This week’s finish
I had two projects this week - neither of which was a quilt. Weird. The first was a set of hot pads for a friend of mine. I’m loving the new Serenata line by Riley Blake by the way. To go with the hot pads I have a tutorial over on The Fabric Mill’s blog. It’s pretty straightforward stuff for most quilters, but for those sewers and crafters who don’t know how to do machine binding I explain it step by step. While I was at it I made several more hot pads for myself too. My older ones were looking pretty sorry.
The second was this bag which I'll show more of later. It's a quick and easy pattern, but I need a bag that is a bit more narrow and a bit taller. I'm going to tweak the measurements and make another out of these- (yes, more Serenata - see I told you loved it.)
I’m feeling a little low on both creativity AND time this past week. I wouldn’t call it a rut exactly, but it’s been nice to take a little break and some reading instead. I still do have this stack of ginghams that is calling my name. My original idea for using these was a 14” block but the math is killin’ my brain this week. For some reason this block is just not coming together like they usually do. Hopefully with a little more sleep and at least 30 minutes of uninterrupted time I can figure it out.
