I had to put a few things on hold while work was busy in the last month, and a number of little projects or quilt blocks were started and finished without mention, so I thought I’d share them here.
I made this zippy pouch for my little sister for her birthday. She wanted something she could put her kindle in when traveling, and I knew this was the perfect time to bust out the typewriter fabric. I picked these typewriter prints up from Brenda when she had them in her shop for about 2.5 seconds a couple of months ago. I absolutely love them! Plus, I think they work wonderfully with my Hope Valley fabric. I may be a little obsessed with this line, and stocked up now that it’s out of print.
Next I made these scrappy blocks for Deb. She linked to this tutorial from Don’t Call Me Betsy. This was the first time I had worked with half square triangles, and I can see why people get hooked on making these! I would love to make a quilt out of these blocks in the future. I’m not sure when I’ll have time, but I *may* have stocked up on some neutral gray fabrics from Pink Castle recently with the hopes of using them in this quilt!
And, I cut into a lovely pile of fabric for a new quilt that I’ll share here soon. I know I say this frequently, but I think it’s my new favorite!
