November Finished Projects

Ok I have never made a mosaic and didn't actually make this one either. I asked my daughter to help me and like a wizard she click, click, clicked and tada there is a pretty mosaic. I am gonna need help again for the next one......Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day @ Lily's Quilts.

Hexie Love!!

       Why have I never heard of EPP and hexagons?   I am in love with these little guys!  I picked up some Flirt at my LQS and started in on this charm pack.  I take the train to work twice a week and it certainly is an easy take along project.  Gonna make a zippered bag when done.....

These are 3/4 inch, which is deceiving because they are bigger, it must mean that if you used the paper as a template and then folded under 1/4 on all sides it would be 3/4".  Not really sure but I still love them!!!!

Another new favorite.....Riley Blake Sweetest Thing.  I really liked it in the pictures, I love it in person.  I picked a rollie pollie, never had one before, 2 packs of charm squares and 5, 1/2 yard cuts. Oh and I got 25% off Black Friday @ Fat Quarter Shop..... Can't wait till the weekend to make something with it!!!   Any suggestions?

New Fabric, New Project!

Notting Hill - Fat Quarter Bundle Teal          I just got a package in the mail this week from Intrepid Threads, Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry.  It is a bit yellower/greener than I expected so I ran over to New Moon Textiles and picked up some Kona solids in teals and cream.

      Gonna try some improv piecing/ cutting and see what I come up with.  The finished projects need to be a table runner, kitchen rug and a plastic bag dispenser.  Included is my inspiration links.....My actual mat does not look like any of my inspiration...?  Oh well, I'm happy with the results.  I used the Matrix FMQing from Leah Day.

 Made strip sets and randomly cut them up and sewed back together.
2 layers of fusible felt and 2 layers of fusible batting with canvas as the backing.   I steam pressed this very flat and then quilted it.

 Trimmed and bound.
