Yes, my friends, the following blog post involves some sewing projects that have nothing to do with foundation piecing! It's true! I bet you thought it would never happen again. Truth be told I'm getting kinda tired of all the paper piecing myself and thought I would share a little recreational sewing - a just for fun kind of thing. A novelty to be sure.
I have made a few of these Divided baskets recently from a pattern by Anna Graham (Noodlehead) . This basket whipped up super fast and easy. This is really a fun pattern - so much so I wanted to make a couple more after this first one was done.
Also I needed a 'Fall' themed swap item for this month CMQG guild meeting so I decided to make an extra one. This one seems fallish no?
And finally, ok ok some paper was involved. I wanted to make this one all scrappy but with hexies. So I employed some English paper piecing ( a little different from Foundation piecing) on the pocket portion of the last basket.
Amanda) by Camille Roskelley are playing well with Lakehouse (Holly Holderman) and other fabrics (by Tasha Horsley) and the natural linen.
Turns out, mini-charm packs are perfect for 1" hexies ~ just a public service announcement for your information.
Bolt during the MQG meet-up in Portland last month.
And that's all for today folks. Happy Sewing!
