I did a little bit of this and a little bit of that this week, so it's a mixed bag for Sew & Tell Friday.
Starting with these little bags I sewed to hold the game pieces for my sister's project. The pieces are craft foam shapes and sticks. Not sure yet how they're used, but I'll find out when I play the game!
The double pinwheel string quilt came back from the longarm quilter this week, and I could just squeal with delight! (Thanks again, Sandy!) I cut, sewed, and pressed the binding strips and am planning to finish it up this weekend.
Today, I sewed the whirlygig Christmas quilt top together.
One good thing about tornado sirens (and we had not one but three today), when I go to the basement, my sewing room is there. I sewed rows together during the time I was waiting for the storms to blow over.
When this quilt is done being quilted--and I haven't quite figured out how I want to do that yet--it'll be bound with the dark salmon/red snowflake print from the 12 Joys of Christmas line by Sheri Berry.
That's the binding fabric here under this little fat quarter stack that also found its way into my shopping cart. I blame Elizabeth! Her ironing board cover from last week was just too cute! By the way, Elizabeth is having a 200th blog post giveaway, so be sure to check it out over at Such a Sew-and-Sew.
I've got plans for the Frolic fabric, which plans I'll talk about more next Friday. See, I've got a birthday coming up in August--one that ends in a big honkin' zero. Thought I might share the joy and give back in some small way to all of you who inspire me. Here are a couple quick peaks at what I've been working on for that so far.
Okay, enough for now. More details next week!
