I neglected the blog while we were getting all of the sale orders out. It took us a full week to fill all of the orders.
Chipper by Tula Pink is in and it is gorgeous... of course! I took these pics with my new phone I think it works better than my DSLR
I decided to make a knit blanket with reverse applique as described in Alison Glass' book Modern Applique. Rather than using a solid piece of fabric as she did in the book I decided to piece the middle layer so that different fabrics would show when I did the cut outs. I used Fibs and Fable and cut 10 inch squares then made a simple patchwork out of it.
These are my new pot holders I made them with little charms I got from my Sewtopia Swag Bag they are almost done just binding to go.
Last but not least I picked fabrics for a class I am taking with Elizabeth Hartman at Sewtopia Atlanta. I rarely stash fabrics from the shop because if I want to make something there is always something new to pick up and make with,.. but I fell in love with 4 collections this year that I had to make sure I kept a bit for myself. Rhoda Ruth, Blueberry Park, Sun Prints 2016, and The Lovely Hunt. This is a mix of three of them. I will use The Lovely Hunt for my class with Denyse Schmidt (Free Wheeling Single Girl). It makes me happy to use these fun beautiful fabrics.
