I love holly hocks and have been trying to get them to grow. Maybe I have a black thumb, but I thought that everything was supposed to grow easily in Oregon. Well, I finally have a holly hock plant that has actually gotten about 2 feet high and has several gorgeous blooms on it - double blooms!! I am seriously going to plant more seeds so I can get more of them growing. I just love them.
When I get a project finished (or at least basted), I like to switch to something else for at least a couple days. I have had some panels of doll clothes for years and I decided to get some of them sewn up. This first one is a camping outfit. The hat is too big for her head, but maybe on another doll it will fit better.
She even has a back pack!
The next outfit is a pajama and robe set with an overnight bag. Please ignore her hair. I use this doll to try on the clothes only.
I like to get scraps from a chest at my LQS and sometimes the scraps are pretty big. Recently, I found these 4 pictures of bears there and thought they would be perfect for a baby quilt. All the fabrics on the front are from the scrap chest, except for the border. This is a donation quilt, so the binding is sewn on for more sturdiness.
And finally, this one is from Jo Morton's book, Jo's Little Favorites. I had been looking at this pattern for a while and finally decided to make it. The pattern calls for strips of one inch, but I increased the size to 1 1/4 inch, so it measures 21 1/4" square. If I made it with one inch strips, it would measure 14 3/4" square, which is pretty small.
Now I'm in the mood to make some more log cabin blocks and might make this same pattern, only longer for a table runner. I have plenty of fabrics to make all the blocks different.
I don't know where the week went! Here it it Saturday already - time to do some house cleaning.
I noticed that Barb was the guest for a quilt guild via Zoom. I really miss having our guild meetings in person and having them via Zoom would be better than nothing. Are any of your guilds doing that? If this pandemic continues much longer, we should definitely do this. The monthly meeting and going to quilt shows are some things that I really miss a lot!!
Take care and stay healthy!
