Let's start with these two bee blocks that I made for the Trust Circle of the do.Good.Stitches bee. Liz asked us to make two "scrap jar" blocks using this tutorial.
Up next is a quilt top that I finally finished for a "long-overdue" gift. Gotta make the back and get quilting.
While I didn't work on this next block at the Sew-In, it's still a recent project. It's my entry to the QuiltCon Block Challenge. The rules were to create a modern-style block, using the colors in the QuiltCon logo.
Last week I found this Knook kit at Jo-Ann's Fabrics. I had heard about it from someone at work and the concept was interesting..."knit with a crochet hook". Now, I know how to crochet; but can't seem to grasp the concept of knitting. I thought maybe this would make the "knitting" concept a little more understandable so I can pick up real needles one day. Have you heard of this? or tried it?
Finally, the STLMQG's Inspiration Challenge is due this coming Saturday. I'm not gonna lie, the looming deadline does miracles for jumpstarting creativity. I can't show you much because it's sort of a surprise; but what I can show you is my "free-motion" quilting.
So, I know...what's so special. Well, it's my first time trying it on a real quilt instead of practice pieces. I figured since the Inspiration Challenge quilt was a managable size, it would be good "practice".
There are uneven stitches, several areas of overlapping loops and a few things I wish I could hide; but at least I finally did it. Practice makes Perfect and hopefully I'll have the guts to do this again.
