WIP Wednesday - July 23rd

http://www.freshlypieced.com/

I know there is technically no WIP today but darnnit I am sharing anyway because for the first time in weeks I actually did something... and it's still summer even! lol

I joined the Tessellation SAL from Sew Sweetness, using the gorgeous Tessellation pattern from Allison Glass. This is my second pattern from her and I absolutely love her patterns!

So far we cut out the triangles for triangle A for week 1


I really need a different sewing table because this gray background messes with my photos! Its the purple pack of FQs from Kona. I believe its called Purple People Eater.

For week 2 we are assembling the B triangles. I am half way done with them, they each need two more fabrics.


I have also been working on my Quilty Stitches stitch along, and I am loving the progress!


So, I am off now. I want to finish these B triangles as the girls and I will be gone all weekend and I want to stay on time! Happy sewing!

I am also playing along for the first time in

Blog Makeover!

I have had a wonderful summer with my girls but I am about ready for them to go back to school now! lol I miss sewing and blogging and having me time! I am so ready that I decided to spruce up my blog with a happier, fresher look! I am so ready to go!

My friend Cornelia and I will be starting up a regular weekly co-hosting project together late next month so keep your eyes open for that as well!

In the mean time.... here are a few glimpses of our summer so far! Enjoy the rest of yours!

Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt reveal

I didn't realize I completely forgot to share the mini quilt that I made and sent to my partner. So, here she is :)

I reduced the Feathers paper pieced pattern down to 75% and made a few of them.






I really love the way it turned out and I was proud to share it and send it off. This is the first time I sent someone a quilt other than my good friend so I was a bit nervous about the quality of my work and whether the stitches were good enough etc... but in the end I felt good about it.

I am so glad I did this swap! I think it helped me grow some as a quilter. I honestly can not wait for another one!
