Something Sunday 43: Quilt!!

I'm so happy to finally have this quilt to share here! I have it all finished, but I will admit, there might be some un-picking and fixing of some of the quilting. But I wanted to share it here anyways!


If and when I do unpick and fix what I want, I'm sure I'll share it again. In the meantime though, I have an exciting new quilt on my bed :)

Something Sunday: Fail 2/5

As I mentioned before, my goal is to do make something each week and share it here every Sunday. Even though sharing something every single Sunday would be amazing, I gave myself 5 "hall passes" for the year.

This week I'm taking number 2/5. I had planned to share with you a beautiful big quilt, but then my apartment lost power... for 4 days... sooo no sewing for me!

I do hope to finally have this bed quilt done and ready to share with you next Sunday though, so keep your eyes pealed! :)

ps: don't hate on me for not having anything this week!

Something Sunday 41: Stamps!

This week, I finally finished up the last of my rubber block and carved out 3 new stamps! They're all pretty simple, but I think I'll be able to use them lots!

 
I'm loving the new StazOn ink I bought. It was rather expensive, but it is a lot better then cheapy stuff I had been using! Plus it drys in about 2 seconds, Dye ink is the way to go.

Quilts By Christmas


I'm going to join in on Elise Blaha's Quilt Challenge, and commit to finishing two quilts by Christmas! I want to FINALLY have my new bed quilt done (a project that has been bumped to the bottom of my project list for a whole year), and I want to finish a lap size quilt to donate.

I'm already onto the quilting stage of my bed quilt, and will have it done asap, but I need to start from scratch for the donation quilt. Hopefully I can find some cheap fabric soon :)

Something Sunday 40: Mug Rug

This week I was really happy to get rid of some of my fabric scraps. I decided to make an improvisation-ally pieced coaster or "mug rug" for my desk, and I used only scraps to make it.

I spill almost every time I bring a drink onto my desk, so I have been meaning to sew one of these for ages. I'm happy to finally have it, although, I have a feeling it will be covered in stains faster then I'd like. Unfortunately I took these pictures at night, so they aren't as lovely as I'd like, but at least I didn't miss my Sunday deadline!

 

 I did simple quilting on this one, with just straight lines the presser foot width apart. I really love tight quilting, but never have the patients to sew it on actual quilts, so it was fun to get to do that with this mini-project!
