We had a second Friday Night Sew In this month so I settled into my comfy chair and continued on with some stitcheries I'd started earlier in the week.
I have been back to working on Ruth's Quilt by Leanne Beasley. The stitcheries don't take very long to stitch and I've added another four to my pile.
stitchalong I joined have got their tops together so I took a few minutes to pull out my fabrics. I cut a few of the rectangles needed and sewed a few together - just to see how they would look.
|Cute though :-)|
Over the weekend I got back to focusing on my goal of completing three overdue cot quilts before the end of the year. I have made a start on the next one!
(Footnote...very tempted by this pattern - don't you think two little girls would LOVE these???)
I'd had a spare hour during the week so did all the cutting for the first block. I pulled it out on Sunday and whew, I wondered what I had taken on!!
|Lots of pieces!! For just one block!!|
The pattern is Dogs in Sweaters by Elizabeth Hartman.
The cot sized quilt needs four blocks. Below are the fabrics I'd imagined...I'm thinking of replacing the bottom blue; it seems washed out compared to the others - thoughts??
Each dog will have different fabrics for the ears and tail, but I think I'll keep the body fabric the same...
I have a home day today so I'm hoping to get a little more sewing done. Wish me luck!!
