Christmas family gatherings will continue for another week for us, so sewing activities come in the form of stolen moments. Here is some of what I’ve done in the last two weeks.
This ironing pad was a bonus project sheet given to us at one of the Civil War Chronicles Club meetings. I decided it would be easier to transport than the rigid ironing surface I usually take. I even had some fabric left over from the iron tote I made a couple of years ago.
My design wall has the start of a Valentine’s Wall Hanging on it. The design was published in the February 2010 issue of McCall’s Quilting Magazine and is by Judy Block. I had marked it as a possible project for our quilt club's heart challenge, but ended up submitting a different project. Since I recently put up a quilt hanger, I hope to make a series of seasonal quilts I can rotate. The design calls for some additional applique, and I am beginning to prepare flower petals, leaves and stems.
Also on my design wall are four-patches that will eventually be incorporated into my Jacob’s Ladder borders.
