I've been filling my time with a couple of little projects since finishing Chapel Glass (and the pattern). I had nice, uniform scraps from my Chapel Glass quilt, and I thought they would make a perfect little preemie charity quilt. It's nothing fancy, but I think it shows off the gorgeous fabrics beautifully. I had some sweet green tiny polkadots in my stash, and finished it off with a scrappy binding. It always makes me happy when every bit of fabric gets used up! The finished quilt measures 41" x 45." (Please forgive me for not braving the frigid temperature and howling wind for an outdoor photo)
I also buckled down and made myself a fabric name tag for guild meetings and events. You would be shocked to know how much I procrastinated in making this little thing. You know I despise hand sewing, and I'm a little ashamed to admit that less than an hour of hand work almost prevented me from making it. All in all, I'm pleased with the way it turned out though, and I have to say that the hand sewing wasn't too onerous.
I have also started a new quilt, and it will be a large twin size. I've made a little bit of progress on it, but not really enough to show yet, so you'll have to settle for seeing the fabric pull. This is a bundle of Anna Maria Horner's LouLouThi, along with several Amy Butler prints and a few others. I love the colors in this bundle and can't wait to show you how the quilt is taking shape.
It seems like forever ago that we partied last, so I'm super thrilled to share the highlights with you to refresh your memory!

I can't wait to see what you've been up to in your sewing space these last couple of weeks. I hope you've had a little time out of the chilly weather with a warm beverage in hand, playing with fabric!
