February Mini Finished!!

This month’s “Schnibble” Group project was an adorable mini Union Jack quilt by Fig Tree Co!!

2015-02-23 14.24.45-1

I really love this design!  I had some Somerset fat quarters…

and a few others from my stash that I combined for this quilt!

It was a slightly tedious block to put together.

2015-02-21 15.05.02

Mine certainly are not perfect in any way at all…

2015-02-19 18.33.48

but I do love them all put together!!

2015-02-23 14.26.02

I think the colors are going to look perfect with my summer decor later this year!!

Keeping Busy!

We are expecting 6-8” of snow tonight, so tomorrow we’ll be socked in- perfect for sewing!

I fell in love with this leaf quilt from Fig Tree Quilts, and I loved it in her Somerset collection.

It’s a jelly roll quilt, which I LOVE, as cutting is my least favorite part of quilting!
IMG_4185
It was a fun block to put together!  Super easy, too!
2015-02-12 10.24.16-1
The brown stems were put on with fusible then I blanket stitched around the edges.
2015-02-10 10.42.01
I did make the quilt one row shorter than the pattern, and it still was a really large lap quilt!
2015-02-11 16.29.26
I used three of the extra leaf block to make a small table runner for my foyer table.
2015-02-11 11.42.34
I used the last leftover block to make a pillow cover for the library. 
2015-02-11 12.18.17
I also had many jelly roll strips leftover, so I cut them into squares and made a square table mat!

Really love these fabrics!!  The design is somewhat fallish,
2015-02-12 10.22.39
but I think it will be perfect to put out in September!!
2015-02-12 10.25.54-1
Tomorrow I’ll be sewing on some birthday gifts for bee friends!!  Can’t show you those, though!!  They read my blog, too!!
2015-02-10 14.04.21
So, Yogi is wondering what you are up to this week?

I have a big bag I made last year that I take to bee when I have a quilt to bind!  It’s quite large with plenty of room to carry most any size quilt.
IMG_2837
But I often do not have a quilt to bind at bee, so I needed a much smaller bag to carry my ongoing hand work projects to bee.

So, I made this one last week with some Sewing Box scraps leftover from several previous projects!
IMG_4217
It’s the perfect size for my current wool stitchery project and my Sew Together bag with all my thread and such needed for the project!!

So Yogi wants to know all about the bee you are a member of!!  Do tell!!
