One girl, and two hours of crafting and sewing.
It really is amazing what you can do when you get in there with the intention of busting through a few projects! As proof I give you block number 26 of the needed 30 blocks in my soon to be new master bedroom quilt. The pattern is complex looking but deadly easy Wonky Logcabin block that will be set with white sashing and then a strip pieced border. With a little luck I will knock out the last block tomorrow afternoon since I only got 2 done today, since before that I was doing this...
My quilting ruler collection as been growing by leaps and bounds these days with no good way to store them. I searched the interent for ideas but most of them were table top solutions and that was something I am short of so did not want to give any of it up to storing my unruly ruler collection! This was a quick to sew project and if i get some requests I will do a quick tutorial for it. But basically it's 2 layers of stiff craft felt encased in some of my favorite vintage sheeting that I layered into pockets just right for keeping my rulers close by but out of the way! I like it so much I think I will make a second one of these to hold all my rotary cutters
And as a parting project I put the last touches of my Crafty-Girl Corkboard
This was a re-use/recycle project for a very dated but still serviceable corkboard that I had hanging around but did not want to use since it was struck with a rather large case of the uglies!
I knew I wanted a modern feel since it was going to go in my studio and more than that I wanted a really quick project so I used some heavy duty spray glue and coated the board and then laid on some random pieces from a partially used charm pack. I then took a page from the new slice and dice quilt blocks that you can see all over blogdome and bisected the area with some cute ribbon ( used stick glue on the back of that). I edged it out in the ribbon and bam!.. I was done and it's now hanging in my studio holding little bits of quilty inspiration!
Day1 is done! :)
