Herringbone Clutch & More

Hey Guys!

Today I had a great time!  I made another clutch, finished up a block for my First Modern Quilt BOM, basted Cloud Song (for the third time) and hung out with a sewing friend.  I put almost every safety pin I could find in that darn quilt.  I will once again attempt quilting it with hopes of no bunching.  Have any of you had bunching problems?  This is a first for me and is VERY frustrating.  I have been working on projects at my new favorite place (Fabricate Studios) and working on another quilt for my Happy Husband.  As we watched TV on Sunday and Monday night I worked on his blocks.  I am really liking everything about the Herringbone block.

Here are today’s pictures:

I have been collecting fabric for my husband.  Every fabric has some type of meaning for him.  It’s going to be really special!

I had a great idea to use the Herringbone block to make the fold over clutch.  I think I have been bitten by the bag bug.  I am planning to make another fold over clutch tomorrow but this time I will be quilting it!  I am so excited ;0)

I will do a more detailed post on this block of the month class I am doing.  I am in love with these fabrics. 

I hope you are having a great night!  Until next time, Sew Pretty!

Herringbone Quilt Update

Hey Guys!

I have been busy at work on this quilt.  I have one more row left and sashing left to do but I will be going out today to “The Original Sewing Expo” here in Atlanta! I am sooooooo excited ;0) Can you tell?

Ready to go!

Ready to go!

Here is my quilt:

I have one more row left to do!

I have one more row left to do!

I am starting to like it…this quilt makes me think of ice cream for some reason…strawberry and pistachio ice cream.  Once I get back, I hope I will have some new experiences to share and something amazing that I will hopefully get for free.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Until next time, Sew Pretty!
