Recent Sewing

Amazingly, I'd have a little time to sew lately. The Pirate still goes to daycare during the day and there are occasions when the Baby actually sleeps and I get to do my own thing. I'm SO gonna miss that when I go back to work.

This first picture is a little set of coasters I made as a gift. I wanted to try out this quilt as you go looking thing, without using a ton of fabric, and this seemed like a great idea. Four tiny little quilts later, I have coasters. I think I'll make a few more sets of coasters and then perhaps some placemats or a table runner for myself.

Next up is the quilt I made for my mom 8 years or so ago. This was one of the first quilts I ever attempted. I made the top, pinned the layers and then for whatever reason just stopped. A couple years ago I pulled it out and quilted most of it. Yesterday I decided to see just how much more work it needed. It appears my bobbin ran out of thread approximately 12 inches from the end of the next to last row of quilting. I finished it up, made some binding out of fabric I had on hand, and it's done! Mom, if you're reading this, SURPRISE! (I post about it because I'm pretty sure she does not read my blog on a regular basis. If you do... it's in the mail.) The back is a white on white floral.

I still need to post about the baby's room and I made a diaper bag that turned out really nice, so expect more crafty stuff soon!
