Welp, I’ve done it. We’ve finally come to the end of my storage space on the blog. Two and a half years of craft blogging really does a number on the old photo uploads. While I figure out what I’m going to do, let’s talk quilts.
I came to a bit of a frustration point with Lumen, so I decided to step back into the sewing room. I pulled out those sewing WIPs and that kitten dresden was calling my name. I finally bit the bullet and just quilted the thing. I finished the binding the same day and lo’ and behold, a mini quilt:
It’s so precious! I did pretty simple quilting and I think it turned out very nice. It measures about 8″ x 8″ so it’s a generous mug rug size, but it’s just hanging on my wall for the moment.
After that, I was in a bit of a binding mood, so I went ahead and tackled my last full size quilt WIP. It took me a couple of nights to get the hand stitching done, but now it’s finished and it’s my favorite by far.
This is Layer Cake Pop – another free shortcut quilt pattern from Fat Quarter Shop. I used a 1930’s reproduction style layer cake from Lecien. I love the old fashioned looking prints in bright, fresh colors. I quilted it on a long arm at a local quilt shop.
That’s two sewing projects off the list! It’s back to the drawing board on this blog thing, we’ll see where we come out. I’ll just be over here plugging away (hopefully) on Lumen.
