Time to Glam It Up!

Yesterday, I was able to finish appliqué-ing my DWR onto its blue back ground (Yay for a finish!). That means its time to get some diamonds (silver metallic fabric will also work) to glam this baby up! I’ll use the freezer paper technique to make the circle, which I’ll be using the finger hole pattern from Strike Out!.

I’m loving how its turning out! Now that I’m in the home stretch, I’m trying to find the best way to quilt it. I’m leaning towards outlining the rings then doing a crosshatch on the inside. What do you think? I would LOVE some suggestions from you guys!!

My Very Own WIP

Yesterday, I was finally able to finish my Joyful Harvest shop sampler! I’ll tell you the placemats turned out adorable…but I’ll have more for you on that later.

With the sample being done, I have time to focus on my own WIPs, such as the Tennessee Waltz quilt that has patiently been waiting in my sewing basket. But, alas, I may not get to the poor Waltz because a new quilt idea has been percolating in my head for a while and it is slowly engulfing my creative side.

I think a cute little farm scene would be adorable in all 30s repo fabrics… Can you see why this is taking over my mind? (Please ignore the icky picture; I have this baby hanging right next to my machine to inspire me to get things done and my sewing room has horrible lighting, as you can see.)

In the mean time, I will hopefully get to some of my other WIPs, just so the don’t feel left out.
What are you working on this week?
