Results from the Sew-In

I didn't get up to the studio until 8pm so I started a bit later than I had intended.  I grabbed a cold Diet Rite from the fridge, put the first season disc of Grey's Anatomy in the DVD player and started sewing.  This is the first thing I completed

I have decided that I am just going to leave the pinwheels "naked" (no raw edge appliquéd circles) and now just need to find something for the binding and backing.  I like the bright colors against the Kona white.  I also like the fact that the baby quilt is non-gender specific.  Wouldn't it be darling in a circus themed nursery?

I need a gift for my mother and she has asked for a weekender tote.  I really hope she likes this.  All I finished last night was the front and back of the bag.  This morning I made the handle, flap and sewed the outer bag.  Now I have to find something for the inner pockets and lining.

My favorite quilt shop is having a 25% off everything sale so I am going shopping as soon as I finish weed whacking the backyard.  I hope I can find the fabrics that I want to complete both of these projects!


  1. loving the pinwheels! the bright colors are so cheery.

    I spent a little time this afternoon pretending it was Friday night. :P
