I had bought the Castle Peeps prints for this quilt a while ago, but no coordinating solids, and then I pieced the top pretty quickly and was too lazy to go out to buy more fabric (or wait for some to arrive in the mail), so I tried to find stuff in my stash to fill in the gaps. I think that’s why it might look a little funky, and it made me want to have more solids in the house. I was super stoked when I found out that the little bit of Joel Dewberry’s woodgrain print matched the greens in the Castle Peeps fabric perfectly, though!
Baby ballet shoes
Dawnybear arrived yesterday and tried them on, and I’m pleased to report that they do fit her! I’m going to replace the lavender ribbon with black elastic — she kept undoing the bows when she was practicing crawling.
I don’t have any in-progress projects that I’ve actually worked on this week, so I’ll substitute my want-to-dos.
Want to do!
Practice teapot block
I got into my first quilting bee — Sew Happy Geek’s Sew Bee Joyful bee — and I’m super stoked about it! I’m hoping to ask for teapot paper-pieced blocks for my month, and I’m really excited about trying to make a practice block.
Tea kettle tablerunner
I bought a tea kettle tablerunner kit from Amy at During Quiet Time. I love her handmade prints! I was going to start this after I finished my last project, but then I got all hepped up about my quilting bee. 😀
Blossom shoulder bag
I wanted to make Amy Butler’s Blossom shoulder bag sometime this month, and I do have the pattern pieces cut out, but this keeps getting shoved back because of the other things I want to do more.
