A day spent sewing and some exciting news!

First the exciting news. 🙂  I was just checking emails and found out that my block I submitted for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Issue 4 (which goes on sale in November) will be included in the magazine. Yipee!!!  Doing a little happy dance.   The Quilts from the Crate photo that doesn’t show the center block — that’s the wallhanging I made from an extra block I made like the submission block so after the issue comes out I’ll be able to show you what that wallhanging truly looks like. 😉

I couldn’t decide what to sew on today and then saw the strike offs of a fabric line Hoffman Fabrics had sent me that I previously did a design for.  They are just sample size pieces so fat eights or a bit larger.  Not huge pieces to work with but I chopped them up to make the actual pattern I had drawn for them.  It will be large wallhanging / smallish lap size when done.  I’ve got all the blocks made and just need to set them together.

Here they laid out on the floor.  I may do some rearranging of blocks yet.  I need to go searching the stash for border fabrics too.   The original design was on point but I didn’t have enough fabric to do the setting portions so these will just be straight set.

And here’s the mittens I finished for the Camp Loopy 2 project – the pattern had to include cables.  These were different than straight cables – single strands of the cables interweave but it’s a bit hard to see on this yarn.

 These are very “straight” mittens – I prefer my mittens to have a bit more shaping to them (more stitches added after the cuff) so they are a bit roomier but they are soft and warm.
