Hello Everyone! I know it’s been almost two weeks since my last post, but I have been busy working on the Cabin Collection for Jacquelynne Steves. I finished all the projects and sent them off on Monday. Yea! I have been working on the pattern instructions and will finish those in another day, but I thought I would take a few minutes to share the few other things I’ve been working on.
I finished Step 1 and 2 of Diane Knots Sew Your Stash Along. This is a free SAL on her website. I chose to use some red, blues, and whites that I’ve been collecting.
The SAL is a special project my guild is participating in. It’s always fun to see the different interpretations of everyone.
I finally started on the Minis and More project for this month, pin cushions. I made four from this book “Pin Pals” by Carry Nelson. Some are traditional patchwork blocks, others made with strips of fabric scraps. It’s a good book with lots of tips for working with small pieces. Most are under 5″.
These are three of them before they were quilted and stuffed. If you follow me on Instagram, @thequiltingnook, you’ve already seen a few of them. Friday will be the Minis and More Parade day and I will have a post dedicated to the Pin Pals. Each is associated with a quilt so be sure to check back Friday afternoon.
I’ve also been working on some x-stitch. I’ve finished stitching Winter in Baltimore by Brenda Gervais and it will be featured with the pin pals.
I also spent and evening working on the Gingerbread House by Country Cottage Needleworks. I spent the afternoon binding the cabin quilt with dark binding on black backing and my eyes needed a break from the 1 over 1 stitching of Winter in Baltimore. I just have a little left and this one will be finished.
That’s it for now, I need to get back to my patterns. Thanks for stopping by.
