Needlework Tuesday - A looped up Tea Cosy
The pattern is free from Yarnspirations and uses cotton yarn,
Jelly Roll Quilt Magic by Kimberly Enmo. The first block went together nicely, though it's a wee bit small. I haven't trimmed yet and will wait till I piece the other blocks. Kimberly shows several settings, so no need to put the quarters together at this point.
I'd like to have this one all pieced and possibly quilted in time for my guild's final meeting of the season in early June. I want to encourage the members to join the sway I am hoping to host in September. I have something different in mind and I do think they will enjoy themselves.
I'll try and stay focused this week and finish something, but daughter is planning that I'll be sewing her a skirt (even though she knows how to sew and attended summer camp to learn proper techniques....). When she was tiny, I made lots of clothing for her. As she got older, she got picky and it was harder to find patterns she liked, so I made her quilts instead. Now she is getting an office job and needs appropriate clothing. It looks like it's going to be an interesting summer to say the least.
Do you sew clothing?
Mister Linky is waiting below.
