In Stitches

Hey y'all!  Hope your weekend is going swell!  I am headed to a conference with my students tomorrow, but managed to sneak in a few sewing projects that I've been wanting to get to. 

First up, a hexagon project with some lovely Tea Garden fabric.  Aren't these birdies adorable?  I blogged about this project on the Sew Lux blog here.

I also managed to piece a small quilt!  This was so fun using these little Castle Peeps fabrics.  I used a wonky log cabin block and I was a little concerned it was going to look terrible in the beginning, but now I am really loving it.  I have a 3 x 4 set of 9" finished blocks. Any thoughts on a quilting design?

The funny part about this quilt was that I pranced downstairs to show the mister and he was like, "when did you get that fabric? ... the middle ages?!"  Let's just say he's not a fan of this one, but whatever!  I plan to put it in the shop when I get it finished up and I am sure that it will be perfect for someone's little king of the castle! :)

Have a great weekend y'all!

  1. How about outlining a big castle shape in the middle, then meander/stipple all around it?
    Or lots of angular meandering, to echo the shapes of the flags, towers, and turrets?
