting some Matchbox cars in the pouch as a gift!
I’m still working on binding the Rainbow New Wave quilt, but I’m getting pretty close (it will be my 2nd completed quilt!).
And I have done a tiny bit on Livy’s wonky star quilt (i.e., changed my mind about what background fabric to use, ordered more of it, and started cutting scraps using the Go Baby HST die to form some of the stars).
Last but not least, the stuff I haven’t touched this week:
