    Default WIP - Sept 20-26, 2019

    September is just flying away, last week already. What are you working on?

    I didn't do much sewing as we were away, but Wed-Fri, I had a few hours to cut 30 tea towels of waffle weave. I wash the fabric, serge the edges, press and sew a seam all around. Then I cut strips of fabric to embellish them. Hopefully something that customers will want to give as hostess gifts or for themselves. I wrap them so that you can insert a bottle of wine or a can of maple syrup. I sew them production style, and I figure I have spent about 5 hrs so far.

    I'm down to the last 10, with wine & cheese fabrics. I think I have 60 for the craft sale in Nov. Then I will focus on microwave bowls.

    I have made many flying geese and have many more to go. I had to order more background since I couldn't find it locally so it has been shipped and I can make the rest. I can keep busy in the mean time trimming the geese I have already made to size.
    I made some pillow cases to go with the pink and then I made more for my guest bed. They are so very easy using the flat felled seam method and come out very professional looking.
    Today is football at our house so not much sewing until next week.

    I just finished the Criss Cross pattern from the Midnight quilt show yesterday and posted a picture in Show and tell. Today I am starting a kit called The Courtyard. It is a medallion style quilt. I am juicing up the quilt to my own style by adding some Kaffe Fasset prints. It starts out with a 9.5 x 18.5 center and you keep adding borders until it is an enormous 102 x 93. This one is going to be fun.

    The center print is a Kaffe Fasset print called Forest of Arden in the red colorway. If anybody is interested (hit the Thanks/like button to show you are interested) I can take a picture for every round of new borders I add. It won't hurt my feeling if you aren't interested. Not everybody likes Kaffe Fasset or red.

    It doesn't look it, but I spent 1.5 hours considering alternatives before I decided on this Kaffe Fassett fabric for the next border. The fabric is called Oriental Trees dated 2012.

    According to the pattern this border is supposed to be half square triangle units, which I considered redoing as flying geese units to minimize cuts to the pretty focus fabric. By combining a flying geese unit with a half square triangle it is possible to wrap the units around the corner making a very pretty pattern. Ultimately I decided the fabric was prettier uncut. My quilt, my choice.

    Oh Denise I love all the blocks. Each one draws you in for a closer look. I hope this one is yours to keep.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Going to sew my backing together and hopefully get this sandwiched today. Emma's Garden fabrics have been sitting around here too long! I used the pool noodles last quilt to sandwich and it worked really well for me due to the limited space here in the condo so will do it again today.

    Classic Coffee Cake pattern by Cozy Quilts makes it impossible to cut off your points. Love her patterns!
