Working on this cute little set i'm making for a friends shower gift! She's having a baby girl the end of January and i will be making the little gal a quilt but her shower is the first weekend of November and i just don't have time to get it done for then! So i'm whipping up a set of four fabric nesting bowls from a cuppa and a catch up, as well as a divided basket from Noodlehead.
I have one more fabric bowl to make, the pearl bracelet will be the outside and the lavender stripe will be for the inside. And the divided basket is going to be Kona Steel on the outside with that newsprint fabric for the pocket and i found a cute Little Golden Books print that i'll be using for the inside! I'll share more details along with all modifications when i finish up!
So what have i been working on? Trying to get caught up with my Penny Sampler! I'm five blocks behind on the precise piecing portion of the class and i now need to make two paper pieced teacups and a whole whack of "Penny Squares", little squares that sit above my top row of diamonds as well as being scattered around the quilt in threes.
So i've been in fabric pulling mode! I think i may have already mentioned that i'm super excited to have started the paper piecing portion of this class, but really... how awesome is that little teacup! And how awesome is it going to be made with the gorgeous birds from Waterfront Park! Who wouldn't want a tea service in those birds? The other stacks are for my whirl block and my stacked pine blocks. Now to figure out the fabrics for the rest!
High fives for doing what i want!
(you know, around the normal quadrillion things i have to do on a daily basis!)
