OK, today I have tried to “design” my own paper piecing pattern. I am pretty sure that this pattern already exists but nevertheless I wanted to develop the idea and the pattern by myself. Just to be able to understand the process in the making of patterns for paper piecing. You know: From the basics to the more elaborate ones (one day, maybe).
This is the result:
I am not sure whether this is gonna be the quazillionst pillow or if I do a few more blocks and make a small quilt for our next baby.
… need a home.
The first one is made from Woodland Critters fabric. I had a sample piece and the fabric is so adorable that I wanted to use it. But as it was just about 5”x5” it was hard to come up with something to sew.
I added a small strip of orange fabric to get a reasonable sized piece to work with. It’s done in minutes and – though it could be improved – I am happy with it. It will be a surprise for a very nice person who happens to like the Woodland Critters fabrics just as much as I do.
And for me: I have to order more of the fabric asap. 🙂
The bag in the background is the new home for hexagons so I can take them with me and stitch them together whenever I want and wherever I am.
This weekend we have been to the Baltic Sea. Although it was really cold and windy, it was beautiful – as always. I love the sea, I love the ocean. No matter what time of the year.
This is my little man and the sea:
I hope you had a nice weekend, too.
I found these fabrics in one of my boxes and this Square in a Square Quilt Block is the first piece of my next project which will be a table runner.
Originally I wanted to sew a bib according to this tutorial. As you can see I have done that:
The bib is proudly presented by Frog.
Then, I have found a tutorial for an elegant pillow case in the current issue of Patchwork Spezial. As we are everything but elegant I modified the pillow and – voilà:
May I introduce? This is Karlson, the pillow monster. Or monster pillow?
The next time I’ll sew this pillow I will enlarge the eyes.
And if you are still afraid of the monsters under your bed, just give the monster in your bed a big hug.
My dear daughter asked for more pillows for the ‘cave’ under her bunk bed. Here we go:
I am already working on the next pillow. That’s the current status so far:
Sorry, the light in my sewing room is pretty bad in winter.
