Hi and happy weekend y'all! My mister is watching football, so I am taking the opportunity to give my sewing machine a workout! :-) My local shop had my machine serviced and ready to be picked up in less than 24 hours! I was excited I didn't have to wait long. In fact, since picking up my machine on Thursday, I have pieced and quilting a small (baby sized) quilt, pieced another small quilt, and made a few bee blocks. I will share my quilts later this week. I wanted to stop in and share my do. Good Stitches blocks for January.
The do. Good Stitches bee is a Charity Bee and each circle works on a different project each month. This month, our quilter asked for some blocks to make an X-string quilt. The tutorial we are using is here. I must admit, I was a little nervous about this block, but it turned out well and I had fun making them. It's definitely not something I might have tried on my own, but I may now that I know its not as hard as it looks! :-) Here are my blocks ...
We got some new blender-type (tone-on-tone) prints for the Sew Lux shop the other day. I introduced them earlier today on the Sew Lux blog.
Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with some funny cards I made the other day using some repro vintage ad paper. See ya soon!
