For the fundraiser I made this quilt for a raffle.
I also made 115 of these chapstick holdesr! Very easy. I got the pattern on Pinterest. The tutorial I used has been removed I just discovered:( but there is a similar one HERE. I used home dec weight fabric.
I did manage to stick in a little personal quilting over the past couple of weeks and finished this little table topper from This and That patterns. I think I mentioned before that Sherri Falls does a little mystery project every 6 months and this was the latest. You can find her blog HERE.
Although I have been quilting for quite some time now, I have a few traditional quilt patterns that I have always wanted to try but never had. The first is a grandmothers flower garden. This isn't exactly that, but a hexie project that Karen at Faeries and Fibres is doing. Just scroll down to Value Proposition for the links to the first 3 blocks. She is posting a block every 2 weeks and there will be 18 all together. Here are my first 3. This is my watching tv hand sewing project.
I have also always wanted to make a log cabin and this week the Missouri Quilt Company posted a YouTube video tutorial for a curved log cabin that looks pretty easy. All you need is a jelly roll and a honey bun. Check it out HERE
The last one I have been wanting to do is a tumbling block. Today I found a Moda Bakeshop tutorial using the Honeycomb precuts. I love this! I may have to look for a honeycomb and try this too.
The recipe for this is HERE.
There is a shop hop coming up in a couple of weeks so I will be on the look out for a honey bun and a honeycomb for these projects. If I have specific things to shop for it's much safer than random shopping!!
