Playing along in Lily’s Quilts Fresh Sewing Day. Here is what I’ve been working on in July. Most of these items have already made an appearance on the blog, with the exception of the candy floss pink tutu and the bitty blocks. The tutu inspired a heated discussion about “what is feminism” on my Facebook page and will forever be known as The Feminist Tutu. It’s for my niece Clara who is all about pretty, pretty pink ballet princesses, but also likes to get dressed up to dig in the dirt and examine bugs, so I think she’ll turn out ok.
I’m slowly sewing my paper pieced diamonds together with the grey solid pieces. I only have a few more grey pieces to put in place and then I need to figure out how to add a border so the binding doesn’t cut off the points of the stars. I’m thinking I’m going to go hand work all the way on this one and quilt it with some perle 8 cotton, but I’m getting ahead of myself.
