SMQG BOM- Almost Done

Another installment of the SMQG BOM!

SMQGBOM-Aug-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

I had grand intentions of finishing this last year… I’m almost done, just need to the add the back, but until then, I thought I’d give you an update of the second to last border. It barely fits on my fence anymore!

SMQGBOM-Aug-HST-ImFeelinCrafty

So this last border was a million little half square triangles and it totally knocked me off my rythm…

Making the HST’s wasn’t the problem! I made them at a retreat and they went super fast…. I used Debbie’s tutorial on making multiples and it worked great! But then sewing them together and onto the quilt just turned me off for some reason. No idea why. I made the HST’s and shelved the project.

All in all, once I finally sat down to do it, it didn’t take long at all. of course… My family is very excited to see this one getting some action again!

Hopefully the final installment of this quilt will be coming soon!

 

Two in One Pouches

I’m so not following the blogging trends of when you blog about things! Ha!

Pouches-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

I didn’t make too many Christmas presents, but I did make a few… And since it’s almost February, I thought I’d show them! Well, the Alabama Pillow was one… So, next up is the Two In One pouch by Sotak Handmade. I made them at the same time, assembly line style. One was gifted to the kiddo’s teacher, the other for me!

Pouches-Side-ImFeelinCrafty

Years ago at one our SMQG retreats, we had a white elephant and I won one of these! Yay! Then it was stolen from me…. In honest white elephant style… But I will not forget the pain of it being ripped from my hands! Ha!! And now I have my very own, in awesome Cotton and Steel Fabric!

The pattern calls for fusible fleece and I feel like it’s makes it a little too puffy. If I had quilted it, it would probably be fine. So next time I’m thinking about either quilting it or ditching the fleece and just using a heavy interfacing.

Pouches-Open-ImFeelinCrafty

I love the two pockets! But it opens…. And it just seems like wasted space! It needs pockets in here. Or a little mini note holder… Or to stitch together the two sides, so it becomes a middle pocket. So many options! Next time, I’m going to make it more user friendly in the middle.

It was a pretty quick sew, perfect for a teacher gift! And I’ve enjoyed Finally having my own! I’ll keep you posted on any adjustments I make on the next round!
