Card trick

Here is my next block done

image

I did finish it last week itself but couldn’t write about it till now.
I got a bit carried away while doing this block and didn’t check the instruction notes properly. It’s outer edge having six wedges of pattern was also the confusion factor. I joined the middle card circle completely and made ring of the wedges and then joined the two pieces in one. While the instructions say to make the two block halves and join them in two in last step.
Got a lesson to read the instructions in complete calmness before starting to sew.
I still have not decided on my next block. Maybe today I’ll do that and start by tomorrow.

FO finally

Finally I managed to tuck in the loose ends to say this project a completed one

I don’t have a model for this beauty. I have to post it to the recipient and wait for the modeled pics.
And I am all ready for my next block

Evening at the pond

image

Finished my evening at the pond block. This is the second block of ’round the year’ quilt blocks series posted on Betukbandihttp://betukbandi.wordpress.com
I had started stitching these blocks last year when the series was proposed on fb, but I couldn’t do more than two blocks last year.
I had taken the layout print last year itself for this block. So all I did for the last three days was to piece the tamplates, cut the fabric and assembled the block. Tried my best to get neat finishing, which is not my expertise.
The block is a square block, but I am planning to make cushion covers . So I am leaving it circular till my next step 🙂

A crafty day

I mostly do craft things unplanned… it’s like anytime if I feel like making a thing I’ll start immediately. If I don’t, the idea or plan never comes to life. Yesterday I thought of finishing some pending sewing. It’s a dress half done. But when I checked the draft I was not able to connect with that, one piece was missing. I started looking for the missing piece and ended up with bringing out the fabric scraps with plan of doing something with them. I started with a small patchwork pincushion

and later started for a patchwork cover for my sewing machine.

I tried doing a bit of quilting as well on the patchwork and I think I did good as a beginner 😆
