I am so excited to have my sewing machine back and am absolutely dreading teaching this fall semester that I have been getting a lot of sewing done (and not much blogging)! First off we have a quilt my mom commissioned me to make for her cousin who is getting married. I tried to be good and use some stuff from my stash, hence the background changes. Oh well. I have until September to finish this one.
I have also started making food to freeze so I have tasty things to eat when I am too busy teaching to cook. First off, homemade pita bread using 1/3 whole wheat flour. Yum!
Then some steak fingers with roasted veggies, mashed potatoes, and red cabbage coleslaw.
Oh yeah, back to sewing. Here is a sashiko panel I stitched up. I'm working on adding some super secret applique.
I also started working on some Moda Friendship Sampler blocks. I am going to try my best to provide links to patterns and color codes for the fabric I use. Eventually there will be 20 blocks made (of the available 31 patterns), but they are not going to be made in numerical order. I am making them as my LQS has the Bella solids I want to use.
Block 2: Daffodil (Bella 9900 250) and Clementine (Bella 9900 209)
Block 6: Cobalt (Bella 9900 227) and Kiwi (Bella 9900 189).
Block 8: Peacock (Bella 9900 216) and Amelia Pink (Bella 9900 166)
Block 12: Daffodil (Bella 9900 250) and Grey (Bella 9900 83)
Block 24: Kiwi (Bella 9900 189) and Aqua (Bella 9900 34).
Block 25: Bright Turquoise (Bella 9900 226) and Grey (Bella 9900 83).
Block 29: Fuchsia (Bella 9900 190) and Grey (Bella 9900 83).
