Sunday Shoes

Over the last few days, I have started on and made MAJOR progress on the shoe quilt, mainly because its so easy to do a few blocks at a time.

This is the first time I've used this type of pattern; you trace the cutting lines on your freezer paper and then iron it onto a pair of layer cake pieces and then cut on the lines. You sew pieces together in the order in the pattern and there's only two places you need to worry about matching. They need to be trimmed down, but I'll do that all at the end.

Anyways, my layer cake had 42 pieces and so I will get 42 blocks that end up around 7.5 inches square. 

Good luck starting your new weeks!

Sweet Endings

Despite the crazy going on the last two weeks, I managed to finish (yes, FINISH) my Seville top! Hooray!

This one was a tough one with all of the matching, but it is so beautiful!

I particularly love this one because nearly all of the fabric was "free to me" left over from my sister, except for the medium pink with the green polka dots and the white background. I had just enough fabric to do the borders.

Another to add to the finished top pile to take to the quilter while I am home!

(Get the pattern here!)
