I sewed away this past weekend–I began working with the fabrics above but I did edit them just a bit. I added in some dark blue and I added in a touch more grey–I have been on a grey kick as of late–so, I hope my partner is digging it also! =) Here’s a little peek at what it looked like early on Saturday.
Yes, that is a set in seam folks–I hope you feel the love partner! =p This pillow top required 64 triangle pieces all cut using a template–now, I am not a template kind of gal–I am all for some quick rotary cutting all the way. However, I have recently discovered a new reality show, which my dvr conveniently keeps on recording for me…”The Millionaire Matchmaker”—how did I miss this entertaining show for so long? =p Anyhoo, it made cutting my triangles a breeze–banged them all out on Friday evening(please no comments about my exciting Friday evening spent watching reruns of reality shows and cutting fabric). =p
And another little peek–after spending more time Saturday and Sunday sewing I have completed the pillow top. Now, I need to decide how to quilt it–I think I’m gonna go in an all over machine quilting direction but I need to decide for sure.
And, while I was sewing yesterday, look what Chloe made…
She sat beside me at my sewing table and made this little beach scene using bits of fabric from my scrap bins and a pinking shears. You can see the water at the bottom of the picture, she used little cut up bits of orange perle cotton for the sand–and then the sun and cloud in the sky. And the little pink/white object in the lower right hand corner…it’s a surf board…she’s a crafty one my little Chloe. =)
Elonie hadn’t seen Chloe’s little project until I was snapping that picture above and let me tell you she was very impressed with big sister Chloe. She said, “Did Chloe make this?(I said yes) Wow!—Oh my Goodness!”–very impressed.
