I missed last weeks WIP Wednesday. I was just too busy with school work and didn't get anything prepared. This is my "down" week, so I only had the online session to listen to. The homework isn't do until next weekend! I'm working on my masters in Proprietary Higher Education and the class I'm working on this term is really interesting, but boy does it take away from my quilting time.
Last week I made this pillowcase up for my little bro's birthday. He's a diesel mechanic by trade, so my mom had bought fabric to make both of my bro's pillowcases. Jim got his in April for his birthday, so Ed will get his tomorrow. My "little" brother turns 26.
Here's more of the pillowcase. I use the serger, so the pillowcases go together really fast.
I also had a new nephew, Owen Charles, born the 24th, so I got busy and made him a couple receiving blankets with the serger. This one is Case IH tractors in cotton with a black flannel back, since that's his dad and grandpa's favorite.
I also made this "Cars" flannel one with flannel backing. I figure since he's going to be so small this winter, he needed flannel blankets. I'll make him a quilt later when he's a bit bigger and I have more time.
I also have been working on this UFO of my mom's. It's Jim Shore Angels in the BQ2 pattern. This is the top I got done last month and this weekend (when I was putting off homework) I quilted it up. I just have the binding to hand sew down and then it will be ready to go! I hope to donate it to the new Terra Sancta project.
I also added my newest Jennifer Chiaverini pin to my collection. It's the one from the Wedding quilt.
I put these on my hand sewing bag since I hardly wear pins. The quilt keychain is 2" square and my freind Darlene gave it to me. It's hand pieced.
I also finished a new notebook cover for my MIL's co-worker Stephanie and worked on more Crown Royal Blocks. I also started a t-shirt quilt for a cousin. It's going to be a BIG quilt!
