100 Days of Stitching Arts



Happy Friday Lovelies.

I have been busy working on a few different sewing projects.

I joined The 100 Day Project as an impetus to get some of those projects moving forward and it has been working well!

The best part of moving back into our house is going through my work in progress projects that I haven't seen in over a year.  Most I have been excited to continue working on and moving towards FINISHING!   I'm trying really hard to finish things....... which isn't a strong suit for me!!!

Anyhow, I though I would share a few more things I have been working on!



This patchwork project was a sew along hosted and created by Chase of Quarter Inch Mark, which I started years ago.
I added a few more 12 patch blocks and sashed the blocks in Essex Natural Yarn Dye linen.
The hand quilting will be done in Finca size 8 embroidery floss.  I love to have a hand project to work on at night while watching the telly!



Ok...I did join a new sew along.  I couldn't resist.
The Minimal Day Sampler is hosted by Bespoke Outlaw for the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild but anyone can sew along!
You should head over to this post and read about the inspiration behind the blocks.  It is a very cool story!



More progress has been made on my new pattern ~ Macaroon Pouch.  I am fine tuning the pattern and instructions, and hope to release it in a week or two!
The center print is an older Melody Miller Print and the border is a yarn dyed indigo linen I had in my stash.



I unearthed my Liberty Kaleidoscope quilt project and have added a few more blocks.
You can find the pattern on the Sew Mama Sew website [HERE]



Yesterday,  I finished a few new pillows for our living room.



I love the way they turned out!  I used [this tutorial] from Seamstress Erin to add piping with an invisible zipper closure.  Since the zipper is hidden, they are reversible!

Have a lovely weekend!

  3. Lovely, all! The first photo reminded me that I have a stack of those little twelve patch blocks from Chase's sew along, too. Your finishes are inspiring!
