It has been a very busy week here, so pretty much all I really finished was the last of the minis and a couple of RSC15 blocks. First up is the mini, which came out to about 20 by 22:
How darling is that? Our house is yellow with red shutters, so this is sort of modeled after ours. This is just a traditional house block with some borders. The house and the roof are string pieced, which I think made this a lot more interesting, plus it let me use up some tiny pieces. I cut the templates from paper with about a half-inch margin around them, then stitched the pieces to the templates and trimmed when they were full. I'm really happy with how it turned out! My favorite part is that tiny blue inner border. I think I have enough of that for a binding, too.
I also finished up the frame for the blue crumb star block for RSC15:
I also had just enough time this week to make up the purple one. It helps that I had all the frame pieces cut and some sections stitched together before I made the crumb star:
|Yikes! A lost point! I'll fix that right up!|
Gosh, I like how these are turning out! Here are the four that I have finished, just pinned to the fence:
Wow. I'm going to like this! And I'll be needing a bigger fence to photograph all of it!
That's the update from here! Hope everyone has a fun weekend planned. I am planning to go treat myself to a new pair of gardening gloves. Maybe I'll even get the nifty waterproof ones. It will be almost as good as having a new rotary blade!
Linking to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Angela at soscrappy, and also Finish it up Friday. Happy sewing!
