So, anyway! Yes, I've been sewing. I've had some good progress too. I totally missed the "Lovely Year of Finishes" Feb. linkup though. I soooo did not get to my goal and then with no computer, I had no way to join in for March. Oh well, I still have lots of WIP's and will get back on track for the April link up.
I have had a lot of progress including a finish! I've been keeping up with the Vise Versa BOM. In fact, I find it hard to wait for the next month's block to be posted :) I am loving these blocks and can't wait to put them all together at the end. Here are the blocks for March:
I also started a new project in the midst of all my WIP's. I had a finish though so it's ok, right? ;) wink
I had won a giveaway months ago from Freckled Whimsy. I won her Paradox pattern and a mini charm pack of the new Kona colors that were being released. It took me a while to come up with a way to use those cute squares in a project. At 2.5" each, I wasn't going to get anywhere with the charms alone. I settled on making some log cabins and used the solid charms as the center of each block. I used this tutorial from Red Pepper Quilts. I love them :)
As a lot of other people jumped on the "Economy Block" wagon, I too joined in. I like them but I'm done. I wasn't really wanting to make an entire lap quilt out of them so I decided to end it at a wall hanging.
The fussy cut squares are from an I-spy charm swap from last year and the rest is all from my stash. It finishes at 32" square. Perfect for a wall in my sewing room :) I think I had it stippled and the binding sewn on in an hour. I'm getting faster with my FMQing and am ready to move on to another design.
I also basted another quilt top and will start quilting that today. It is another I-spy meant for one of my boys so I thought I should get it done before they get too big! Hope to be sharing that one soon.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday here!
