Here’s this month’s stitching update from Stitched in Color, my sewing blog. I hope you’ll pop over and chime in! Folks, I’m having way too much fun.
This weekend I finished piecing this twin-sized quilt top for Aria’s bed. It’s made to match those wildflower curtains I made early this year, but with added purple by request. Can I just say I love the unicorns? This is like a childhood dream of mine come true! Um, Aria loves it too.
Sun Squares for Charity
This sunny block is 1 of 3 blocks I’ve made so far for a charity sewing bee organized by my favorite designer, Anna Maria Horner. Anyone can stitch together a 12.5″ square block (mostly monochromatic) for her Rainbow Around the Block efforts. She’s making quilts for victims of some nasty flooding in her Tennessee hometown.
When I saw this clever idea, I said, “Yes, yes, yes!” An eco travel lid is the perfect alternative to plastic wrap. I can’t wait for a chance to show them off next time I’m bringing a dish somewhere! You can find a link to the EASY tutorial on my blog.
What do you do with your toddler ruins a perfectly sweet pillow? Give it a facelift! Here’s another project inspired by “The New Crewel.” This one was quite fast and felt so gooooood.
I just love how this turned out! I’d love to make another, but we don’t need one. Hence the need for commissioned projects!
