My daughters quilt top progress, a bag and my siggy blocks!!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day. I did get some sewing done today. First, I adjusted the sleeves on my MIL`s new winter coat. The sleeves were too long and the opening too big. So, I fixed it for her. She was very happy.
After she left, I started working on a little bag. I was still working on it when my daughter got home from school. She wanted to keep working on her Blush quilt top that she had started the night before. She had 36 rail blocks sewn and just needed to start sewing them into rows with the plain blocks. She did all the sewing on these blocks herself. She did do some of the ironing, but I did have to go over the blocks too myself. I cut out all the strips for her. I am not yet comfortable with her using my rotary cutter. I want her to keep all her fingers. She sewed all the blocks in rows. All she has to do is sew the rows together. I think she is doing really well. She is so excited about sewing with me. We were like two peas in a pod, last night and today. Two sewing machines on the table and us sewing at the same time. She talked non-stop the entire time and I had a big smile on my face. It was a lot of fun. So here are the rows she sewed today.
I made a little bag while she was sewing. Its nice to make little projects that can be done in one day. I used some Jennifer Paganelli -Dance with me, fabric to make the bag. It is so bright and cheery. I really like it. I used a vintage button on it. It adds a little bling to the bag.
Last night, I worked on my modern siggy blocks. I have half of them done. These are so cute. I just love these blocks. I think I am going to make myself more blocks like this for a more vintage quilt. These are so fast to make. I love them.
I have enjoyed my two days off. I have one more to go, then back to work for 6 days. hopefully I will have the chance to sew a bit more tomorrow. I have a lot of stuff to do though. So, we will see.
