Progress…

is such a wonderful feeling.

Two posts ago I had hauled out a pretty pile of fabric. I’m pleased to report that fabric has been not only cut, but also sewed together! I might have actually bought a smidge more fabric for this as well as mooched some scraps from a friend. But I’m so thrilled to finally, FINALLY! be making progress.

This was my layout tonight. The next step is cutting and piecing long strips of another fabric which I’ll wait to do when I’m less tired.

Best Laid Plans and all that

I first showed this fabric pull waaaay back in May 2017. And it’s been stressing me out since then to have this fabulous pull just sitting around. I’m now up to about the sixth or seventh pattern idea.

Today I futzed around with it *AGAIN* (yes, jazz hands are required when you say that bit) and found a plan that a) I liked and b) is achievable with the fabric I have (which is always a key thing. Who wants to buy more fabric?) To make it official I started cutting.

Wish me luck with this one!

Day 111

Had friends come for dinner tonight, and they usually bring a small present for my girls. I didn’t want to be empty handed again so I thought it was a good time to make them the set of placemats I’ve had in mind since April. I found a cute fabric with pugs on it and just never got the placemats made. Or started.

Until today at 4pm, when I started cutting fabric. I did a quick quilt as you go method. Using large pieces of fabric also makes things faster. I had B trimming the corners and turning them right side out when our friends arrived at 5:30. I quickly did a top stitch round the edges and called it done.

And my friends liked them! Linking up with Amanda Jean at CrazyMomQuilts for Finally Finished [Monday], because these are finally finished and off my to-do-someday list.
