February Update

Posted on: February 26, 2012

February is almost over and I have several unfinished projects lying around. Well maybe more than several. I have started too many things and had projects for customers that had to be done first and students, so not much got done.

This lunch bag got finished because I am offering this as a class so needed the sample done.

This is from the book One Yard Wonders. I changed a couple of things like adding the outside pocket and the handle. I moved the inside pocket from the back to the side so it could hold utensils. I used scraps from making my Guild Bag so I now have a matching lunch bag for those guild activities that involve lunch.

Speaking of Guild activities, a bunch of us got together last Thursday for a One-Day Retreat. This is a great time to start a new project. I had saved a Moda jelly roll called A Little Romance. Have you heard of Bed Runners? I got a book from Clothide titled Bed Runners and decided the jelly roll would be prefect for it. Actually, there was enough to make two of them. Here is a picture of half of the center section. 

I got a dark purple fabric for the border and one of them, will have a sashing of squares made from the leftover pieces from the jelly roll. The backing for them will be a an oriental floral print. I am very excited about this project. One will go on my bed and the other will be sold on Etsy. The batting will be silk. I have never used silk but it is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Can’t wait to try it.

The boucle skirt is still waiting to be hemmed and the oriental quilt is still waiting for stitch-in-the-ditch and binding. Plus I need to get the tax stuff ready for the accountant. Next week will be fun!
