As usual I’m a day behind, but I have got a little pink to show. I pulled together some of the not so hot pink sample squares of various sizes around 1.5inch and stitched them together and teamed them with some turquoise to make a little sleeping bag for a bear that I’ve also to make for DD. It’s a gift for her birthday which is on Wednesday this coming week. She’ll be 23!!! I’ll post a picture of the bear once I’ve made it but meanwhile I used one of my softies, a Jellycat bunny which DD bought for me, to model the sleeping bag for the pictures.I followed Connie’s tutorial on her blog Freemotion by the River here. Thank you Connie.
Here is the back. Don’t look to close at the piecing.. it was haphazard. I tried out my Sizzix Big Shot for the first time and added these flowers to hide the worse miss-matched seams and then used ‘scribbly’ free motion quilting/applique. What a lot of fun that technique is.
Today I settled down to some serious more precise piecing of a Dear Jane block.
The pink squares finish at 3/4ths inch and the sashing finishes at 1/4ths inch! I also added sashing to the right side of this block and to the one I made last week. Then I sashed and joined up 4 blocks from row B. So a little progress.
This is all my stitching for this past week. I have done a little Tunisian Crochet but I still have to finish the sample square which will be used as a wash cloth. I need to go into the Craftsy classroom and see how to bind off.
Now if you’d like to see what others have done for this week’s Rainbow Scrappy Challenge then go take a look on Soscrappy’s blog here.
Have a great week!
