Sneak Peak

Weather this past weekend was chillier than its been so it was a perfect time to cut into some beautiful fall fabrics from the Black Cat Crossing line

I'm making two projects for a blog hop later in October.  Here is a sneak peek of a portion of one of them.

Happy paper pieced pumpkin!

From the farm....

I'm thinking about calling this quilt North Carolina in honor of the wonderful state in which I live.   Compared to last week's, these were relatively quick (although still had my seam ripper in use!)

#27 is called Darting Birds.  I like this one.  I had trouble understanding the paper piecing pattern before I  began sewing so I drafted my own.  (It worked!)

#28 is called Duck and Ducklings

#29: Economy.   I'm doing the blocks in the order that they appear in the book and was rewarded today with an easy one - took about 5 minutes!!!

Fabric is Vintage Modern.

Happy Stitching!

elementary geese

This month's challenge for Another Lovely Year of Schnibbles Little Bites pattern which is called Whit!   I wanted to use a mini-charm pack of Moda Elementary and only had one so I made half of a Whit.

I am thinking about a top and bottom border wide enough for this to finish as a square.   I keep thinking it looks too small but then remind myself this was the whole idea - use what I have and create a mini-mini.

What do you think? 

Happy Stitching!

mini baby geese

Measuring a mini 2" by 1 1/4".

Aren't they sweet?  These cuties are made from a mini-charm pack of Sweetwater Elementary and a bella solid called Parchment that I had in my stash.

A favorite sewing notion is the clothes pin.  So handy!

They are for this month's Another Lovely Year of Schnibbles Little Bites pattern which is called Whit!  There are 3 settings possible.  Looking forward to assembling these beauties into a mini.

Happy Stitching!
