Friday I got this amazing full kit for Wind in the Whiskers in the mail from Nancy's Notions! I've wanted this quilt so bad ever since I first saw it last summer, and I picked it up on clearance! I'll have to work out some kind of schedule to keep me on track for this.
Thursday evening I went to the AccuQuilt Club class at My Girlfriend's Quilt Shoppe. The project was a pillow using the Half Hexagon Die. I decided to use the scraps from my Quilting 101 Christmas quilt so I could make a matching pillow.
I got all my pieces cut out during class and figured out my layout - and I even managed to get the first two rows sewn together. The pillow uses the middle size hexi.
I also cut some of the smaller hexi's as long as I was it it. Saturday I played with them and made two little pin cushions - they just need to be stuffed.
And Sunday I put the rest of the pillow together! I'm so happy to have a class project completed the same week I took the class!!
I had a helper on my lap while I was attempting to work on this!
Saturday I finished the top of the Be My Valentine pillow. (I signed up for the darker colorway)
And I got the center section done of the Winter Whimsy pillow, which I finished up on Sunday. This pattern was free when you signed up for the 6 month club, so it didn't come with the fabric. I used scraps for the hats and noses and picked out new fabric for the rest of the pillow. I LOVE batiks, and used two of them in the boarders. Even though I don't care much for the color blue, I really love this snowflake pattern, and the touches of purple are really pretty.
I even got the pillow insert finished on Monday!
Now I just need to quilt the tops and put the backs on!
I took some time out to cut 96 1/2 square triangles with my AccuQuilt to make a cover for my serger (kitties keep trying to un-thread it!) to use as Leaders and Enders. I got more than half of them sewn together this weekend!
I also spent some time working on my Snowglobe Mantle - and I finished part 3!! Now I just have the beads to add and it'll be finished!!
By the way, this is the view under my Q- snaps! LOL
It was a great weekend - and I'm already looking forward to the next three-day weekend to see how much more I can get done!!
I hope everyone else had a great weekend too!
