To keep up with the Sew Kid at Heart bee, I made Ariel's spiderweb block. She sent a great set of fabrics and the tutorial she had us use was really straight forward. I can't wait to see this one done since it's going to be another stunner! Also, if you want some seriously cute fabric and illustrations, you have to see her etsy shop. My favorite is this beautiful illustration of a sewing machine and then has an actual quilt block coming out it.
For Traveling Threads, SweetLibertyGrace sent out fabrics from Michael Miller's Whimsy line (love the blues in this line!!) and asked for block from Quilters Cache. I picked Carol's Star and I loved this pattern. It's paper piecing, which I really like doing, but looking at it after it was done, I realized one of the pieces is reversed! I don't even know how I could've done that... I didn't have enough of the white print to fix it, so I suppose it's just going to be Amish-inspired! (with an "intentional" mistake) sigh.
I'm hoping to sew a bunch of things before I travel for the holidays, but end of the semester teaching stuff keeps getting in the way! My Christmas quilt is just begging to be worked on! Wish me luck!
