First of all thanks so much for the love for the Scrappy Trip quilt in the last post. And my personal male model. 😉
It’s Spring Break here this week. This is the first year we haven’t traveled during the break and it’s actually been a nice week to hang out with the kids and catch-up a little on other things. Like sleep. We’ve still been on the go a little, and one thing I finished this week was this cute little hand-sewn pincushion I stared a few weeks back at the Cabin Fever retreat.
I’ve decided I’m determined to do more hand-piecing. There’s something really therapeutic about it. The whole thing was hand-sewn. The pattern is by Messy Jesse and was in a Issue 17 of Love Patchwork and Quilting.
Here’s another project I’ve been cutting into over the past few days. This fabric is called Reel Time by Zen Chic for Moda. I’ll share what I’ve been working on next week.
In other fabric inspiration, this pretty bundle was picked out by Lynne from Lily’s Quilts for Westwood Acres’ I Want Her Stash Club. It’s been so fun to see the bundles that have already arrived this year. I’m in need of a few updated blacks, and these ones were especially fab.
Not fabric, but still ‘fiber art’ – check out this string art we saw at a local museum this week. (As part of the school break, we’ve been doing a little bit of “staycation” activities and visiting local museums, etc.) I’m such a sucker for anything in spectrum order lately, and I thought it was pretty cool. The picture does not do it justice – I don’t think you can get the scale of it from the picture, but it was in a huge skylight. I love when people make cool stuff.
Nature makes some pretty cool stuff too. Thanks Spring.
