Summer time = Late night sewing!!
I've got a few things finished lately!! Aren't you proud of me?!?!?! I made a baby gift for Kevin (Mr. Me's cousin) and Sheena's little boy, Theo! It's an X's and O's quilt with a panel in the middle. I'm pretty proud of how the quilting turned out for the tree.
I also finished the quilt that my cousin, Derek's wife Carla asked me to make for their little guy Tucker. I think it turned out great except as I was making the binding, I didn't realize that I put it on wrong-side out. Didn't notice that the seam was sticking out until I sewed over top the 4th one. Oooops!!! It's a pretty big ooops. I didn't fix it either because I was 1/2 way around the quilt before I noticed it. I think it adds character to it. Yep ... I'm going with that ... character!!
I have fallen in love with Basic Grey's fabric line called Grunge. Its solid colours with some texture on them. Love them!! I bought two jelly rolls of this material below. I'm adding white triangles inbetween one below.
This is the second quilt I started. I actually started this one about 10 pm tonight!!! I love Jay Bird Quilts pattern called Northern Lights. Since I have the ruler and I bought some great material, I thought I should give it a try. I took a look at the pictures and then drew myself a pattern, measured the material and cut it out. I sewed two rows together to see what it was going to look like. I think I have it right. Might be a little skinny!!
I have a bunch of other items to be working on but this is way more fun!! What have you been up to lately? I have most of my scraps and odds/ends into a rubber maid tub for you. I'll ship them on the bus before the end of this week. Then you will be loaded up with scraps!!!
