Sewing Update

Happy Monday!

Thought I would do a quick post to share what I've been up to.

A did some pattern testing for Angela Bullard
(aka Sewing with Squeak)

The pattern is great.
And also very big.
The block is 18.5 unfinished.

I loved this pattern.
Easy to read.
Easy to put together for an advanced paper piecing beginner.
It's now for sale on Craftsy.
You can find it HERE.

I'm also working on a mystery BOM by Pat Sloan.

These are also rather large blocks.
They measure 16.5" unfinished.
By the end of the year I will have a nice sized quilt.
I'm using a fabric bundle I won at a retreat last year.  It's 
Fresh Cut by Basic Grey for Moda.
I have to say I wish I would have switched the pink and the orange around for the second block.
It would have created more 'pop'.  Lesson learned!

My favorite project of the month though is this adorable little pixie basket by Heidi Staples of
Fabric Mutt.

I can easily whip one of these up in the morning before work.
I'm thinking it would make a fun Easter gift for some friends and family,
filled with little pieces of their favorite chocolates.
You can find the tutorial for this HERE

I hope you have been busy creating!
Let me know what you've been up to!

Those big blocks are looking great! And that little basket....omg!! Super cute. I'm afraid it would get lost in my current mess. Maybe it's time to clean up a bit.
