I can't believe it's been 10 days since I posted! I have been quite busy with having a garage sale last Friday & Saturday, getting the leftovers ready for the Salvation Army, etc. It seems like every day this week I've been running around and not doing as much sewing as I want to do, but I am working on things.
First of all, I want to thank you all for the many sweet comments that I received on my last post.
I recently showed a new doll bed that I received from a friend. Below are the blocks I'm making to put on the bed. The pattern is from Kathleen Tracy's Remembering Adelia book. I reduced the orange peel shape because I didn't want my quilt as big as hers. I am appliquéing them onto a variety of shirtings. The ones in the picture have not been sewn together except the lower left four. I used the spray starch method to prepare the shapes for sewing.
I made another table runner similar to one that I sold in my Etsy shop and it is ready to be quilted (as soon as I get my sewing machine back from being serviced).
Another table runner made with Jo Morton's fabric.
I have started prepping my applique baskets for April and thanks to Joanne's suggestion, I sewed a basting stitch around the curved base on each side of the basket and it worked great to get a good smooth fold over of that part. I also bought the template plastic that you can iron on and it is much better.
That's about it for this week. I hope you all have a great weekend!
PS: I have posted something on my secret blog (for those of you have access).
