Are you participating in the Spelling Bee Sew Along? I have been, but got a little behind because of my Xmas sewing. I got all caught up again with these precious picture blocks--the cake and the camera. I plan on making the quilt pictured on Spelling Bee by Lori Holt. The blocks are all in the six inch range. More information is located on my right hand side bar.
Aside from purchasing more of the background fabric (I already had a yard), I think I will be able to make this quilt from my stash.
We have been sewing two blocks a week.
I found some perfect little bits of pink in my pink scrap drawer to make the letter I blocks.
This morning, the last Spelling Bee Blocks of December were posted---the letters J and the Mason jar. They went together very quickly!
I have the J theme going this week with the piecing of the backing for my Denver Broncos Quilt--I tweaked the jersey design in the book to make an Elway and a Manning jersey. Between them, I embroidered my label.
I got my Denver Broncos Quilt pinned and quilted! I got about a third of the binding done too--I will spend the last regular season Sunday getting the binding done and squeezing in one last finish of 2017.
Since I had this last week off, I wanted to make a little treat for myself. I made a 24 inch Swoon block for a spot in my sewing room. You can see my go to cross hatch quilting in this picture and I bound it last night.
It goes perfectly above my new glass door cabinet in my sewing room. It is nice to end 2017 with a little goodie for me. This was a Drop Everything And Make It for sure. Check out other DREAMi projects here:
I know most of the country is experiencing frigid temperatures, but it is lovely here. I just walked out in my pajamas to take a picture of my Swoon Quilt and it is lovely in the sunshine. Stay warm and cozy wherever you are and have a safe New Year!
