It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Or something ;)   Mostly its a very stressful time of the year.   Workwise, things are INSANELY busy and stressful.   Add on top of that the looming holidays and projects that need to be completed – AHHH!

In any case, here is one of those aforementioned holiday projects, a hexagon lap quilt, in Chicopee.   It’s coming together pretty quickly, and I love the prints.  I’m using this super awesome tutorial from tallgrass prairie studio.

I’m back!

Back to work on the disappearing 9 patch!

Now that Halloween costuming foolishness is over and no longer taking up my studio space, I can finally get back to my projects.  Yesterday I put a good couple of hours into working on my disappearing nine patch – I sewed the half-units together and pressed open all the seams so I’ll be ready to finish assembling them this evening.

Thing I am proud of:   I am getting pretty good at matching points.  I only had a couple last night that weren’t pretty, and it’s nice to see progress in that area, since I’ve been struggling with it for a while.

Thing I am worried about:  I’m worried about the arrangement of the prints and contrast between all the pieces.  I sewed all these pieces together without much forthought, and I know it is going to wind up biting me in the end.

After I pressed all of these, I wants a change of pace, so I even sewed up a bunch of HST’s for my pinwheel project – so I got a lot of work done!
