In the Works {Update}

Keeping it real…I have made progress since my last post, though not as much as I hoped. At least its moving in the right direction.

So what’s happening…

From the releasing pattern front, I have managed to release the 3 pattern of 4 patterns (Abstract Triangles, Daughters Love and Altitudinal Ecosystem) with Mad Dash coming the first week in October. So overall completed all that I set out to do in September. YAY!!!

From a project perspective, they have all moved forward.

Sew Ready to Play Blog hop – The mastermind project, completed and posted a tutorial on Monday.

Mad Dash – binding is underway. I had some issues, with wonkiness when machine binding so switched to hand stitching it. I think its related to the pressure of the foot while stitching through 2 layers of batting. Only one side to go and this should be finished before the weekend.

Sunday Best – My favorite project at the moment, and I finally got over the fear of what to do with the quilting and decided to just start. After all, a finished quilt is better than an unfinished one. Right??!! Here’s how I started…

I really love this block as a whole:

Orange Creamsicle – all the blocks for the top are now complete. All hand-stitched. I just need to hand-stitch all the straight seams. This is slightly modified from what I posted on Instagram (IG), as I changed one of the blocks backgrounds for more balance (top right).orangecreamsicle_top
Lastly…
Directional Lines – Is a new project start but has a deadline of October 14th. It’s my #whatshadeareyou for RJR fabrics project. It is another improvisation project. Can I say I love this already and I have only done 8 lines.
