I have been so in l o v e with sewing as of late.
I mean, I always love to sew but lately
I feel extra creative and really
enjoying the entire process.
from picking out the fabric to
laying out or designing the pattern,
(almost feel like a designer)
maybe I missed my calling...
although I am only Thirty Something,
I probably haven't missed anything
We are supposed to design a name tag to wear at
our guild meetings...
Hello my name is...
So here is mine,
I used fabric from my stash...
It is only 4 x 3 so it is pretty small.
I am going to put a grommet into it and
and stick it on a silver chain.
This is the back.
It would be my nod to
the wonky log cabin
I LOVE my my little VW vans....
These might just be the worst photos in history....
The other thing that I made was this AMAZINGINGLY
HUGE wonky Star wall-hanging.
I saw it somewhere on Pinterest and decided I needed
to make that.
I am actually going to be entering it in the Sussex County State Fair.
(If I get it done)
I still have to back it and bind it and quilt it.
When it is complete I will get some close up shots of it.
It has a Star in a Star in a Star.
The original I saw did not have the tiny
star in the middle square.
I also Made a Quilt for my Mom and Dad for their Anniversary.
I made that in 2 days.
I planned on taking about a week,
but life happened and I needed to get it done in a hurry.
I captured the goings on with my phone...
Here I am piecing away.
Stitching on the very adorable binding...
(and if you don't know how to make your own binding,
please tell me, I would love to teach you how.)
I adore pieced backs...
So here is the back
Sorry, I should have taken it outside and hung it on the clothesline but
I was on a very tight time schedule...
I used Cluck Cluck Sews
Stars and Stripes Quilt and made it a Throw Size
My Mom and Dad really liked it.
I was pleased that I finished it.
and even got it quilted...
I just did a simple line quilting.
anyway, I have been busy sewing all summer,
what have you been up too?
