Sundry WIPs and a Charm Pack Destash

The giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

I'm working on a hexagon paper pieced project I'll show as a completed project in November. I'm using Amy Butler's Cameo. I like this fabric but I LOVED Soul Blossoms.

This is my Sew Bee It block for September. It has been sent to Carla. She makes such amazing quilts! 

And my first two rows for Bee in My Bonnet's Row Along.

I saw this Happy Drawing panel by Ed Emberly and fell in love with the adorable stuffed creatures that can be cut out and stuffed.

I've finished a couple of them and will hand deliver them to this little guy next week. He'll be two in November. He's getting older but I am not. 

And last of all, I've been cleaning my sewing room and have a few charm packs I'd like to share. 

If you are interested leave a comment and I'll choose a random winner on Monday Oct. 1st.

WIP Due in November

What better work in progress is there than a grandbaby girl arriving in November? We have a grandson who will be two in November who was born on Cindy's birthday. They are birthday buddies.

The doll bed belonged to my daughter when she was little. She gave me permission to hand it down to her niece. I wish I had taken a before picture to show it in its original state. It was dark wood and needed a bit of brightening up.

I painted it and made a doll blanket with leftover squares from my great granny blocks. 

I have some red striped ticking and made a mattress and pillow. I think my favorite part of the entire project is the pillowcase. I don't think the dolls will ever notice that I used french seams on the interior of the case.

 Daisy Cottage fabric by Lori Holt is one of my favorites and I had the perfect piece for the quilt backing.

My friend Bev is having a lovely Daisy Cottage giveaway on her blog. She also has a wonderful etsy shop and provides excellent service!

Another work in progress is my wild and crazy Field Study blocks. I'll either make a quilt or a wallhanging....not sure yet.

Bella (Margaret) Bag

I made this sweet little pleated bag yesterday. It's called the Margaret Bag by Clover and Violet. I bought the pattern as a PDF file from their pattern shop. I love the instant gratification of PDF patterns. Within the same day mama had a brand new bag. Uh...maybe that should be grandma had a brand new bag! It's small but I wanted something to sling over my shoulder for a quick trip to the store. I modified the strap to lengthen it a bit. The pattern was super easy to follow and fun to make. In fact, I liked this pattern so much that I have my eye on some other Clover and Violet patterns!!

Bella is such a pretty line of fabric. I love the "cuteness" of the birds along with the bold and abstract designs. 

I have another finish and a WIP to share this coming week. See you soon!

It's a Ruby last!

Mr. White Socks (no...not a cat) has been feeling a little left out of the blogging scene. I can't use him in the blog unless I have a quilt for him to hold up! 

At one point this is what Ruby looked like after the blocks hit the to speak. I'm pleased that I was able to put the pieces back together!

I quilted Ruby with straight lines which you can see a little better on the back.
Why does Ruby look bubbly in the photo? She's crinkly but that I like.

Note to self: Remove the basket of flowers before I photograph any more quilts. It manages to make an appearance in most of my quilt shots. 

With Ruby out of the way, I feel a little better about bringing new projects on board. I'm doing Bee in My Bonnet's Row Along. Her quilts are always cheerful and I'll take cheerful whenever I can get it!

See you soon!
