March was a very productive month. I was able to mend a
few items (snow pants and pajamas) as well as complete several projects and
prepare fabric for future ones.
We are welcoming several babies. I found this great tutorial from
Missouri Quilt Company on how to make baby blankets. I made
two of these and I love them. I will definitely keep them in mind for future
I have a great head-start on Christmas 2013 projects. In March I was
able to piece two table runner tops.
I was also successful in cutting all pieces for six additional table
runners, label the pieces and place in gallon bags sorted by recipient. This
will definitely make sewing up the next ones much faster. The good part of
using almost all of my pins for labeling the pieces is that I’ll need to get
through the pile quickly so I can get them back!
Finally, I worked on custom drum bags. I started over and created a much
simpler design for the bag. It is also reversible.
I was also able to stitch rip the original Native Hand Drum Bag #1
as it was too loose and I will need to make the shape reflect the one pictured a bit more. I'll get it sewn and show you in April.
