This was a productive week, even if I didn't feel like I was in the studio sewing much. I couldn't motivate to sew late at night, so I started cutting out my batik scraps. I had some of mine and my moms and I spent about 3 hours Thurs. night cutting and about 2 hours on Sunday. I cut 2 - 2.5" strips to begin with, then if there was enough I cut a 6 7/8" strip and if there was any left I cut a 3.5" strip. The 2.5" strips below will probably make one of the Lazy Angle ruler quilts.
The large strips and 3.5" strips below are being cut during lunch time at work to make a jewel box quilt. You may remember the one we made as a friendship quilt for Regina (1I) last year. I loved the pattern and had placed it with my tote of batiks so I could cut them up when the time came. Well, this was the week.
Sunday and Monday nights I quilted this quilt for Heather. It's awesome and really looks incredible, but more pictures will come after it's given. It's a photo quilt using the snapshots block pattern.
Last night I made my MIL a new bag for work, so she'd have a place to carry her wallet and 3 cell phones. I made it an inch bigger both ways. This is one of her favorite fabrics and we're finally down to the last yard of it. We originally bought 9+ yards and she made a king size bed and pillowcases.
I also made her this quick cash and carry wallet, with vinyl on the outside pocket for her drivers license.
I've been slowly sewing the Merry Go Round blocks together. I have about half done. I laid them out to see what they will look like. It's going to be interesting that's for sure! I have such a hard time with scrappy!
