Finishing the Piping - Tutorial

| No Comments

I have been spending some time making Swoon bags.  I made an Ethel (no piping) and then a Betty with piping.  I read the piping tutorial that's up on the Swoon site which was great, but I really didn't like how my piping ended on Betty.

Gates Progress

I have been sewing a lot, but I have not been writing at all.  Gates is a little more complicated than I expected.  Here's some of what I did today:

 

I put the windows on 5 of the 10 building squares.

"I Want My Hat Back..."

I used a lot of techniques in this quilt.

 

 

A Border and Soles

| No Comments

 

Yesterday I put the first border on.  I realized that I needed some sort of break from all of the color, so I sewed a 1.5" black border all the way around the quilt top.

It seems like I have done little over break.  When you look at the pictures below, all of the seams I pulled out are not obvious.  I sewed the jeans down (partially) 3 times.  I basted the flyers on then sewed them on for real.  The soles, I finished today.  Before I can put the soles on, I need to be sure the jeans are where I want them to be because once the soles go down, I do not want to pull them off.

Break Time!

The craft fair worked out pretty well.  I sold quite a few Holiday Cards and a couple of record cards.  I even sold a shirt!

 

 

Holiday Fair

| No Comments

I have been working on making things to sell at a craft fair next weekkend.  If you are interested, I will be at Baere Brewing Saturday 12/20 selling greeting cards. I will have some holiday record cards, card packs, holiday cards, and love notes.  I'm hoping to have time to make up some fabric flowers too.

I spent some time on the flyer portion of the quilt.  This is the part that represents the wall.  Look at the photo below.  The flyers go where the ugly tannish color is.
