*Did you enter my contest to help me decorate my graduation cap? Ends Friday!*
I accomplished a spring break quilting goal and a half! More than I expected, to be honest, with all the school work I've had to complete.
1. Made a CD holder for my car - I can't wait to use it on the way work tomorrow. Much easier than the usual stick-my-hand-into-the-compartment-and-try-5-CDs-until-I-find-the-one-I-want. Now I'll actually be able to see them.
I used the same tutorial as before, from Georgia Leigh. I picked out a bunch of fabrics that went well together (and of course, that I liked). You could easily do this with scraps and it only took me a couple of hours.My fiance has reported back and has found his to be extremely useful... I'm glad that my sewing could be of assistance =P
2. I made a star for the back of my Made in Cherry quilt. Technically, I didn't piece together the whole backing yet, but at least I made progress. I used my favorite purples and a mix of gray and purple solids - I quite like the scrappy look.
I know one of the seams doesn't line up very well but the others do and I'm not touching it! Haha. The seam ripper is, on a normal day, my best friend, but this is the most accurate I've ever been on a first try so I'm going to celebrate it. :)
I could easily see myself making a whole quilt with these stars. Scrappy. Rainbow. The ideas are turning. Like I don't have enough projects to work on right now!
After I finish the backing and start to quilt Made in Cherry (otherwise known as Flying Purple People Eater) I'll make a new list of goals.
And technically, as of this Friday, the only thing left I have to complete for my undergraduate career is a presentation on my 20 page paper (which was finished today). So, in the next few weeks, I hope to be quilting, and thus, blogging, much, much more!
