I'm back to sewing and enjoying this lovely summer weather. Here are some of the things I'm working on.
Here's my version of the Giant Chevron quilt pattern by Jess of Elven Gardens. I'm using it for the free motion quilt along. I was feeling pretty good about getting the top done until I realized I needed to take a trip to the local quilt shop to buy backing and batting. What a hardship! I did that yesterday so now I'm all set, and hope to get the pin basting done today.
I've also decided to work on the blocks from the book 100 Modern Blocks by Tula Pink. My plan is to do one or two each week. So far I've done four in one week....but I am on a weeks vacation.
Here they are:
This is block # 33. It actually has some Tula Pink Fabric in it. I pick some up every time I see some...but I find it hard to come by.
Here's block # 16. It has a little Tula Pink in it as well.
And here's block 71. It's a little wonky but we'll pretend we don't notice.
This one is block number 10. There's really no rhyme or reason to how I'm making the blocks. I'm just flipping through the book and looking at the fabric I have on hand. I love working like this. I find it really freeing.
This last photo is my back log of blocks for the Park Bench block of the month. I'm getting together with my quilting buddies on Saturday and this is the project we are working on. All of us are behind because we weren't able to get together for a couple of months......I'm a bit more behind than the other two so I have to do some catch up before Saturday.
I think that's enough sharing for one post. I'm one of those people who work on many projects at once. This makes it difficult to finish things....but it keeps me interested. I'm linking up to Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts, to Works in Progress Wednesday at the Needle and Thread Network, and to Works in Progress Wednesday atFreshly pieced.
