Weekend Sewing

I was going to start this post by saying I didn't get a whole lot of time in for sewing projects this past weekend, but as I added photos, I realized that would be a lie.  Let's get down to business, shall we?

This pile of hexie goodness will morph into an Open Wide Pouch (tutorial courtesy of Anna at Noodlehead).  I have some pretty grand plans with this bad boy.  I'd like to add a pocket on the inside to hold my little snips and a matching needlebook and a little tiny pincushion.  But first I need to survive pouch construction.  Anna makes it look easy, so it's promising!

This guy is the second of the two commissioned baby blankets I started working on last week.  He's all quilted and currently getting some binding.

A wee little sketch of a mini art quilt that has been floating around in my head.  I'm happy that it's on paper now.  Gotta work out the specifics, and then it's go-time!

This last photo is the UFO quilt I pulled out to finish and donate as a part of Swim, Bike, Quilt's 100 Quilts For Kids.  Click the link or the button below for more details!  The top was pieced, but I got it cleaned up and trimmed down, the backing cut, and the binding prepared.  Now it's ready for quilting and binding.

I also got in a little more retail therapy.  A fat quarter bundle of FMF, some Amy Butler Lark, a few colors of chunky #5 perle cotton (I adore the chunk!) and some books!  Aneela Hoey's Little Stitches and Rashida Coleman-Hale's Zakka Style.

Most of my sewing this weekend wasn't in front of the machine and I didn't pull off any finishes, so it felt like I didn't do much.  But seeing it all laid out here is proof that I did.  I shall give myself a pat on the back.

What about you?  Did you get anything done?  Or just worked on?  I'd love to see it - link in the comments!


  1. Your little pouch is going to be adorable. Love the hexies!

    1. Thanks Heather! I'm dying to finish it...I need to get these other quilts bound though!

  2. That pouch is goingo to be super cute!! Can't wait to see how it's finished. Ya, not much done huh??? Wonder what it looks like when there is "much done" :)
