First off, the latest project for the Zakka 2.0 sew along on Flickr. The block pattern is "Books for Baby" from Ayumi Takahashi's book Patchwork, Please! I enlarged it slightly but left out the sashing and made a 17-inch pillow sham (for a 16" insert.)
The open pages of the books read: "Good night," "Sweet dreams," "She tied," and "Loose threads."
the hexies I learned to English-paper-piece at the MplsMQG summer Sew-B-Q. Underneath the flap is a pink zipper. It's machine-quilted.
Next up is my long-dormant challenge project. No longer an Unfinished Object!!! The center block is a foundation-pieced pattern by Cyrille of BubbleStitch. You should check out her patterns; they are my favorites! This one is from her Goldilocks set but I call her, Madrona.
This pillow cover is about 21 inches square; the insert is a 20" duck down pillow from IKEA.
Originally, I planned a twin-sized quilt to go with this pillow. It would have more houses and two girl blocks. I still think about finishing that quilt idea but then again, I'd like to close out this Work-in-Progress. It feels good to be finished.
Here's my next WIP. Do you recognize the fabric?
See you on the flip side.
