Anyway, I try to sew as much as I can, when I can, and am thinking about what I want to create when I am not able to sit down at my machine.
Here are a few things I have been up to lately -
Jelly Roll Race -
My LQS had a jelly roll race a week ago. I have made this kind of quilt top before but never raced! It was fun! I didn't place at the race but had a good time sewing with friends. I used the bright and cheery fabric - Tradewinds by Lily Ashbury for this one and am pleased with how it turned out.
Houndstooth Baby Quilt -
I finished the Houndstooth Baby Quilt top that I have been working on for a few weeks. I found myself working on this one sporadically. Quilters A.D.D. I guess! Anyway, I am glad it is done and need to find some fabric for the back. This is a for a baby that is due in June so I am still ahead of the game! The pattern is Houndstooth by V&Co and I used purple and grey Bella Solids for the fabrics.
Hexagon Quilt -
Last month, I was fortunate enough to attend QuiltCon in Austin! It was a great experience and I need to do a post on that so I won't forget the experience. Anyway, one of the classes I took was taught by Jacquie Gering. She was a great teacher and I am really glad to have taken her class. In the class we learned how to machine piece hexagons! I am pretty slow at the process but enjoying the result. Like the Houndstooth quilt above, I work on this one for a little while and then put it away for awhile. I don't have a picture of my progress yet, so this is the picture from the design wall in the class. The fabric I am using is Lily Belle by Bari J. for Art Gallery. I love these fabrics!!
I need to go back and update all of my WIP's but I am afraid to! Eek! Too many to count! Linking up to WIP Wednesday with Freshly Pieced today. Thank you for stopping by!
