Busy keeping busy while waiting for a couple of Quilt Alongs to start, one today (the pattern was posted an hour ago) and the other on Sunday.
I made a couple of fabric containers, one using the 1 Hour Basket tutorial Jenn posted about last Friday on her blog, A Quarter Inch from the Edge. And the other I used a lamp shade to make a pattern (I didn't actually use the lampshade, just took measurements from it and used it to draw the circle for the bottom). The tube one is a bit too tall, but it works for rolled up pieces of fabrics. I could have made two... No special fabrics or batting, I quilted both the outside and lining pieces and they turned out fine. Also, on the basket, I used a single piece of fabric for the outside and a single piece for the lining, so no seam on the bottom. I was asked to make a bib for Finley so worked on that this morning. I used a great little pattern called Bibs in All Sizes from Fishsticks Designs.
I worked a little on my A Lovely year of Finishes goal.
Framed the blocks for Snap Shots and got the first two rows sewn together. While 'framing' I realized I didn't have the white needed so my snap shots don't have matting :)
That's been my week between Socials :) I'm linking up with Lorna's Let's Bee Social #80 at Sew Fresh Quilts. I hope your Thursday is a great one, be safe and share those smiles :)
