WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

So much to work on! Still plugging away on Christmas stockings. 3 left to finish now (yay, hexies are done!) so I made some progress on hst's at our Sewing Saturday for the SLMQG, so hopefully I can have those done in the next week. That is my goal. And then I realized I want a tree skirt to be finished by the time I get my tree, not Christmas. Going to have to start that soon!

I've started kicking around some things to do for 4X5 bee. This is my first quarter and I know I want herringbone-ish so this is a start. Still trying to decide if I want to sash it or what. Or start over and make them match up. We shall see!

Post Summit Swap

Amylouwho is doing a miniquilt party and since I did my first mini quilt for the post summit swap, I decided to add it to the bunch!
I have to admit it was easier than I thought to actually make, but harder to plan out. With such a little space, you really want it to shine. I wasn’t thrilled with how it turned out, a little too busy than I would have like, but overall it was great practice and now hopefully I can get some little mini’s up all over my sewing room!

My partner mentioned some colors she liked so I went with brown and lime green and made some cute wonky stars and they are so cute and easy to make!

 The back
 I also wanted to try out machine binding again and my first run did not go so fabulous, but this time was great! No unpicking and no missed it on the back (I pinned ALOT this time)
