The first one I made is called Autumn Patches and finishes at 14 x 19. A nice table topper.
Next I made Simplicity. It finished at 15 x 18.
Last I made Dutch Treat. It finishes at 12 x 26.
Sew, those are 3 of the Snap Sacks I made so far. Take a good look at them and see which one is pieced wrong. Yup, wrong. I did not notice till I had it all done. How did that happen? Ha! It said to piece according to the "picture" and I followed a diagram in the directions that was for pressing seams. Dang! I was not about to rip out binding, quiting and rip it all apart. So it will remain wrong. Lesson learned. Did you figure it out which one??
I also made other small things. Such as this dresden candle mat.
I had made another one of these in Christmas fabrics this past December but, I did not take a picture of it. :(
A friend had shown me paper piecing and I found a pattern for a pin cushion and made this. It is not done yet. I am waiting till I get home to finish and fill it.
I really like the paper piecing and would love to make this block much bigger. It finished at 5x5.
I have another small quilt I am still working on. I have it all pieced and I am hand quilting it. I will show a picture once that is done.
We have been enjoying sunny and warm weather here in Biloxi. Although, yesterday (Sunday) it was 3 degrees warmer at home, in Wisconsin, than it was here. What's up with that? They have been having very unusual warm weather for March. I wonder what that means for April or what our summer will be like.
We leave here this Friday and start our trek home. Plan to be home in the first week of April.
We have errands to finish up, friends to say farewell to and getting the coach ready to roll. Not much sewing will be done this week.
I want to give a big THANK YOU to Denise at http://daneesey.blogspot.com/ for spreading the word about my blog. Hugs to you, girlfriend. We have never met but it sure feels like we have been friends forever.
Till next time.
