Since I finished up sewing for baby #2, this week has been about sewing and quilting for two swaps that are due to be sent out pretty quickly after this baby comes. I knew this when I signed up and planned accordingly.
My Rainbow Mini Swap Quilt. I used my favorite Aurifil threads in white and then a range of rainbow colors to accent this colorful quilt. I love how it turned out. I just finished the binding on this one this morning and now I'm just waiting for some decent light for pictures. (If it ever stops snowing!)
For the Sweet & Salty Easter Swap we are making the medium size open wide pouch from Noodlehead. After looking for a few weeks for the perfect fabric, I finally found it on Spoonflower and ordered it right away. Well it arrived last weekend and quickly washed it and started cutting out. Now to just finish the little details and the goodies and I'll be all set.
With only 2 weeks left to go, my goal is to have all of the swaps done by the weekend, unless this baby has other plans.
What are you sewing this week?---------------------
Linking up with WiP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Using many colors of quilting thread is a great idea. I love how it gives a kind of plaid look to the quilt. Does the bobbin remain one color? Do you change it out all the time? Maybe I would do that on a domestic but probably not on a long arm.ReplyDelete
Since I quilt on my domestic machine I changed out the bobbin thread as well. It was a little bit of work, but I think the end result was worth it!Delete
