Today's the last day to enter the big Giveaway Day giveaway here on my blog! Click here to enter, if you haven't already, time's running out!!!
It's Wednesday, and you know what that means - another week gone, another list to make! Here's a recap of the sewing goings-on in my neck of the woods...
Beep Beep quilts
Goodie Bag Swap
Spiderweb quilt - I am really, really hoping to focus on this one this week so that I can finish these blocks once and for all. I'm getting close!! I am really making some progress here, chain piecing the rest of the spiderweb quarters, which is less time-consuming than my previous piecing method. Stay tuned! I'm also trying to think about how I'm going to put these blocks together. I had initially planned on sashing these blocks, to emphasize the star shape in the center, but I'm not sure how I feel about it, now that I'm nearing the end of my piecing journey. Michelle suggested I lay the blocks out on my design wall spaced apart to simulate sashing, so now I'm pondering...though I'm leaning toward skipping the sashing altogether, despite how much I initially liked the idea on paper...
3x6 bee block tute - I lost track of this project last week - it was one of the posts that Blogger ate in the big Blogger hiccup, and then it returned twice over, and well...then I didn't do anything with it. This one should be up by Monday at the latest.
Still on hold :(
Super secret project
New this week: (I couldn't help myself)
Modern Crosses baby quilt - I love the super simplicity of the Modern Crosses pattern from Modern Log Cabins. Lately, I haven't been too into following patterns, but for some reason, I really want to with this one, though I am adapting the size from a large lap quilt to a baby quilt for some dear family friends, who have a new baby.
A new quilt along in the works - I'm getting ready to start a(nother) new quilt, and I'd like you to join me! Next week, I will have actual details, like what we'll be making and how much fabric it will take and all that jazz, but for now, if you like the concept of this block, you're going to like this quilt-along...
