to this. I'm planning a quilt which will be 7 blocks by 7 blocks (80" square), so I'm just over halfway there in terms of making blocks. I'm really enjoying all the variety in the background squares (from the low volume charm swap hosted by Lori), but the background is looking a little too busy for me at this stage, so I plan to add in some even quieter fabrics in the next 24 blocks.
I've also been working on my item for the Modern She Made Swap. This is the large item - I've quilted it up and turned it into a cushion for my partner (I think I can say that without giving the game away!).
I am so happy with how the piecing turned out I think I will have to make another version for myself!
I've also been working on the small item - this is the beginnings of a pincushion - with my first attempt at hand quilting. I used perle 8 cotton and it was a bit of a learning curve (for example, I used a thimble, which I have never done before). I probably should have watched this fantastic Sarah Fielke video before I started, rather than once I finished, but never mind, the hand quilting has a mainly decorative function here. Apologies for the crappy instagram photo!
What are you working on this week?
