WiP is being hosted over at Don't Call Me Betsy this week. Don't forget to go check out everyone's work!
Well, yesterday I received my Giveaway Day prize from Clover and Violet: supplies for their Embroidery 101 quiltalong which I am going to start this week.
I also played a little with Lee's new Hexing Around Block. LOVE IT! I did mine quickly with scraps cause I just wanted to see how it would come together. Now, I will say, I messed mine up. See the green stripes on the top and bottom rows? Yeah, it ended up being only 1" instead of 1.5" so it shortened those sides and made it more like Wonky Hexing, but I love how easy it came together. It's also missing a row but I ran out of colors (I seem to use some of the same colors in my quilts; I need to branch out!). I can't wait to see how this design can be used! I think it would make a gorgeous pillow! Next time I will choose fabrics a bit better as well. Like I said, this was just scrappy.
I already posted about it this week, but I DID end up putting the 1 inch green border and 4 inch black border around my X Marks the Spot quilt. You can see that here. I feel like it's all I've blogged about lately so I need to finish up some other projects.
I did a little more quilting on my sister' quilt but haven't been able to spend as much time on that as I'd like. Considering her birthday was May 12th, I need to get that done.
Well, since I spent the week getting teacher's gifts done and getting an upcoming 4th grader and kindergartener acclimated to being at home for the summer, not a lot got finished. But I did finish all the mug rugs for teachers' gifts.
Goal for this week:
