I’m excited to get started today on the Quilt-A-Thon. My ironing board is packed with projects for the sewing storm that is about to ensue! I have the pinned the “sets” from last night, as well as some 5.5″ x 5.5″ squares that I am using to make another quilt from Jane Broket‘s Book, The Gentle Art of Quilt Making, and a few more pieces of The Olivia Lee quilt that Allie C. and I are working on together.
The magazine featured is an issue of Simple Handmade. Sewing. It is a magazine I purchased last year. It has great projects for the home and gifts to give away. I plan to test out an apron pattern today in hopes that I will be able to make several as Christmas gifts ( I can almost hear the bells jingling already ! 🙂 ).
This is my gorgeous pile of apron fabrics that I can’t wait to iron and cut into. They were washing and drying last time and now it’s almost time to play!! They are prints from the DS Quilts Collection for Fabric Traditions as well as one print from the Cloud 9 Fabrics Collection – a line of 100% organic cotton. The top two are flannel prints that I want to start brain storming lap blankets for the winter season.
I’ll let you know how far I get in Sunday Stitches Part II……stay tuned! Happy Quilting.
