Progress in Unexpected Projects
I was waiting for the backing fabric and wadding to arrive for the disappearing hour glass quilt that I was showing you last week, so I moved on to a project that has been on my 'to do' list for several years now.
Finally I'll be able to gift an Easter mini quilt to my lovely SiL!
This is twice the size of the ones that I'd made previously. I have to confess that this is because I'd forgotten which direction I had to sew the side seams, and I'd already hand sewn the mini Dresden plate on!
This was my first attempt - another 3 incher. Thanks to Westwood Acres fabric for their free tiny Dresden pattern.
I got caught up in the Instagram fun of a #TinyDresden Party2019 of Deidra from Quilty Obsession. Lots of eye candy to be seen!
I'm thinking about making another style of disappearing hour glass quilt - but not until I've completed the first one, which I've now decided should be a quillow, so needs more work still to complete it! I'm off to decide on a design for the 'cushion' part of it.
Happy sewing, everyone!
