Many interruptions kept me away from my sewing machine this week but I did sew a bit.
Like these little bits for the sashing of The Hole In The Barn Door Quilt. (not yet trimmed.) Follow this link to see the quilt which I last worked on during the Orange month of 2021.
Do you secretly challenge yourself with your sewing?
Here's what I mean. I did 5 orange Star Bloom blocks. Then, for Jericho Wall blocks, I decided to use only fabrics that weren't used in those 5 blocks so the quilts won't look like twins of a different mother. You know what I mean? I believe I have enough orange to pull this through.
I used some arrow fabric in this one ...
and some books for the second one.
More blocks are cut and are ready by the sewing machine for the next sewing session.
I have just finished, yes at 4 p.m., I finished sewing down the binding for the Table Scrap Challenge.
Can you see the kitty's shadows on the white fabric in this picture? That's what makes it so special.
The points of the triangle are present, compared to being cut off like they are on other placemats.
Oh, I know it isn't perfect. Nothing is. That binding corner needs to be redone I think. It was the quickest binding job I've ever done and it shows, haha. Anywho! I love it. So this is my entry for the Table Scrap Challenge. There's no embroidery but there's a chicken!
This picture shows the true orange colours. Bright enough? It matches my personality, lol.
That's all for now. There are still a few days left in August to sew more orange. Let's go!
