Freshly Pieced blog's WIP wed party!!
Back in the fall, I started 2 quilts with "That Girl That Quilt-a-long". One reason I only finished one, is that everything in my stash clashed horribly with the "Bliss Quilt", and I couldn't find a suitable back. I put it away, planning on finishing it for next Christmas. Well, sure enough, soon after Christmas, I found a bolt of the Bliss line on clearance at my LQS!! Yipee!!!! So of course I bought a few yards, happy that I waited, and that's next on my to-do list. You can also see my work station in the back ground!
I also have my Mardi Gras Quilt pinned and ready to quilt. I had this Mardi Gras colored fabric that I had bought about a year ago, also on clearance. I bought it for another quilt back, but have enough to use on both quilts.
I also used some of the scraps from the Mardi Gras Quilt to make another Kindle cover for my Etsy shop, and made a few more as well. I bought the Texas Longhorn fabric at a quilt store in the Dallas area when I was there visiting my family in August (ugh... something to think about when I'm freezing here). But I ran out of velcro, so I included a WIP kindle cover so you can get an idea how I make them. They're really easy to make, but I do spend a bit of time quilting them to make them special.
Here's a shot of this one this morning when the sun was coming up and shining through our east-facing dining room/kitchen window. Pretty!
I made my son an ipod cover, complete with glow-in-the-dark thread. I was going to include a picture of a WIP pair of pants that I made for my son also. They're all done except for a snap I wanted to put on the waistband, but the local fabric store is sold out of big snaps right now. But as I was dropping him off at school today I noticed THAT HE WAS WEARING THEM! LOL! I sure hope they stayed up all day! I'm getting such a chuckle out of that, and it's the ultimate compliment! He's been in a "camo" kick for years now, and these pants were of course camo. So sweet! Hopefully I'll be able to put a picture up here soon! (still giggling)
Speaking of kids, my kids have scattered all of my big binder clips that I use for layering all of the quit together before pinning it. I had to buy more today so that I can pin the bigger quilts. How do you keep kids (and spouses / partners) out of your sewing stuff? Or how do you get them to return them?
